Add Alt Text to Linked Images by BOP5 (VB 4.1.10+)
Mod Version: 1.5, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.1.10 Rating: (15 votes - 4.87 average) Installs: 94
Released: 15 Jan 2012 Last Update: 15 Mar 2012 Downloads: 321
Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code  



Current Version: 1.5

This is the Standard Version. The GOLD Version is FREE but available only from:
Qapla.com - Add Alt Text GOLD VB4 by BOP5 Mod

The GOLD edition has 1 additional feature: Smart Tagging
Smart Tagging will check the filename of an image for useful information. If the mod believes the filename can be useful to describing the image it will use a cleaned and formatted version of the filename as the alt or title text. If the mod sees that the filename is all numeric, or a common digital camera format, or a vbulletin attachment filename it will instead use the thread title as the alt/title text for the image.

The Standard edition has only 3 options for alt or title text, each of which can be set independently. - Use Filename, Use Thread Title, or use both Filename AND Thread Title to create the tag.

The purpose of this mod is to automatically add "alt" and / or "title" tags to linked images in vBulletin forums.

By default vBulletin leaves the alt tag blank on all linked images. However image searches like Google scan for alt and/or title tags to determine what the image is and having these tags can increase your SEO in regards to images and perhaps regular SEO as well.

It can also benefit visually impaired users who may be using a screen reader.

Demo: http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread...?p=325#post325

VB 4.1.10+ Preferred. No manual file edits necessary.
VB 4.0.0 - VB 4.1.9 - 1 manual file edit required. Directions in .zip.

4.1.8 was very troublesome for many modifications (buggy as all hell).

4.1.10 re-does alot of the style vars.

You're best to upgrade (my option)

Looking at this example URL from Photobucket:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It appears Photobucket does keep the original file name *Bunny" in this case, so yes it should work with Photobucket uploaded images.

Because the hook used by this mod was introduced in version 4.1.10, the only way it would work on older versions is with a manual file edit.

If you want to try in 4.1.8 you will need to edit your file /includes/class_bbcode.php

Find the function:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and add the hook manually so it becomes:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

You would also need to edit the xml file in the zip and change the min version near the top to 4.1.0 or any number less than or equal to your version.

Be warned though there were over 30 new hooks added to 4.1.10- there will be a lot of new mods coming that will only work with 4.1.10 and above- you should upgrade.

Cool... The actual code of the function may vary from version to version, the important thing is to find the function:

function handle_bbcode_img_match

And then add the hook right before the return line...


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

So actually I don't think the code you posted is right, the hook needs to be above the return line.
