      The purpose of this mod is to add "alt" and/or "title" text to all <img> tags created by the forum for linked images in posts.

      For example, mouse-over this image:

      You will see the file name has been converted into "alt" text and is now visible when the mouse is over the image. Far more importantly however Google and other search engines will now pick up the text in the alt and/or title tags and consider that when determining the content of the image and overall content of the page.

      It can be argued that if your filename is already a good description of the image it doesn't add much to simply copy it for the alt text- and there is some truth to this although with SEO it does not hurt to reinforce the keywords in a perfectly legitimate and accepted way.

      However what about images straight from a digital camera with names like DCS101010.JPG or IMG282828.JPG or even a vBulletin attachment filename like attachment.php?blah-blah-blah=9192. None of these file names contain any useful information so without an "alt" or "title" tag to describe them it is lost SEO. On VB forums this has been a major concern over the years since VB lacked any way to add alt or title tags to these images.

      This mod now allows you to use the "Thread Title" as the alt or title text of the image. You can Set the title text to the file name and the alt text to the thread title, or vice-versa. Even better with this GOLD version you can use "Smart Tag" which will decide if the filename is a useful filename, and if not use the thread title.

      This mod will work on VB 4.1.10 and above without any manual file edits. For VB 4.0.0 through VB 4.1.9 you will need to add 1 line to the class_bbcode.php file, the instructions are included in the mod zip.

      Note: Released GOLD version for free and added it as a download option here.

    can you tell me the best settings pls

    The best settings IMO are what I use in the Screenshot (It's what I use on my forums.)

    Although the last 2 options would only be necessary if you use an image resizer mod. If not you can disable image resizer compatibility.

    i am using SevenSkins Image Resizer what ı will write ? also Title text type what is smart tag

    Unfortunately the SevenSkins mod looks like it is paid so I can't download it an see. It seems based on the ncode script so see if the default code works.

    If it doesn't I will need a link to a thread in your forum with a resized image (or an image that is supposed to be resized) so I can find the correct code.

    it worked thanx,the last question is on title text typle what should I choose ? filename + thread title,thread title or file name ?

  9. #10
    I like "Smart Tag" personally. Smart Tag will check the file name of the file- if it's only numbers or a common digital camera format it will use the thread title as the text to display. If the filename doesn't match a common format it will use the filename as the text because the filename probably has the best chance as being relevant.

    I would set the other option (either ALT or TITLE) to be the thread title as a backup in case the Filename in just gibberish.
