    WordPress & Image Title Tags

    When I initially set up my WordPress blog, I left the file name for the title tag for images, but inserted a description with keywords for the alt tag for images. Now, I think I'd like to change the title tags on all the existing blog photos and make them unique to each photo -- IF this can be done relatively easily.

    I've tried both modifying the title tag for photos in the WordPress Media Library, and also within the actual code for each photo in the posts -- but the changes do not taken effect.

    It looks like the WordPress plugins that add title tags do not allow making unique changes to individual image title tags.

    Am I overlooking something? Is there any way to modify existing image title tags in a WordPress blog without resorting to re-uploading those images?

    Thanks.

    We can't really help without knowing what plugin you are using which is causing this problem. It certainly isn't a problem with a default WP install as the code is controlled directly in the editor box.

    Hi, Ryan -- It hadn't occurred to me that there might be a plugin problem, because I don't specifically have a plugin that is intended to address image title tags. But since you're saying the default WP install should allow changing the title tag via the editor box, then maybe it is a plugin that's not allowing me to change the title tag in the editor box.

    Following are the plugins currently activated. Does anything look suspicious? Thanks.

    Oh, my. Please halt any head-scratching regarding my inquiry! I'm afraid I had misapplied a revised title tag in the editor box. When I went back in and checked the post I'd initially tried to alter, I saw the error.

    Thanks for at least responding, Ryan, because it prompted me to take a closer look at the code.

    My sincere apologies. I don't want folks wasting their brain power on a false problem!

    Best,
    Deb

    Yes, I've been "rescued" many times by the gracious folks here, and I try my best not to post frivolous inquiries. This particular issue kind of slipped by me, though.
