    In order to show a text while hovering, please use the title attribute. e.g., (in Rails):

    cl_image_tag("sample.jpg", :title => "This text should be shown when hovering")

    I'm using wordpress.and you're saying I have to input something like the above for every image in the advanced section under Image Title Attribute  Image Title Attribute  

    If I have them on my own server, there is no need for this, the alt just shows up what I've put in.

    So what would it be for wordpress?

    I just added some words to an image in wordpress in the advanced section as stated above and shown here http://femininefusion.net/janis-joplin-quote-soul/ and it does work. But it shows it only on the full size image on my post.  I would like it to show  on the thumbnails as this is where I want them to see the alt words because it's about clicking to view more information which will take them to the post....any ideas on how this is done?

    Can you please share an example of a webpage which contains a non-Cloudinary image that includes the alt attribute (and no title ) and the alt text is shown when hovering over the image?

    Also, please note that the title attribute should be set per URL, and as the full-sized image has a different URL than the thumbnail one, they should both include title . Note that the full-sized image includes the title parameter while the thumbnail image doesn't.

    I'm not sure of all this...my thumbnails are actually 300x300 and the image in the post is at it's largest 400x400.  I want the alt to show in the smaller image which is found in the search, category and tag cloud listing.  I want to have the alt words "click to view more about this lady" on each image except the full image.

    Also why are all the images also on my website backend as well as on cloudinary..  You can see I'm not too familiar with all the ins and outs of combining wordpress and cloudinary..

    Thank you for your prompt responses.  I really appreciate it.
