'Pagelines' prefix all my image names in DMS?

Recommended Posts

janpeeters

Hi,

 

I just noticed that all my images have a prefix Pagelines. Although I'm a big fan, I don't really feel for having Google search results for images on my site be filled with 'pagelines'. Especially not when I've already paid for a subscription.

 

Can you explain me how to get rid of this and I would like to ask you to please remove it from a future version.

 

Thanks, Jan

Hi Jan,

 

Can you provide a link to the site that has these prefixes please.

Jan, those prefixes are there to inform you that you have uploaded them via PageLines section. That prefix shouldn't add itself to your front end. The only thing that might appear is an alt tag with pagelines, but you can edit this.

 

Below is the code used for your image that you attached above.

 

<img width="300" height="225" src="http://cdn2.lovo.nu/cms/wp-content/uploads/2013-06-0413.04.311-300x225.jpeg" class="attachment-medium" alt="PageLines- 2013-06-0413.04.31.jpeg" data-lazy-loaded="true" style="display: inline;">

 

The only thing that needs changing is the alt tag, which you can do in the Media Library.

Hi Danny,

 

Thanks for explaining how this works and how I can get rid of the alt.

 

I still hope Pagelines will consider removing this 'feature'. I can't think of a way why it would be useful to know how a media file was uploaded. 

For me it's visually tiresome to read through the name of the company that I bought something from everytime I look at the media list.

 

I hope that the following was not the original idea but it's like programming the brand Pagelines even more into my mind and I'm already a happy paying user. So no need. 

 

I hope that in due time DMS will support placement of media via a native Wordpress media selector. That would be nice ;-)

All you have to do is go to the media page and change the title. If you want to.

 

You are clicking on the actual attachment page, and that uses the attachment title.

 

Most people have the opening of images to attachment pages disabled.

Thanks for clarifying that.

But I'd rather not have to change the name in the first place. Why Would I. I give a file the name I want for a specific reason. What I want to see in Media is that name. So I want to beg you and Andrew to have the name noise removed in an upcoming update. Thanks.

Jan,

 

I am sure there's a perfectly valid reason for this.  Since PlatformPro (an perhaps before), when any files have been uploaded via any PageLines settings, those prefixes have been attached.  Though the prefixes show when looking at the Media Library, when I look for example, at my logo and right click to save it the file name is the original.  Even if I view imaga info, the proper name, not the prefixed name, displays.

Hi Rob,

 

I've used Platform Pro, Platform Framework 2 and now DMS and have never seen it being attaches before. The images in my media library that date from v1 don't have it. But that's maybe because then you could use the regular Wordpress Media uploader?

 

And yes I've seen this "Though the prefixes show when looking at the Media Library, when I look for example, at my logo and right click to save it the file name is the original. " But why have it in the first place. I think it's unnecessary, visually tiring. I don't know why anyone would want it.

If your company has a good reason please explain if not please remove it in the next version.

 

Thanks, Jan

As I said above, its to simply to inform users that these images have been added though a PageLines upload option such as section background image etc..

99.9% of Wordpress users don't use the attachment page option, I for one, don't see the point in this functionality. Also, not sure what you mean by this

 

"But I'd rather not have to change the name in the first place. Why Would I. I give a file the name I want for a specific reason."

 

Not sure what you mean, so when you upload an image, you do not change the images title or alt text ?

Thanks for getting back to me. I understand that most users don't use the attachment page, I also don't. I've also understood that the prefix is to inform.

 

Been thinking a lot this morning about what causes us to not come together about my observations.

 

Because DMS doesn't use the native Media uploader/chooser and I'm working with sections that don't support title nor alt-tags (like iBoxes or Section backgrounds images) I have not been renaming titles and entering tags, didn't feel the need to because this information doesn't show up in the code.

When I UL images for a blog post I do that in the post page that has the native uploader where I enter titles and tags.

 

So renaming titles like Simon mentioned felt therefore as an extra step and unnecessary when only the name of my file (most of the time carefully chosen to be SEO proof) ends up in the code. That was what annoyed me. And I really feel it to be visually distracting that I have to read through information (the pagelines prefix) that has no use to me when I'm looking up images in Media.

 

I have not read a solid explanation why someone would want to be informed about the way an image was uploaded.

 

But I leave it at that. Maybe other users don't have a problem with it. I'd love to see it go. 

 

Thanks, Jan

If you do not use the Attachment page, then I am not sure what your issue is tbh. If you use the Attachment page, then you will see the pagelines- prefix as you will need to change the title/alt text.

However, if you simply upload an image to a MediaBox, there is no way for the prefix to appear in your sites code, as the alt text/tag isn't used. So can you provide a page on your site where this prefix in your code please.

I guess we're stuck in a loop now. So I should have given you more info. Because I was already past the 'showing up in the code' problem.

I have understood in the meantime that it doesn't show up in the code unless you use attachment pages.

 

But what I still find annoying (and this was the initial reason for posting) is when I'm visiting my Media page that I see this

And I quote myself: "I really feel it to be visually distracting that I have to read through information (the pagelines prefix) that has no use to me when I'm looking up images in Media. I have not read a solid explanation why someone would want to be informed about the way an image was uploaded."

I don't think were in a Loop, the way you said or the way I interpreted it was that every uploaded image when using DMS added a pagelines prefix to your images that was showing up in your sourcecode and which you didn't want due to SEO.

 

Both myself and Simon, have pointed out to you that this isn't the case and the only time it does so, if when you view the attachment page, but this can easily be removed by editing the title/alt text.

 

If you feel that this is a real annoyance and one that you would like removed, then open a ticket on our issue tracker. However, as far as I am aware you're the only person to bring this up.

 

The prefix is there to help users, not give us extra SEO.

Hi Danny,

 

The SEO thing was something I got wrong when I posted the first time I've understood meanwhile that this is not the case. So I'm sorry for that assumption.

 

I'll open a ticket regarding the Media library and we'll see from there. 

 

Thanks, Jan

I still did not get the answer. There is no use for this "information". How one can get rid of this?
