If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Is it somehow possible to remove the title from the frontpage slider? Hereby I mean the title that pops up when hovering the mouse over.
Do you mean the html title field within an href link? The one that says Slider1 on your website? Please go to media in the backend, and find the image, and you will see it has a title tag that says Slider1 instead of something useful for google to know where the link is going as well as help the blind handicapped use the internet. By removing it, you will know the wrath of Google who demand title tags. I would just put something a bit more useful there but keep it.
How come this is so essential to Google?
If removing it isn’t a good idea, is it then possible not having it shown when hovering the slider?
I have tried using a few hacks listed on forums on how to remove title attributes and nothing seems to work. I’ve tried this a long time before and until now I can’t get it to work. Good luck on finding a snippet that will actually remove the title of images on mouse over. What is the problem with the title anyway? Try to rename an image to something meaningful or relative before uploading them.
Blind people use a device which reads the title tags of href and then talks to the blind person and tells them what is going on. Without the title tag, the device wont be able to tell the blind person what the image is supposed to be, and the blind person will remain.. well.. blind in a sense that the developer made them blind by not including that tag. So to make sure that developers use this tag, Google put a penalty for not using it.
