CSS help: Add alt tag to social icons

Recommended Posts

danielfinn

I was wondeirng if it was possible to add an alt tag the social icons that come with Pagelines as default.

For example, I am using an SEO plug-in which searches through pages and finds thing to improve on. It tells me that each pages has at least one image without an alt tag. As most of my pages don't have images on, I am presuming it is finding the social icons.

Hi,

Which Social icons are you referring to, as the ones in the Branding area already have alts tags.


Please search our forums, before posting!

I am referring to the LinkedIn Facebook and twitter icons found at pagelines/siteoptions/headstand footer. On this screen I do not see options to modify alt tags. Is this because they are hard coded.

I am using badass short codes from the pagelines store. Do you know if these include alt tags? Or is this out of the scope of this forum?

The alt tags need to be hardcoded for the social icons. I'm not sure if Badass Shortcodes allows alt tags, but you should contact the creator to see: http://www.pagelines.com/store/plugins/ba-shortcodes/ (there is a Contact button on the left)


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Hi there, unfortunately you can't feed alt text via css, it has to be coded into the HTML. If you contact the developer of the plugin he may be able to offer a workaround for this.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      Hello,
      We are working on a site and the customers are complaining that the site loads too slowly. They contacted their host who mentioned that the Java Script is all loading at the beginning. Is it possible to delay the load of the less important Java Script until after the initial load to speed up the site? The goal is to load the page faster by minimizing the initial javascript calls.
      Are there any preferred plugins that you would recommend or does this end up causing excessive problems with plugins, etc.?
      Thanks for the help!
