alt attributes

Postby mmm » Mon Jul 06, 2015 1:32 pm

Interspire Email Marketer seems to produce some links to some tracking images without ALT attributes.
This triggers spam filters to assign lower values/block.
Hence, this non-ALT attributing must be prevented from.

How can one avoid any (links to) images without ALT attributes?

The only image that does/can not get an alt tag is the trigger image. I would think that Maborak could give it a default name of x or some other random variable to fix this issue.

It's minor but you are correct that the score is impacted because of this.

Maborak, can you add this feature so that all trigger images get a random string of text as the alt tag? Thank you in advance.

It could even be an empty ALT tag, afaik.
That should make it simpler, as it would only require a non-variable code insert.

Not sure if it can be empty but it would not be hard for Maborak to set it up so that it inserts a random 4-character value so that there is not a footprint if the same ALT attribute is used for each customer.

Sounds like an easy fix so I'm not sure why it has not been implemented.

Just noticed this with Mail-Testser when sending a test campaign so I guess an empty alt attribute is OK??

We found 1 images without alt attribute in your message body
alt attributes provide a textual alternative to your images.
It is a useful fallback for people suffering from sight problems and for cases where your images cannot be displayed.

If you don't want to add an alt attribute, add an empty one: alt=""

Yes, all that was examined before I posted, thanks.

Does anyone know the file where the empty ALT attribute must be inserted?
