I'm busy building my first site and am new to all this! I've read it's advisable to add 'alt text' to images I upload for search engine use. I've worked out how to do this for individual pictures but cannot see how to do it using the picture gallery widget - do I need to or will the 'hoverover' text serve the same purpose?

My site is at

Any other pointers fully appreciated!

Hello Steve,

You can add hover text to the pictures in your picture gallery widget but you cannot add Alt Text to them unfortunately.

To edit the hover text you need to open your picture gallery widget and click on "edit" and then you can click on the text of each image and edit it.

I hope this helps. If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
