Add Alt Text to Linked Images by BOP5 (VB 4.1.10+)
Mod Version: 1.5, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.1.10 Rating: (15 votes - 4.87 average) Installs: 93
Released: 15 Jan 2012 Last Update: 16 Mar 2012 Downloads: 319
Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code  



Current Version: 1.5

This is the Standard Version. The GOLD Version is FREE but available only from:
Qapla.com - Add Alt Text GOLD VB4 by BOP5 Mod

The GOLD edition has 1 additional feature: Smart Tagging
Smart Tagging will check the filename of an image for useful information. If the mod believes the filename can be useful to describing the image it will use a cleaned and formatted version of the filename as the alt or title text. If the mod sees that the filename is all numeric, or a common digital camera format, or a vbulletin attachment filename it will instead use the thread title as the alt/title text for the image.

The Standard edition has only 3 options for alt or title text, each of which can be set independently. - Use Filename, Use Thread Title, or use both Filename AND Thread Title to create the tag.

The purpose of this mod is to automatically add "alt" and / or "title" tags to linked images in vBulletin forums.

By default vBulletin leaves the alt tag blank on all linked images. However image searches like Google scan for alt and/or title tags to determine what the image is and having these tags can increase your SEO in regards to images and perhaps regular SEO as well.

It can also benefit visually impaired users who may be using a screen reader.

Demo: http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread...?p=325#post325

VB 4.1.10+ Preferred. No manual file edits necessary.
VB 4.0.0 - VB 4.1.9 - 1 manual file edit required. Directions in .zip.

Hey Bop

This is my source code around the alt text ->>>

<img class="thumbnail" src="attachment.php?attachmentid=75410&amp;stc=1&amp;thumb=1&amp;d=1358021059" alt="Click image for larger version.&nbsp;

Name: image.jpg&nbsp;
Views: 0&nbsp;
Size: 94.0 KB&nbsp;
ID: 75410" title="Click image for larger version.&nbsp;

Name: image.jpg&nbsp;
Views: 0&nbsp;
Size: 94.0 KB&nbsp;
ID: 75410">
Makes image SEO impossible. I was wondering if this was a conflict with lightbox? I think that inserts this certain alt text.

I'd happily pay you to look at this in private also. I've disabled any image related mod, so I find it odd that it doesn't work.

If I ran this through the debugger what should I see? What should look normal?

I disabled the macro resizer and used the quick resizer and it works but how do I adjust the alt text to remove "name:...." from it?

example:

Those are Attachments, not linked images. That text would be the same whether or not this mod was installed because it is generated by vBulletin.

This mod only works on images embedded using [img] BBCode (external images usually)

Please "Mark as installed" if using this.

Save it...

now people can include images like:

How does this work BOP5 once you create the custom bb code? I created the bb code but when I wrap the image with this bb code the image wont show up , only the custom bb code's tag...

That's an issue with the other mod- I'll followup in the Word Links mod thread.

Please "Mark as Installed" though if you are using this mod.

Nice work Joe! Installed and testing.

One question - If you use the smart tag on both the title and alt txt will they both show the same thing? What do you recommend for this?

Thanks,
Rich

Hello,

Yes both would be the same in that case.

Personally I use filename for the alt and smart tag for the title. I don't know that there is any logic to this other than I would suspect the filename would be more useful to people who see the alt text than the thread title would be which may be the case if it was using the smart tag.

I was thinking the same thing.
