    Modifying Alt Attribute in Images Link to this post

    I noticed when I do "insert image", the alt attribute is missing from img tag:
    <img class="left" src="assets/Uploads/SilverStripeLogo.png?r=59381" hspace="null" vspace="null" width="424" height="376" align="null" >

    It has other attributes that I don't need such as hspace, vspace, and class. Is there a workaround so that when I do an "insert image", it will automatically insert the alt tag?

    From searching thru the forum and the documentation, it looks like the only method to update an image alt attribute is via the HTML in the Content Editor. Is this the case or am missing something?

    Ya, in 2.2.x it handled it pretty badly with the extra garbage code.

    In 2.3 it's all cleaned up and working like expected.
