When adding an image to a page or content element (using FAL), the checkboxes next to the meta data inputs (title, alternative text and description) are checked by default. I would like to uncheck them by default, is there any way to do this?
I think having them unchecked and the image inheriting the "global" meta data by default, only to be overridden once the inputs are actually filled in would result in a better user experience.

Are you sure, you're having this on 6.1 and not 6.2?


Updated by Wouter Beeftink almost 8 years ago

Yup, 6.1.5 to be precise. And they're checked by default. Is there any configuration regarding this setting?

We have to check how this is currently handled on 6.2 as well.

This is resolved in 6.2

The problem is that https://review.typo3.org/21931 has not yet been backported to 6.1 and 6.0.

This is still happening partially with extension like advanced frontend edit: whenever an image is inserted, metadata is checked, causing the extension to do strange things. Upon manual unchecking of metadata, the image displays properly. see https://forge.typo3.org/issues/64179

So you confirm that this is not happening without EXT:feeditadvanced? Thus, the behaviour there is wrong and should be fixed in there. We won't fix that for 6.1 and 6.0, so if you still have this problem with v7, please let me know directly () so I can recheck. For the time being I will close this issue.
