How about SEO on images?

The images on the website and webshop are added from teh database. For seo purposes it is important to have;

1. A clear filename of the image and 2. Have an alt tag for the image

I don't see how i can manage this on the websitebuilder module. As SEO is very important these days. Anyone a opinion or sultion?



@Erwin, I've built a custom module for adding multiple product images to the product view page that includes ALT tag functionality (still work in progress).

You can find the project here: github.com/OdooCommunityWidgets/website_multi_image

Regardless of whether you want to use the module or not I believe you can add this functionality with a simple module and adding a t-att-alt="" to your images. In a similar manner I think you can also add a t-att-title="" to your images for image title.

Are you running on a local instance, or SaaS/Odoo.com Online?

We are going to run local and not saas. Ok, we can try to create a module for alt and title. Strange it is not implemented by default. A website without good SEO (and images are a part of that) is not good. But what about file names. I read that a good file name is also important. Especially for the webshop images of the products. What is your opinion on that?

Hello Erwin,

The new editor have this option, it has been merged in the master branch.
