    Hi,

    I would like to make my homepage slideshow title an H1 header. How can I do this?

    Also, the slideshow images ALT text are not appearing. How can I make alt text for slideshow images work?

    You can see the homepage slideshow here: http://www.stlouisunionroofing.com/wp/

    And another instance of the slideshow on a page without alt text here: http://www.stlouisunionroofing.com/wp/st-louis-roofing/

    Thanks!

    Hi alexweintraub,

    Looking at the page now the headline text appears to be set as H1.

    For the alt text, you can go to your wordpress Media area and set the various alt/title text for each image there. You can also do this in the dialog box that appears when you first are uploading and setting images in the slideshow.

    Regards,

    Devin

    Hi Devin,

    I did set the alt text in the media area, and that is why I think there might be some conflict somewhere because it is not appearing on the frontend.

    Also, when I “inspect element” on Google Chrome, I see the slideshow headline as H1, but when I look at the source code it does not seem to be wrapped in <h1> </h1>. I also checked with a SEO crawling tool to look for H1s and it did not label it as H1. I found this to be weird.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hey Alex,

    I don’t know of any other method to get the H1 element into the slideshow other than how you have it but it should be ok from what I an tell.

    For the images, try putting the alt text into the title on the individual image.

    Regards,

    Hi Devin,

    I tried putting alt text into the title of the individual image, and the alt text still does not appear on the front-end. You can see a link here: http://www.stlouisunionroofing.com/wp/st-louis-roofing/safety/

    Thanks,

    Hey Alex,

    Its there in the code for that image:

    <img src="http://www.stlouisunionroofing.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/st-louis-roofing-safety.png" title="St. Louis Roofing Safety" alt="" data-imgw="990" data-imgh="400" style="left: 0px; -webkit-perspective: 1000;">

    This is straight from the source looking at your site.

    Regards,

    Devin

    Right, the title is appearing, but the alt text is empty. I want the alt text to be populated, but as you posted it is blank alt=””

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hey!

    Choices uses the “Description” field for the alt text.

    Best regards,

    Peter
