  • This plugin adds the Source Name, Source URL and the option to follow the Source URL link to the media uploaded in WordPress.
  • The three display options of the credits are: Shortcode, Template Tag or let the plugin display the credits automatically before or after the content.

Does IMAGE CREDITS NOFOLLOW make changes to the database?

The plugin doesn’t make any changes to the database, but it adds new META-DATA for the MEDIA you edit. Every time you add a Source Name, Source URL and the option to follow the Source URL, this is added as metadata to the database.

How can I check out if the plugin works for me?

Install and activate. Go to the MEDIA library and edit any image. There should be new fields to introduce: Source Name, Source URL and the option to follow the Source URL link.


You can simply activate, deactivate or delete it in your plugin management section.

Are there any known incompatibilities?

Please use it with WordPress MultiSite at your own risk, as it has not been tested.

Does it work with image galleries?

Unfortunately it doesn’t work with image galleries. Only with media inserted in posts / pages and the thumbnails.

Are you planning to make it work with image galleries?

We normally don’t use image galleries, so maybe in the future we develop this function, but it’s not one of our priorities. Sorry :-).

Do you make use of IMAGE CREDITS NOFOLLOW yourself?

Of course we do. 😉

I tried this plugin and found that I have to choose in the general settings if the credits should be for a photographer, illustrator, song writer or composer. To me it seems a bit narrowsighted to only have one option in the main settings. The problem is that in Swedish we don´t have a directly corresponding term for credits. I would also like to have the credit line close to the image and not below the image caption. Another confusing thing is that you can only see the personal name in the media settings not in connection to the image in the Post or Page. That may confuse new users and content providers. To me this plugin is a bit immature.
