Picture Alternative text
« on: January 27, 2013, 15:54:29 pm »

I just realize that the alternative text entered in VM are not visible when browsing
Anyone know why?

I use Joomla 2.5.3 and VM 2.0.7

You can see an exemple here :

Works OK for me with the current VirtueMart version, 2.0.12a - the alt text as is set in the Image Alt-Text field on the Product Images tab shows OK. Try an alt-text without accents.

Note that  VM versions below 2.0.10 are considered as unsecure, 2.0.7 was a development/testing version, not for use on a live site. Test versions have odd numbers, eg 2.0.5, 2.0.7, 2.0.9 etc Stable versions have even numbers, 2.0.12, 2.0.18 etc
