It’s been a busy few weeks for our Online Editor, with upgrades being made on a regular basis. Today, we’ve just rolled out the latest new feature which lets you select the thumbnail image displayed alongside your article after it is published on a site in our network.
Previously, we paired thumbnail images according to your article’s tags as best as possible. Now you can decide which thumbnail to display.
You’ll now see a section of the Online Editor devoted to thumbnail selection. This thumbnail selection tool gives you relevant image options based on the content and tags of your article :
Click on “Find Images” to scan your article. In a few second, a row of thumbnail suggestions will appear below the button. To select an image, simply click on it. The selected image appears in the box to the far left.
To see more thumbnail options, click on “Find More Images” to scan your article again.
If you decide to save a draft of your article, your thumbnail selection will be saved as well. You can change it again before you submit your article for publication.
When you’re ready, submit your article. Once it’s been published, you’ll see your selected thumbnail appear next to the title and description of your article where it’s listed on the site of publication.
