Image/Gallery requests

  1. gcoghill


    Some image requests:

    • Allow a separate field for captions, so one can add alt tags and captions separately. Also, allow the captions to be disabled site-wide or per-image (in a post/page edit for the per-image)

    • The Media Library needs to have more of the same fields as found in the uploader: alt, title, description, and a separate caption as mentioned above


    • As many others have pointed out, the same image needs to be able to be inserted in multiple galleries.

    • More control over images in the Gallery: particularly, being able to specify the link of a Gallery image (I want to be able to link to a specific page).

    • Gallery images should be able to be added from the Media Library.

    There are a lot of things in this request, which makes it not an easy one to vote upon or comment, but the key thing I'd like to emphasize is the structure of the HTML image tag to be in line with web standards.

    Instead, the title becomes the title, the caption becomes the ALT and the caption (could be two different things), and if you don't want a caption and don't fill it in, no ALT is created, which is not proper form.

    I vote for either proper labeling in the form or having the three options with the ALT required, not the Title.

    I agree with the rest but the key issue that needs to be fixed is what is broken. The rest are feature requests.

    I agree with all of gcoghill's points. The caption and alt should definitely be two different fields as they perform two different functions! So now I can't use my captions as I would like because I have to make sure that the alt text is accessible...
