Image Alt Attribute

    Is there a way to automatically insert an image title attribute? When uploading pictures I specify the Alt Attriubut. If I want to insert the picture in the text I always have to specify the alt attribute again.
    Automatic insertion would be desirable.
    Is it possible to adopt this in future versions?

    It is not a good idea, because I delete automatically generated text.

    @cnsolutions Actually yes you can, but it involves utilizing the meta data of the images, and that's not easy for most people. WordPress auto inserts whatever it detects.

    Now you will notice that by default WP doesn't insert title. You would need to write a filter for that. It can be done.

    @indiepict - if you don't care to use it you can continue what you're doing. You could even automate that.

    Great solution i'll give it a try myself. The alt tag should always be consistent when using it wherever.

    Are alt attributes considered as duplicate content in a website with this plugin ?
