In the Block Editor, I get the attached message at a number of places after I have completed the article and switched to Classic Editor (to add the Alt text and Title to images) and re-switched back to Block Editor.

Any idea what it is and how should I resolve it?

It could possibly have something to do with spaces which I have added, but I'm not sure.

Thanks.

By the way, I managed to sort out the issue on which the original question was based. Just CLICK the three dots on the right and SELECT the lower option of the two that appear.

(I forgot what it says exactly, but I'm not gonna switch to Classic Editor and back, to find out what it was :P)

Avoid clicking on either RESOLVE or CONVERT TO HTML. It complicates things big time.

I've had that with some affiliate links. Just click on Convert to HTML and it should be fine.

Since we are at the issue of images in Block Editor, may I also know what used to be those dashes that Kyle taught us to add in the title of images. I don't see those dashes anywhere now in the WordPress tutorials.

In ALT TEXT, the dashes are not put. That I know. But, are the dashes to be put in the TITLE TEXT of images or not?

I have not heard that you have to put dashes in the Title Text. The Title Text field is only a text and not the same as a file name which is to be stored in a certain format.

Why did I think dashes have to go in the Title text? I am quite sure that in one of the tutorials, Kyle had typed it in with dashes. Maybe that's how it was done earlier.

But I understand that it's not required now. Just plain text.
Thanks so much.

Interesting. I have been here over 10 years and I don't ever remember having to put dashes in the Title Text field.

Hey Aparna,

There's a way to resolve having to switch back and forth from the Block Editor to the Classic Editor that I talked about in my WA blog here: Then, simply make it a habit to add the ALT text at the same time you are adding your images to your website. This way, you won't need to ever switch back and forth to add your ALT text again.

Hope you find this helpful.

That is such good advice and I shall follow that from now on. It's such a pain to add Alt text and Title later.
Thank u Trish.

Just stick with block, it's far better than classic.

Totally agree Geoffrey.

The problem is that within Block Editor, if you want to add the alt text and title later, it's a bit of a longish process. You have to go to Replace image.

switching between the two will cause errors
leave it in one mode
cannot images have the info added in the editor

just checked and the alt text is avaialable and the title is under the advanced part - so you don't need to jump between modes and cause errors

Oh really, I missed out on the title being under advanced.
Will check. Thanks Phil
