I have a website with 400+ images. Using a spreadsheet plugin I've been through and manually added
alt text to each of the images.
The problem I have is that the pages are built with a page builder and a lot of the images where added in text blocks using
<img src="https://example.com/image-folder/image-name.jpg"> and therefore haven't dynamically pulled in the
I'm trying to avoid having to go through all of the pages, find the
img code, work out which image it is, look up the
alt text and manually type it, again!
I'm thinking there must be a way to reference the image in the database by the
src, then get the
alt text from the database that way.
I'd like to write a function that sits in the functions file and I can call from the
Something like this
<img src="https://example.com/image-folder/image-name.jpg" alt="<?php echo( get_alt_text() ); ?>">
This way I can just paste in a single bit of text into each image
alt which would save a ton of time.

For example this Wordpress "attachment_url_to_postid" function.
or this "wp_get_attachment_image_src" function
My thinking for the function is:
alttext and pass that back
