Support » Plugin: Auto Image Alt Attribute » Using existing ALT tag

  • Resolved joergagostini


    Hi there,
    first of all, thanks a lot for the plugin!
    I was wondering if it is possible for the plugin to use the existing alt attribute of an image (entered in WordPress backend) if it exists and if it doesn’t exist to use the image file name (as the plugin does at the moment)?

    Thanks for your effort.

    Hi @joergagostini,

    Thanks a lot for your love for plugin, can you please tell us is your alt attribute is not coming when you are uploading image from media uploader.


    Hi there,
    just for my own understanding, the plugin takes the image file name and uses it for the alt tags. It goes through the existing placed images and checks if there is an alt tag included in the image tag. If not, it uses the file name.

    So for that, the plugin works fine.
    My problem is, I updated the alt text on the images in my WordPress library after the images have been placed on the pages and of course WordPress is not automatically updating to the new alt tag text. So I was wondering if it is possible for your plugin to use the alt tag of the image library if there is one and if there is none it uses the file name?

    Hope this makes sense, a bit hard to explain.
