Automatic image ALT attributes

Description

Restores WordPress default functionality prior to version 4.7 where image ALT attributes were automatically generated and put into the HTML code. The ALT attributes were generated from the Caption (if it exists) else from the Title (if it exists) of the image in the Media Library. This plugin utilises Titles in generating ALT text, but does not utilise Captions. The Title used by this plugin, is the main Title of the image as found in the Media Library, not the HTML TITLE attribute of the image (that is something else, which this plugin ignores).

Installation

  1. Upload ‘automatic-image-alt-attributes’ directory to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

Reviews

Very practical and seems to work perfectly

Exactly what one needs who constantly forgets to put alt-attributes (or finds that task simply silly and time wasting). Thank you for that easy little plugin who seems to do this job perfectly! Please keep performance of it in mind and update from time to time so to know it's still secure and up to date (last update is already almost 1 year ago). Thanks again!
