    Hello @bobhhh @oksanaromaniv

    Thanks for reporting the issue – will see if we can replicate it and if so resolve. Will let you know what we find.

    @kbat82 Sorry we have posted a duplicate issue here – it is the same issue but does not look like @fakhris is in hurry to resolve the issue. (This ticket is 2 weeks old)

    It is not a difficult fix and the error is a pretty basic one.

    As I have explained elsewhere there is no need to add a ALT tag to the Lazy Load loading placeholder Gif as Google can see the image url and the image ALT text.

    In fact adding a fixed ALT text to the lazyload placeholder would harm your SEO and affect User Accessibility.

    You can read Googles Image Best Practices guide here

    https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/114016?hl=en

    In that Guide they recommend using a Google Chrome extension called ‘Accessibility Developer Tools” but you’ll see it has been depreciated in favor of Google Lighthouse’ https://developers.google.com/web/tools/lighthouse/

    You can check this for yourselves by running a Google Lighthouse audit on your page / post.

    In the Accessibility section it will list any images that are missing ALT text that can be seen by Google

    Look in the ‘Names and Labels’ section. It will list the “Failing Elements’ there

    If you see this
    img.lazy-hidden

    Put your mouse over it and you will see which image or images that are being lazy loaded and don’t have ALT text

    The Lazy Load URL to Google looks like this – this URL tells Google bot that the images is lazy loaded and the url of the ‘real’ image (and the image meta data)

    <image class= “lazy-hidden” src=exampledomain.com/wp-content/plugins/a3-lazy-load/assets/images/lazy-placeholder.gif data-lazy-type= “image” data-src=”http://exampledomain.com/wp-content/uploads/imagename.jpg” align=”centre’>

    If you see that, it means that your image does not have ALT text. Add ALT text to the image and test again and you will not see it listed. If you still don’t see it and the image is being added by another script, example a slider, you now know that the slider does not support ALT text for the images in the slider (it happens).

    Once the image/s have ALT text this is what Google Bot sees

    <image class= “lazy-hidden” src=exampledomain.com/wp-content/plugins/a3-lazy-load/assets/images/lazy-placeholder.gif data-lazy-type= “image” data-src=”http:exampledomain.com/wp-content/uploads/imagename.jpg” align=”centre’ alt=”your alt text”

    If you are using some third party SEO optimizing tool that is telling you that lazy loaded images don’t have ALT text then you should report this to the developers and ask them to update their script to view lazy loaded images the same way that Google search bot see’s them.

    Hope that helps

    Hello @easykorean

    Have you tried clearing the site caching – purging it? The issue may be as simple as that.

    There are no known issues with WP 5.2.1 and Page View Count

    I am not sure about MySQL 5.0 (released in 2005) – that is a very old version – also the recommended PHP version for WordPress is 7.2.0

    I’d actually recommend you update both. MySQL 5.0 has many know vulnerabilities. If your host is charging you to upgrade to MySQL 5.6 you should ask that they upgrade the server to MySQL 5.7 I don’t think it is possible to upgrade MySQL 5.0 to either 5.6 or 5.7 – they would have to backup your database – remove 5.0 install 5.6 or 5.7 and upload your data and hope for the best. Hopefully they have it wrong and it is MySQL 5.5

    Regards

    Hi – you are seeing those issues because the sliders you are using does something with the image urls example appends code to it which means that lazyload can’t find the image to load it.

    Often this is just a simple fix for the slider developer to add a bit of code so that lazyload can find those images.

    If you would like to reach out to them a3 Lazy Load has its own github repo that you can point them too, where the slider developers can access the full code and reach out for help if they need it.

    This is the github repo

    No sorry I don’t have a fix for the image position issue – could be any number of things causing that and would require digging into the code or contacting the gallery developer.

    If you are removing it you could also try our WooCommerce Dynamic Gallery Free version – just search that in the wordpress plugins. But it may have same issue as it looks like some code from the theme could be causing that – If you do install our Dynamic Product gallery and you are still seeing that you definately should contact the theme developer.

    I will mark your issue as rsolved now as we seem to have dealt with the lazyload issue.

    Please view the URL as Google sees it in your Google Search Console. You will see that the Google AI does not even see the lazyload placeholder – it only sees the image and the ALT tags you have on your images.

    Hi @mentikyusmantara

    Thanks for being a loyal a3 LazyLoad user. The reson that you are seeing that is because they are prepending images with somehing and a Lazyload does not know what that is and hence can’t find the images to apply lazyload. Please reach out to the Newspaper theme developer and ask them to add compatibility for a3 LazyLoad. Often all that requires is adding a small piece of scriptto their theme that enabless lazyload to find the images.

    They have full access to the script on the a3LazyLoad github repo and can reach out to us on there if they need any assistance from us in doing that.

    @power911

    I see that you are using a Portfolio – that will be made by the theme or a plugin. When the page loads – lazyload loads a very small square place holder image 16kb in size instead of the image. It then gets the image dimensions and loads the image – if the portfolio developer has code that obsures the image dimensions by adding some script repend the image src then lazyload can’t find either the images or if it can can’t read the image dimensions. If that is the case it will load them as a square image as a ‘best guess’

    Please contact the portfolio developer and ask them to make their portfolio compatible with a3 LazyLoad. They can view all of the lazy load code on the Github repo and reach out ot us there if they need any assistance in doing that

    I would think that is a a caching issue. WordPress updates nowdays have many changes to the core JavaScripts – you should clear your browser cache (aand all other site caching) after each WordPress update nowdays it is essential.

    Ok the first thing to do is clear your safari browser cache – or try it on another machine in a safari browser that you have not viewed a product page in for some time.

    I looked at the link you posted – that pageloadsvery slowly – with 7.8MB of images – but I do not see lazy load.

    The second thing I note is that you are using either the plugin or theme for your product image gallery and something else for the cards – maybe that is the Carousel that you mean. All the images are loading in the first pageload and this is dramatically slowing the load.

    I also see the product image gallery have trouble getting its position – it loads align left and after a short delay it jumps to the centre of the image container- which is not desirable from a user experience point of view.

    Anyway back on topic – try the clear your safari browser and see if that resolves the issue for you.

    From the plugins dashboard you can exclude any page via its URI

    see this screenshot for where you do that
