Alt Text for Images

I'm trying to make sure my site is ADA compliant. I have added "alt" text in my image embeds using markup but my site template isn't picking them up in every location that the image is shown. What do I need to add to my template to add them? Thanks!

Hi, could you please clarify what type of image embeds you are using?

Generally, if you have an image as part of your template (rather than a post generated from a markdown file), then you'd have to edit the template's HTML code and add the "alt" attribute there.

To edit the template, go to Blog settings → Template (, and click "Edit" on your current template. If there is no "Edit" button, it means you're using a stock template, so you'll have to first "Fork" it, then "Edit" the newly forked copy.
