i use this code to show post's thumbnail in my site but this code cant show the title Attribute of the thumbnails.

how can i add Title Attribute to WordPress thumbnails?

<?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) {
 } else {?>
<img alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>" src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/img/thumbnail.png"/>
<?php }?>

you can see my site with this url : http://rokesh.ir


You can do that because you can add all the attributes you need:

the_post_thumbnail( 'large', array( 'title' => get_the_title() ) ); 

Please read on in the Function Reference of the_post_thumbnail.

As per the Codex entry for the_post_thumbnail(), you can pass an attributes array as a parameter:

<?php the_post_thumbnail( $size, $attr ); ?>

So you would just need to define the array; here's the Codex example, modified to include the title attribute:

$post_thumbnail_attr = array(
    'src'   => $src,
    'class' => "attachment-$size",
    'alt'   => 'alt here',
    'title' => 'title here',

...which you could then pass to the_post_thumbnail():

the_post_thumbnail( 'large', $post_thumbnail_attr );
