I am having a problem with putting an image into a reusable box and adding an alt tag and the image sizing. Along with the clickable caption/description below the image.
Can anyone help me, can this be done :?:

So, what exactly happens. Describe it in detail. Are you editing a reusable block on your page, or dragging a container, image etc, then saving it as a reusable block? Do you get an error message?

When I converted all my pages to BB2 pages is when I started using the reusable blocks more and more.
So in my haste of doing all of my blocks, I did not do the alt tags. Now I am editing all of the reusable blocks and trying to add the alt tags but am not having any luck. So right now I am editing existing reusable blocks and trying to add the alt. There is no error message, it just doesn't show the alt message when I preview. I have even tried adding them new to a container without any luck. The only way I was able to do it was to load the image and than add the alt tag from that image screen, BUT when I do that I am not able to put a description below the image. So I am at a dead end.

Hi Carol,

Are you using the Image Block? Or are you using code? If using code, it may be best to switch to using the Image Block to add the Alt and Title text and add a caption using the Image Block's toolbar.

Best regards,

Some of what you're saying isn't making sense to me. How exactly are you trying to edit these reusable blocks? Give details (just saying 'not having any luck' doesn't give us the full picture).

I would clear history on your browser or try a different one (I use Firefox and clear it on exit), Reboot your machine, then try it again.

(it may be best to switch to using the Image Block to add the Alt and Title text and add a caption using the Image Block's toolbar.) I will try using the image toolbar, thank you.

Thank you Laura, I used the caption option oin the image toolbar and it works just like I wanted it to.
When I first used the image toolbar I was working with a narrow window that did not show the caption block way over on the right.
But thanks to you I found it and it answered my need.
