Alt tags for ratings images
    #3804522 - 02/19/05 09:59 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Can you make the first image's alt tag the average rating, rather than the number of ratings?  When using a text browser, ratings appear like so in posts:
Quote:

X General ratings
X General ratings
X General ratings
X General ratings
X General ratings




And when you view the ratings page, you get this:
Quote:

X average X average X average X average X average




So yeah, at least one of the rate images in the post should say the rate average for text browsers :smile:

In a text-based browser (used for speed, among other things, such as avoiding goatse).  Are you perchance messing with it?  Because now only the last rate image on a post has an alt-tag, the rest are alt-less.  Shall I take a screenshot or two?

.. While I'm at it, avatars should probably have an alt-tag of "avatar" or some such :smile:

Yes, I changed this, but I can't find the second example you mentioned.

Ok, "in post", I'm talking about reading a post like so:


As you can see, it just says how many ratings there are, if you want to see what the rating is, you have to follow the link (view ratings) which gives you the following:


I'm saying at least one of the rate images (little shrooms) should display (through the alt tag) the average so people with text browsers don't have to follow the links to see what the rating is :smile:

Ack!  I'm being confusing and need sleep, or you need sleep :tongue:

The goal here is not to make lots of "[ IMG ]"'s come up, in fact, we want to get rid of all of them (thus why avatar's should have an alt tag of "avatar" or some such).  Every image should have an alt tag (it's w3 standards, and is for text browsers and other mediums that it is a standard), even smileys (the alt tag could simply be the text used to make it).

I'm not asking for one alt tag per five shroom images, I'm asking for one of the five shroom images while reading a post to display the average, as the average should be available since it is in the "view ratings" and has to be known to get the correct shroom images to show up.  I recommend the left-most shroom image "in post" have the average, and the rest have the number of ratings, so people can still hold the mouse over the shrooms and see how many there are (if you notice, now, you only get a popup on the right-most shroom image). 

Sorry for confusion.

Ivy, ha!  It has more to do with adherence to web standards than anything :wink:

While you're in there, Anno, you should probably remove that extra height attribute - it's in the trade rating's tags as well.  If nothing else, it will shave off (an admittedly miniscule) amount of bandwidth you're serving, as well as be valid HTML.

... :thumbup: It looks sweet with the dots in between, and you have saved at least 100 characters per page load (adds up to be quite substantial when multiplied by how many page loads you get per day).

Thank you very much :smile:

You can still do it with the right-most mushroom.

However, this is why I suggested filling the rest the same - people probably think it is one image and instinctively go to the middle...  But seriously, check it in a text browser, it looks fucking sweet with the dots in between :cool: 

Plus, without the redundancy, the shroomery is saving even more bandwidth per day!  "general ratings" is 15 characters, times 2 is 30, times 5 is 150 per page load.  After a few thousand page views, that's a little chunk of bandwidth that is nice to be saved.
