svg images

I am planning to make most of my images as svg files going forward. The Txp/Images system doesn’t allow them for some reason. Is there a plugin that allows uploading svg files, or should I just dodge the Txp/Images system and upload svg images manually?

Re: svg images

SVG support has been added to the upcoming 4.9.0 if you can hold off a week or two for the beta?

Sweet! I am not in a rush. I knew it had to come along at some point.

Re: svg images

Hello, I like to work with SVGs. SVG images can be uploaded via the ‘Files’ tab, just like you upload videos there.
However, you must reference them with their name, not with the number given by the database, as have to be done with the images. That’s why you can’t use the ‘Article image’ form field for this.

But SVG support is coming soon:

So it might be best to hold on and then one can indeed use the ‘Article image’ form field

You can also paste the code of the svg in the forms tab, after you create a mediatype in Preferences>Advanced

[svg]
mediatype="image/svg+xml"

You can then call them using an image tag

<img src="<txp:page_url type="theme_path" />/forms/svg/my_svg.svg" alt="My amazing svg" class="my_class" width="50" height="50">

That requires you save the theme / forms to disk, though.

Re: svg images

The issue I have noticed, being new to SVG, is the the alt-text does not display for SVG images when displayed using the <img> tag. (I tried Firefox and Opera). Is there a story here?

What do you expect to happen – or what would you like to happen?

<img src="my-nice-svg.svg" alt="SVG image representing a lotus">

This displays works perfectly – the text from the alt attribute would be read aloud by screen readers or other AT.

Did you mean the title attribute? The text content of which would be displayed as a “tooltip” on mouse-over on devices equipped with a mouse or trackpad.

Re: svg images

In Firefox & Opera, when I hover over an <img> with .png, I see the alt-text. I see nothing for a .svg. Just reporting my experience. As far as I know the HTML5 <img> tag doesn’t have a title attribute.

Re: svg images

I don’t think that is right – and it does not match the behaviour of current Firefox / Safari / Brave. And the title attribute is perfectly valid for <img />. If you need to insert a description or caption for the image, a much better way is the <figure /> and <figcaption /> combo.
