SummerCatz, simply, a alt tag is a tag to describe, and to show a text if a image is not loaded. In other words, and alternative to the image. Google can index the text in a alt tag, which means if someone searches a image on google, your image can appear if you got the searchwords in your alt.
This is a query regarding messages number 7 and 9. I understand the bit about <img src="" alt="Description of image">
However, if you put an image onto a page using the input-image facility, it appears in the HTML as <DIV>$IMAGE1$</DIV> or <DIV>$IMAGE2$</DIV> depending on the image number. How can you input alt="Description of image"> into that set-up?
PKGarnerX, I don't think it is as simple as you suggest. I upload a GIF image to my website in Visual Editor using the entry $IMAGE1$ having defined IMAGE1 through a "+" button and a browse facility (which also asks for width & height).
When I change the editor to HTML Codes Panel, what I get is <DIV>$IMAGE1$</DIV>
I cannot see how to put in an ALT tag into that sort of code. If there was an equivalent version with IMG and SRC, I would know what to do. Message 11 from Paradox seemed to suggest there was no way of providing an ALT tag without "custom coding". Sorry if I'm overlooking something obvious.
