Where to add "alt" tags (11 posts)

    This plugin is working really well, it would just be great if it automatically displayed "alt" tags so the markup validates properly. Any ideas on how I can achieve this?

    Also, it would be awesome to have the option not to display the text, just thumbnails in certain cases.

    Thanks for a great plugin!


  2. I'm not promising any sort of time line, but I'll try to work these options into my fork of this plugin


    If you wanted to hack the plugin yourself, you could remove the text by editing line 234

    from $postlist .= '<li><a href="' . get_permalink($post->ID) . '" title="'. $post_title .'" >' . $image . $post_title . '</a>' . $excerpt . "</li>";

    to $postlist .= '<li><a href="' . get_permalink($post->ID) . '" title="'. $post_title .'" >' . $image . '</a></li>';

    Not sure of the exact change to add an alt tag right now, but for that, you'd probably need to edit line 208

    Bitchin', thanks for the info. I see you listen to a lot of music; what genres do you like, if you don't mind me asking? I produce and DJ, so I'm kinda curious.

    Thanks again for this handy plugin.


  4. The original plugin is not mine, so I can't take any credit for that. I just needed more options then that plugin provided, so I've forked it made my modifications available to anyone who wants them.

    As for what I listen to: http://www.last.fm/user/trepmal

  5. I've just submitted version 1.5 (as a dev release only) which adds an option to the widget for showing/hiding the post title as well as a few other options.


    it appears to work just fine, but until I fully test the update from 1.4, I'm leaving it as a dev-download only

    Okay, it works. Yayyy! I like the feature "Display Title" or something like that, thanks for implementing that.

    The alt tags still aren't there, thus the markup doesn't validate. Should I just do that myself? My concern is when I update this plugin in the future...I don't want to override my edits, then have to do it again.

    Thanks again.

  8. For now, you can hard-code an empty alt tag into the plugin (line 400 or so, look for "if ($img))

    I haven't yet added the code to grab the alt tag from an existing image.

    ahhhhh, im loving the new features you added. Thank you.

    I have a request/question:

    How do i set the Thumbnail Custom Field Name to actually use the Featured Image from the post/custom type ? Can i define what size of thumbnail to use?

    If this is not possible right now, it would be nice to add it.

    Thanks again!

  11. It's not a possibility right now, but I'll certainly consider incorporating this into a future release.
