Changing the alt attributes
« on: May 08, 2006, 04:50:51 pm »

I'm going crazy - How can I change the alt attributes of all the images? Right now they show filesize etc and I can't figure out what file I need to edit to change this to the actual title of the image.

I've done a search through all files for 'alt="' and still haven't found the right one.

I'm using CPG 1.4.5.

If someone could point me in the right direction of which file needs to be edited thatd be great. I looked at other threads and couldn't find an answer either, sorry if I missed one.

Copy function theme_html_picture() from themes/sample/theme.php to the theme.php you're using. Within that function look for the img tag and modify it to your needs. That's for the intermediate view...

Thanks, I managed to get that working.

What I'm trying to do though is have the alt attribute set as the pictures title.

I've tried this code:

Code: [Select]
$pic_html = "<img src=\"" . $picture_url . "\" {$image_size['geom']} class=\"image\" border=\"0\" alt=\"{TITLE}\" /><br />\n";
But that just changes the alt to "{TITLE}".

Do you know how to get it to render the actual title? Do I have to pull it somehow in a different variable?

Thanks again

instead of TITLE
try
$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['title']

function theme_display_thumbnails  ;)
that's globally for all thumbs (not just the thumbs on index and not for the album thumbs on the index)

Thanks Stramm.

I found the function, but can't find the title="whatever" in it.

Is there somewhere that is defined? Or am I just missing it?

sorry, it's in include/functions.inc.php - function display_thumbnails

replace
Code: [Select]
                        $thumb_list[$i]['image'] = "<img src=\"" . $pic_url . "\" class=\"image\" {$image_size['geom']} border=\"0\" alt=\"{$row['filename']}\" title=\"$pic_title\"/>";
with
Code: [Select]
                        $thumb_list[$i]['image'] = "<img src=\"" . $pic_url . "\" class=\"image\" {$image_size['geom']} border=\"0\" alt=\"{$row['filename']}\" title=\"{$row['title']}\"/>";

as said, just look for the img tag in the function theme_html_pictures and modify it to your needs
then that's the relevant part for you in that function
Code: [Select]
            $pic_html = "<a href=\"javascript:;\" onclick=\"MM_openBrWindow('displayimage.php?pid=$pid&amp;fullsize=1','" . uniqid(rand()) . "','scrollbars=yes,toolbar=no,status=no,resizable=yes,width=$winsizeX,height=$winsizeY')\">";
            $pic_title = $lang_display_image_php['view_fs'] . "\n==============\n" . $pic_title;
            $pic_html .= "<img src=\"" . $picture_url . "\" class=\"image\" border=\"0\" alt=\"{$lang_display_image_php['view_fs']}\" /><br />";
            $pic_html .= "</a>\n";
        } else {
            $pic_html = "<img src=\"" . $picture_url . "\" {$image_size['geom']} class=\"image\" border=\"0\" alt=\"\" /><br />\n";

that's made-up code. There's no constant named title. Do as suggested in the previous posting.

hello Folks,

I made the adjustment show here by Stramm for the intermediate image, and I managed to get it right. Works great, thank you. However, I would also like to adjust the alt tag on the thumbnails page, and can't seem to get it to work. How do I make the alt tags for the thumbnails be the title I have coded in my IPTC data? I would also like the little yellow box that pops up when I mouse over a thumbnail to be the caption from the IPTC data. Are you saying I should adjust the include/functions.inc.php code? I thought I had read on here numerous times never to make adjustments to that code.

Any help is very much aprpeciated, as always.

Thank you.

Cheers

Carl

Hey Stramm,

Yes, I had read that, but just now re-read it (thanks).  I made the changes and it works great, thank you. I thought I had seen people here say never to change that file, so I wasn't sure if that's what I was supposed to do.

Thanks for your patience.

Cheers

you're absolutely right, the right way to do it is to copy that function to the theme.php you're actually using (from themes/sample/theme.php to eg. themes/classic/theme.php) and then do the editing
