Not a bug  Image alt tags not showing


Well-known member
I'm working on a mod, and noticed that the image alt tags do not seem to be working on the frontpage.I disabled all other mods, and still experience the same behaviour.

The same thing applies to the XenForo forums frontpage. If you check the source of the page, user-avatars are supposed to have an alt-tag showing the username of the user when you hover over the picture, but this is not the case.

Tested under both FF and IE 8.

In layman's terms:
alt text is alternate text that displays when the image doesn't load. To get a tooltip on hover, use the title attribute :)
