Support » Fixing WordPress » img title disappearing

  • I moved a blog from a WP-2.7 installation hosted on a linux platform over to a WP-MU-2.7 installation hosted on a Windows platform. I did this by doing a database export, massaging the data a little, and importing with WP-phpmyadmin.

    Since then, the site works perfectly, but whenever I want to change properties of a new or existing image on a page, both in the HTML and the Wysiwig editor, title="some title" attributes simply disappear when saving. After saving, they are simply gone. As in:
    <img href="/some/path" title="some title" /> turns, after saving, into <img href="/some/path" />. I am at a loss. Could this be a bug? or some kind of platform dependency? Or the effect of some plugin?

    Thanks for any help.

    The most likely candidate would be a plugin, in my experience. Not all WP plugins are MU compatible. Those that are may work slightly differently.

    First you need to validate your site. You’ve got some serious errors on there that could well cause IE7 to bork.

    Damn – I need to stop. Wrong tab. Sorry

    I just deactivated all plugins and tried again. Same effect. So I guess then it can’t be a plugin. Other ideas?

    I’ve not used MU but I’ve run WP on both Windows and Linux and haven’t noticed any differences at all. Had the title attribute been lost on old images only, I’d perhaps write it off as a by-product of the import. But the vanishing title on new images is really strange. This a real long-shot but you’re not using any kind of SEO theme, are you?

    I don’t know what an “SEO theme” is. For the theme at hand, I took the theme “WP Multiflex 5” and modified its css and background images. You can see the outcome here at http://johnbellicchi.com (he is a friend of mine). And I have also been using the “All in One SEO Pack” plugin. But as I said before, deactivating that plugin didn’t change anything.

    But how would that theme influence the WPMU setup only? and not also the normal WP setup? I really don’t understand what is happening.

    Thanks for any other suggestions

    Some of the SEO plugins amend the title attribute and I suspect that some themes that offer SEO features may do so too. I was looking for evidence of a “failed” title attribute amendment.

    Ok, great. How do we proceed?

    Right now, I’m stumped. One of the problems is that, without a vanilla WP-MU install on the same platform, it’s hard to rule out some sort of import artefact. MU isn’t that different from WP in terms of it’s basic core functions.

    I thought so too. The problem is that the vanilla WP-MU install on the same platform would require its own domain, and setting that up just to recreate this bug is a bit cumbersome. But I will if you tell me it is the only way that will lead us to paradise (err, a bugfix).

    Have you asked on the WPMU forums? They might have come across this before/

    oh – ok. sorry, I didn’t realize MU has their own support forums. I’ll be right over.
