    Hi
    It'd be great if the plugin included the ability to specify 'alt'/'title' tags for each image. I've actually modified the plugin myself to add this ability. Let me know if you'd like the code, it'd be great if it was included in updates to the plugin.
    Cheers
    Matt

    Hello Matt,

    I found this deficiency also regarding the missing alt tabs. Could you send me your code? I am a relative newbie to Word Press. Will I be able to upload it as a plugin and install?

    Thank you.

    This is definitely a "need" for this plugin. When I view the source code, it shows empty alt tags but there is no way in the plugin to state an alt tag for each of the images. Very confusing.

    I'd love to know how you modified the plugin for this as well. Thanks!

    Hi guys
    I'd be please to send it to you. I was planning on syncing the changes from the latest version of the plugin before sending it to you though. If you need it urgently I can send it straight away.
    I was hoping to hear from the author of the plugin so that the changes could be incorporated, as otherwise any future updates to the plugin will overwrite the changes (unless the update includes my changes or similar ones).

    Hi

    I've now synced the changes from the latest version of the plugin, and emailed it to you Bob.

    I've also contact Nathan about the updates to see if he wants the changes with a view to including it in the plugin, and am waiting to hear back.

    hazeleyes7, if you'd like it, please contact me via my website UltraWebsites.com (I don't want to paste my email here).

    Cheers
    Matt

    Matt,

    Thanks, I now see the alt tags in the page source code with descriptions.

    No worries Bob :-)

    Hey Nathan, if you're reading this, you should mention somewhere in the plugin and/or the FAQs that the plugin requires the theme to use the wp_footer hook.

    Cheers
    Matt

    So, I'm not alone!!! I've been trying to figure out a way of adding alt text to my images with this plugin but with no joy.
    Matt, I will contact you through your site for the code if that's ok...

    I've posted the code for the WP-Cycle Plugin with alt tags. Thanks to Matt of ultrawebsites.com for adding fields to add the alt tags. I also modified it to set the title to be the same as the alt tags.

    @Ultrawebsites, thanks very much for doing this - much needed :)

    @ddubbua - brilliant that you've taken the changes & created an alternative version of the plugin, thanks too

    To Nathan : you have a great plugin, which I am just using for the first time - if "alt tags" can be included as standard that would be awesome!

    thanks!
