Problems with ALT tags

by sinophilia » Thu Dec 21, 2017 7:38 am

We are facing a severe problem with our website, which is based on the WordPress theme Yamidoo Magazine. We tried to add ALT tags in the WordPress media library for our last blog post: http://socialmedia-blog.net/social-medi ... ich-china/. But even though they are filled, no ALT tags appear when I open the source code. My dev has tried to solve this problem by adding a plugin to populate the alt fields, but it didn't work. Do you have any idea how to solve this problem?

Best regards,
Stephan

Here is a WordPress snippet to put into your functions.php file to search your content for images which don't have an alt attribute. If they don't have an alt attribute this function will add it in with a default of the post title.

Code: Select all
function add_alt_tags($content)
{
        global $post;
        preg_match_all('/<img (.*?)\/>/', $content, $images);
        if(!is_null($images))
        {
                foreach($images[1] as $index => $value)
                {
                        if(!preg_match('/alt=/', $value))
                        {
                                $new_img = str_replace('<img', '<img alt="'.$post->post_title.'"', $images[0][$index]);
                                $content = str_replace($images[0][$index], $new_img, $content);
                        }
                }
        }
        return $content;
}
add_filter('the_content', 'add_alt_tags', 99999);


Hope it helps
