NextGEN Gallery
Alt & Title Text and Description Not Saved (4 posts)

    NGG does not save Alt & Title Text or Description entries.
    I uploaded a set of photos and then entered text for Alt text/Titles and Descriptions. After clicking the Save Changes button, all the Alt/Title fields reverted to upload values: file names, or "Digital Camera." All description fields reverted to blank or "Digital Camera." ("Digital Camera" seems to be in the metadata in some of the images)
    I tried entering these fields for just one photo at a time, and saving. In another window, I viewed the results, and for the last description entered and saved, I was at that time able to see the caption in the lightbox and as a title in the thumbnail gallery, as I desired. However, it was saved only for the most recent entry. Captions I saved previously were now wiped out, apparently at the last save. Returning to the gallery management screen, the fields I had entered were blank or returned to the value from when the images were uploaded.

    Yes, it still wipes out previously entered alt tags/titles, and descriptions on save.

    Yes, it still wipes out previously entered

    For debug you have to try to insert data after plugins deactivation and default theme activation.

    Yes, I did turn off all the plugins, select theme Twenty Twelve, and try to enter data. The behavior was unchanged.

    Well, at this point I think Photocrati would tell you to submit a bug report here
