Description

The syntax of the wiki should support the alt-text and a title-text for an image. The text is helpful if a user hovers the mouse, so it will display the text in a tool-tip. Also, if the user disabled images, or for accessibility.

Maybe it should use the "Optional description" in the Files upload form (if it's an image).

A possible wiki-syntax could be
"My description":!someimage.jpg!

I didn't know that, where do you have that information?

Because it isn't mentioned in the http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/RedmineTextFormatting
or in the Help about text formatting.

It's a standard Textile syntax (see http://redcloth.org/hobix.com/textile/ for examples).
I've update RedmineTextFormatting.

Thank you for the information.

Do Redmine supports all syntax of Textile? Maybe a link to http://redcloth.org/hobix.com/textile/ would be then appropriate?

#7 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang about 6 years ago

It should support most of the syntax. I've changed the link to this one which is more usefull.
