Featured Images - A MUST for the Feature Board
This week's ActiveRain ZOOM meeting was one of our best yet! We had our fearless leader, Ben Kinney, and one of the members of the development team as guests...or, were we Ben's guests?!
The new format was rolled out last month and Ben & Josiah were eager to hear the member's opinions of the changes. They also heard issues that some of the members are having and answered a lot of great questions for us. Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist wrote a wonderful summary post about the meeting.
The reason for this post is to share that from here forward, our feature board will have a uniform 'look' and that includes the featured image beside every featured post. The 'feature fairies' will only be selecting posts for the feature board that contain a featured image.
How do you add a featured image?
Easy peasy! Simply click on the Featured Image "CHOOSE FILE" button, right below the Title of your post. A window will open for you to select a file from YOUR COMPUTER FILES. Locate and click on the file you wish to use and VOILA! Your featured image is already formatted exactly as AR wants it.
It's so much easier than adding images within your post! If you don't want to use another image within your post, you don't always need one - this one shows up at the top of your post. For short posts, this is ideal if you only have a few minutes to post something. It literally takes only seconds (unlike the main media uploader)!
Give it a whirl! We think you're going to love the featured image feature! Remember, the feature fairies will be looking for featured images in our posts.
