Tooltips on Images
« on: November 17, 2012, 11:49:11 AM »
I added an image just now, and it doesn't have a tooltip.  Do screen readers read out the text in between the [img ] brackets or does the image just get ignored?

I wondered if it was possible to add tooltips to images here.

I think I have done that before, but I use several different systems and can't remember if it was here or somewhere else...

Thanks in advance!

Sorry about the long wait for an answer.

I add the tooltips to the emoticons when I upload them to the database via a option in the admin tools for the board.

I did try to find out if there was a way of doing the same thing in a post and could not find an answer.

There probably is away to do it just I dont know it  :-(

If you wish any new emoticons to be added post them here and I will add them including a tooltip.

Thanks SunshineMeadows - looks like it was another system I was using when I added tooltips to an image myself...

Never mind - I will remember to write a description under any images I post in future.  >thumbsup<

Please could we have >ufo< adding to the emoticons list?  >biggrin<
