the alt tag
« on: October 14, 2010, 04:31:47 pm »


Been pulling my hair out for a few days wondering why google tells me the most prevalent keyword on my page is .jpg
(it shouldnt be crawling thumbnails.php but never mind)

I had a quick search on how to change the alt tag from the filename under 1.5x and could only find the following abandoned post
http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,66104.msg328686.html#msg328686


whether its to the album name, website url or even just the filename without the extenion any help on this one would be apreciated

as i say at the moment the alt text for each picture in my gallery is #####.jpg
which is screwing up the keywords when the site is crawled by the search engines

im just looking to edit the alt text for each picture whether there is a method to trim off .jpg or change it entirely
without having to edit several hundred manually

It's an easy task to trim the file extension. If that's the solution you want I'll come up with a code snippet. If you want to change it entirely, please specify what exactly should be used.

Open include/functions.inc.php, find
Code: [Select]
            $thumb_list[$i]['image']        = '<img src="' . $pic_url . '" class="image" ' . $image_size['geom'] . ' border="0" alt="' . $row['filename'] . '" title="' . $pic_title . '" />';and replace with
Code: [Select]
            $row['fileinfo'] = pathinfo($row['filename']);
            $thumb_list[$i]['image']        = '<img src="' . $pic_url . '" class="image" ' . $image_size['geom'] . ' border="0" alt="' . basename($row['filename'], '.'.$row['fileinfo']['extension']) . '" title="' . $pic_title . '" />';
