A title attribute of an image is normally used to show any text when you hover the mouse over the image. In some cases you may want to remove these title tags from your blog. We can do this by three methods.

  1. Install a WordPress Plugin
  2. Edit function.php and add our own code
  3. Using Javascript

1) Install a WordPress plugin

2) Edit function.php

This is  the other method. Just add the below php code in to your function.php page.


add_filter(‘the_content’, ‘remove_titles’);

function remove_titles($txt) {

// Get all title=”…” tags from the html.
$txtresult= array();
preg_match_all(‘|title=”[^”]*”|U’, $txt, $txtresult);

// Replace all occurances with an empty string.
foreach($txtresult[0] as $img_tag) {
$text = str_replace($img_tag, ”, $txt);

return $txt;

3) Using JavaScript

Another method would be dynamically removing the title attribute after they have been called on the page. Actually title tags are playing a good role in SEO. So if you actually want to remove title tag, then I will recommend this method because this method will only remove the tool tips and the title tags can be seen in html .

Example for using JavaScript:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
$('img[title]').each(function() { $(this).removeAttr('title'); });
