Attribute "Alt" on images must to be improved on editor
|Reported by:||metacortex||Owned by:||ryan|
Recently i noted a change in WP 2.9 beta about ALT attribute. At last is possible include an alternative string without touch the caption.
However, this ALT string is stored on wpdb_postmeta table; why to proceed in this way? Now WP 2.9 must to query two large tables to construct a simple image tag. On the other hand, is true the actual Alt/Caption problem must to be solved. I propose:
- Using post_title for "title", post_content for "caption"/"description" (shared) and post_excerpt for "ALT" text. or...
- Use the same db structure as WP 2.8.X, with the difference a new checkbox would be added for activate caption, as is shown in the image i'm attaching.
If three fields into wpbd_posts are available to this job, why to use a postmeta field to store ALT data? I don't understand the reason.
