    Gallery Macro with Alt Text per image

    Out of the box the Gallery macro uses the file name of the image as the alt text... is there any way you can add a repeatable textbox to add in meaningful alt tags/descriptions for each image?

    Thanks

    Hi Marcio,

    Thanks for this... I am not sure this is the solution I am after.

    What I think would be best would be simply a text field for each image selected.

    I have been exploring some options using document types as you can add in multiple properties to each, but then this makes the content structure quite messy and I like the idea of a macro as it doesn't add anything to the content tree.

    Thanks

    I understood what you want. You can create a media type with the property you want.

    Hi Marcio,

    Thanks for this - I will have a look and see how I get on.

    I have also been thinking about this in another scenario and the original way I was thinking would have be able to achieve this as well.

    Imagine you wanted to include logos of sponsors and along with their logo you wanted to link the image to the company's website.

    For easy use by the content editor using a macros allows them to insert wherever they like in the RTE and allows the developer to develop the template of the image with the anchor tag and alt within a row and col-sm-3 for example.

    The content editor would just select the image and have a couple of textboxes on the parameters when using the macro.

    I think this would give a massive amount of functionality for multiple scenarios.

    Maybe one for a development. I will let you know how I get on with creating custom media types.

    Thanks

    Another alternative would be to use Stacked Content. You create a razor view and access the properties as IPublishedContent.
