    Hi,

    am I the only one who sees missing title tags of images in galleries after the update?

  2. Once you've selected an image, the title, alignment, etc.. show up on the right hand side.
    No?

    I don't understand why they removed the title tag. Many gallery scripts rely on this to display the title. Any idea how to get it back? Some kind of plugin? I guess I will be not the only one who will be missing this feature.

    It's an accessibility issue. You should not be relying on title attributes for important information as not all user agents access or render this attribute. If you need to relay important information to visitors, use the caption functionality.

    I'm sorry (but not actually sorry) that the tooltip community has felt slighted by this one, but we won't need to make a change. We made a choice, and this choice on the whole benefits all users and readers, not just those using screenreaders. How often have you moused over an image on a WordPress site and saw "IMG_1234"? One of the lamest things ever. Never again.

    Tooltips can still be added by opening the Edit Image modal and inserting something into the title attribute box. The only change is that the "Title" field — which is the name of an image's attachment page — does not populate the title attribute.
