To improve user experience, I want to make changes to the image meta fields in the Media Library:

Image Meta Fields

As demonstrated above, I want to change the Caption field to Source and remove the Alt Text and Description field.

How can I achieve this?


I found this great tutorial for adding/filtering fields. However, do you think it is ideal remove core functionality? I suggest hiding the fields with css that you do not want displayed, and creating a field for Source rather than modifying it. The reason for this is so that other devs or plugins can utilize the core functionality with your plugin or theme without a lot of workaround.

  • Yes, I would like to remove those fields (if no better solution, then a display:none CSS trick could do) and I would like to change Caption to Source because this field has already been used as such by my users (and we have a library of 1000s of images...). – Christine Cooper Feb 10 '14 at 16:56
