This plugin adds credits, link and license fields to media uploads and offer several
options to display image credits on your posts and pages. You can either:
- Use the [image-credit] shortcode. Optional attributes are
template(use curly brackets instead of square brackets for placeholders).
- Use the
the_image_credits()template tag. Optional parameters are
- Let the plugin automatically display the credits for you, before or after the
content or overlaid above each image.
- Use the widget to display the credits in the footer or the sidebars.
See the settings page to choose how you display the credits, including the HTML
used to build them.
This plugin is a fork of the Image Credits plugin
by Adam Capriola. It is 100%
compatible, if you are already using the Image Credit plugin just replace it
with this one and it will work about the same way, except you will have more control.
Following is the list of people and projects who helped me with this plugin,
many thanks to them 🙂
This plugin follows the standard WordPress installation
- Upload the
better-image-creditsfolder to the
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Go to the plugin’s settings page to configure the plugin.
Rather than fiddling around with notes in every blogpost, you just enter the details once per image and they’ll just appear; didn’t have to fiddle with code. Easy! Flexible as you’re able to edit what is actually used & displayed (text & links) in the credits (change language, remove anything you don’t want).
Makes it much easier to comply with (creative commmons) licence requirements!
