Recommended Posts

Hello, I am wanting to add alt text to images within a gallery - NOT to an image block. Is there any way to acheive this?

You can alter it by javascript but I afraid it will not help SEO since the alt will be changed after page load with this method

Hello - apologies for my lack of correct language here - I am new to this. I have added a gallery section with a 'basic grid'. It is a section I'm sure as it is part of a parent page...

Thanks for you time 🙂

You can add a description to each image in the Gallery Section. The description will be used as the alt-text.
