Has anyone found a way to place UDVs into alt tags on links and images? I know that UDVs can be placed in the <title> element now, but the method doesn't seem to extend to tags within links and images. I tried adding <udv_name> to my tags but they just came out as <udv_name> in the output. I suppose I could maintain a copy of all UDVs in a separate list and dynamically replace <udv_name> placeholders in the output with their intended values (via jQuery), but this seems to be an unnecessary faff. Is there a better way to do it?
I just found out today about placing images in UDVs (there's a post about it on Colum's site) but I'm thinking in more general terms about the placement of UDVs in attributes, and that goes beyond just images.
Let's say I have a UDV that I want to place in the title attribute of a hyperlink, so as to provide a little more info on mouseover – I can't seem to do that right now. If anyone has a workaround for this apparent limitation, I'd be glad to hear it.
This is not possible. And I don’t have a workaround for that at this moment.
