Can't edit the ALT tag?
« on: March 22, 2011, 12:23:06 am »

http://www.wiizelda.net/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=1

No matter what I edit in /themes/sample/theme.php, I can't change the alt text of thumbnail images in the displayimage.php file (the image you click on to open a popup of the full size image).

I got this code from another thread, I am using it now.
$pic_html .= "<img src=\"" . $picture_url . "\" class=\"image\" border=\"0\" alt=\"{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['title']}\" title=\"{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['title']}\"/><br />";

But as you can see in the URL above, the alt text of the image still says "Click to view full size image".

What am I doing wrong?

You're using the theme 'water_drop', so you have to edit that theme's theme.php file, not that one from the sample theme.

I already tried to to dat, but this is all that there is in the water_drop.php theme file:

<?php

// HTML template for template sys_menu spacer
$template_sys_menu_spacer = '<img src="themes/water_drop/images/orange_carret.gif" width="8" height="8" border="0" alt="" />';

?>

So where could this alt tag be?

Hey makwz

The code is in your sample/theme.php file.

This is the part, I think, that will work: you replace the default code with what you listed above.

Code: [Select]
$pic_html .= "<img src=\"images/image.gif?id=".floor(rand()*1000+rand())."\" width={$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pwidth']} height={$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['pheight']} border=\"0\" alt=\" {$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['title']} \n {$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['caption']}\" /><br />" . $LINEBREAK;
That will put both the title and the caption of the image in the alt tag. I'm not 100% sure, but I think this is where you make the change; in the section marked
Code: [Select]
/******************************************************************************
** Section <<<theme_html_picture>>> - START
******************************************************************************/
// Displays a picture

Copy that entire section to your water_drop/theme/php file and before the ?>

Hope this works for you.

Cheers

Carl

I tried editing all the <img> codes in the function you suggested, but to no avail. I've even tried replacing every single instance of the language variable that outputs "Click to view full size image" with {$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['title']} throughout sample/theme.php file but the gallery still has the damn "Click to view full size image" text in the image alt tags.

So I guess wherever this alt tag is it isn't in sample/theme.php, anyone have any idea where it could be?

You have to copy that part from themes/sample/theme.php to the theme.php file of your theme before you edit it! How should your theme know that you changed something in a different theme? Please post the link of the thread you got that code from:
Code: [Select]
$pic_html .= "<img src=\"" . $picture_url . "\" class=\"image\" border=\"0\" alt=\"{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['title']}\" title=\"{$CURRENT_PIC_DATA['title']}\"/><br />";

Well it's pretty obvious that the water_drop theme uses the sample/theme.php file. The contents of water_drop/theme.php, as posted above, is just two lines of PHP code, plus how do you think I managed to edit the alt tags of thumbnails on the homepage of the gallery via sample/theme.php, despite the theme being water_drop?

Never mind, got it working now  ;) I copied the function from sample/theme.php to the water drop's theme file and things are working now. It was confusing me because I was able to edit some aspects of the water_drop theme through sample/theme.php without having to copy it to the actual water_drop theme.php file. Thanks for the help all.  ;D
