Using/Editing a Tooltip for an Image
Would anyone know the answer to this other than the WP folks who are not responding?
These are part of the WP instructions on their site for using a tooltip with an image:
Note: The title added in this field does not display as a tooltip (when a mouse is hovered over the image). To add a tooltip title, edit the image after inserting it into the post, and add your tooltip wording to the Title field.
I have asked this question over and over. I’m not sure why WP cannot tell me how to edit all my image tooltips for the images on my blog. Do I have to forever keep what I already have as tooltips for my previous images because of the new changes WP made? The tooltips still shows up on my old images but there’s no instructions anywhere on how to edit these since the image changes were made by WP.
So I don’t know if that means we cannot do an image tooltip anymore (where you hover over the image and see the wording of what we wrote over that image) for NEW images on posts OR if we are stuck with the tooltip wording that we’ve already used for previous images until the changes were made. The tooltip wording still shows for all my old images but I can’t find these words to edit anymore.
Thanks for any help.
The blog I need help with is lovingfoodfashionlife.com.
I’m sorry I don’t have any answer for you. I’ll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.
Why did my advanced settings for images disapear? I want to get a “tooltip” when my visitors lay the mouse over my image in my blog. I could do it before but not now. Why? I don’t like the changing you make.
Sorry for my bad english.
Staff have been making changes and this is a result of those changes.
I try’d too read there but I did’nt found anything about tooltips. But I’m not so good in english. I don’t have so much education in english. I am better to write in swedish.
I will be happy if the Staff take a look on this. Maybe it’s not so difficult to make that little change?
You are doing every well in English. Please be patient while waiting for Staff to respond. They have a lengthy backlog and it may be some time until they answer.
Thank you for responding, Timethief. I will continue to wait and assume they are working on this problem.
You’re welcome. Note it is now in your best interest not to post again to this thread as that moves the timestamp forward and it will take longer to get Staff help.
Over the past several months we have been removing tooltips from images in various places. This is being done in part for for accessibility reasons.
