Better Image Credits

This plugin adds credits, link and license fields to media uploads and offer several
options to display image credits on your posts and pages. You can either:

  • Use the [[image-credit]] shortcode. Optional attributes are sepsep,, beforebefore,, afterafterand
    and templatetemplate` (use curly brackets instead of square brackets for placeholders).
  • Use the the_image_credits()the_image_credits()template tag. Optional parameters are template tag. Optional parameters are sepsep,,
    beforebefore,, afterafterand and templatetemplate`.
  • Let the plugin automatically display the credits for you, before or after the
    content or overlaid above each image.
  • Use the widget to display the credits in the footer or the sidebars.

See the settings page to choose how you display the credits, including the HTML
used to build them.

This plugin is a fork of the Image Credits plugin
by Adam Capriola. It is 100%
compatible, if you are already using the Image Credit plugin just replace it
with this one and it will work about the same way, except you will have more control.

This plugin follows the standard WordPress installation
method
:

  1. Upload the better-image-creditsbetter-image-creditsfolder to the folder to the /wp-content/plugins//wp-content/plugins/` directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to the plugin’s settings page to configure the plugin.
