    nancybellscott,

    You can have alt text appear when hovering over your image by first clicking on your image in editing, then clicking the “link” icon above your post. In the box that appears, type the alt text you want on the “Title” line.

    Thank you very much. I don’t think WordPress staff or support addressed the multiple questions about this and about the open new window option, or provided these simple instructions to anyone here. If they did, I missed it.

    musicdoc, I believe you’re right. These couple of instructions appeared only once or twice in many many recent pages of frustrated questions from people, and at least one instruction was from another wp member. Possibly the other was from staff. Not sure about that, but it took me literally days of reading to discover them.

    In any case it’s inexcusable for WordPress not to respond to these basic needs of their customers after all hell breaks loose as a result of their unannounced changes. My great opinion of WordPress for several years has taken a big nosedive.

    Right, I’ve been happily using galleries in my posts in the past – tiled mosaic, generally – but now I can’t get them to appear like that no matter what I select. Even circles. I still get thumbnails…

    Help!

    @comboni-

    I looked into that image and you just have to add:

    style=”border:0″ to the image tag in the Text Editor. So an example of this is:

    <img style="border:0" class="alignleft wp-image-0000 size-full" src="http://XXXXXXX.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/XXXXXXX.jpg" alt="XXXXXXX" width="800" height="400" />

    That will remove the border.

    Cheers!

    <img style=”border:0″ class=”alignleft wp-image-0000 size-full” src=”http://XXXXXXX.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/XXXXXXX.jpg” alt=”XXXXXXX” width=”800″ height=”400″ />

    Did I miss something in the last 40 years ? because the last time I was expected to write computer instructions like this was, machine code back in the 1970’s.
    Gosh WordPress have come a long way: now I understand the saying “what goes around, comes around”

    I really really want you to bring back the border and padding feature of editing images.

    I use that ALL THE TIME!

    This new version of WP 3.9 makes it worse

    thanks!

    Hello

    The old image editor included the choice of edges by a checkbox. It was very simple.

    Now we need to enter HTML code. Is it permanent or temporary?

    (translated by translate, I’m french).

    Cordially.

    <img style=”border:0″ class=”alignleft wp-image-0000 size-full” src=”http://XXXXXXX.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/XXXXXXX.jpg” alt=”XXXXXXX” width=”800″ height=”400″ />

    You’re kidding right? It was working fine and someone broke it?

    I’d like to know how to do the following in the new set-up (all options available under “Advanced Settings” in the old set-up):
    1. Add a border of particular width to my image.
    2. Add extra vertical or horizontal space around my image.
    3. Title my image (not the alt text or the caption, but the actual image title; right now it’s a URL that I can’t amend).
    4. How to set my image links to open in a new window (ideally without having to do this separately through the link button on the Kitchen Sink).
    For the record, I also will miss the percentage resizing options, as that helped me ensure that multiple images on my blog all ended up as the same size!

    Fifteen pages of complaints and still going strong. There’s a message here …

    And the folks over at WordPress.ORG just figured out that this fine image “upgrade” came with the 3.9 upgrade – not happy campers at all –

    @windwhistle: I am not surprised. I was pretty shocked myself when I saw the changes on todays upgrade. It looks horrible…

    I have the acquired the names numbers of all the developers. I am currently in the process of calling each and every one of their mothers. Maybe a little “time out” or a curtailment of their TV privileges will bring them to their senses. I’ve already had a few “Wait til his father gets home” replies.

    Here is the answer !

    install this plugin…

  • https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-image-styles/
  • Just click on “Pencil” / go to “Advanced Options”

    Enter border pixel value and colour value (e.g. 4 , #aa8888)

    Thank you Gregory Cornelius, the plugin writer

    Why this could not be added by the program makers , I don ‘t know ?

WordPress.com users cannot install plugins. WordPress.org has separate forums.

WP has a right, even a responsibility, to try to make some income from products, features they incorporate or develop. That remains true for products and features previously given away.

What I object to is that I never see warnings about major changes before they are rolled out, no attempts to explain how the changes might adversely affect your blogging experience, and, after the damage is done, seldom an admission that this is in fact the case despite dozens of irate users explaining precisely how their blogging experience has been degraded and/or ruined by certain changes. Rarely, if ever do I see an attempt to explain the purposes behind the modifications made in “updates,” or an admission that an inherent result of the changes implemented is often that the user might have to pay in the future for a feature or set of features that had been free for past three, four, five years.

Also, I’ve never heard them ask us to test and give feedback on “updates” prior to their being implemented. Instead, they are just thrust upon us, as if there were no reason to ever consider whether users might raise legitimate objections, or suggest reasonable alternatives, to proposed changes.

Ah…I understand !

“Plugins on WordPress.com

On WordPress.com, we include the most popular plugin functionality within our sites automatically. As a result, WordPress.com users won’t find a Plugins tab in the Dashboard.”

That’s even worse for you…

In that case, WordPress developers, why not include this plug-in, even if only temporarily should you be intending to restore functionality in other ways?
