Hi there :-)

On Pixabay, we've just released a WordPress plugin that let's you quickly pick and insert free images from Pixabay with just a click. Currently, there are about 75.000 quality public domain images available that don't require any form of attribution. It's all Creative Commons CC0.

Learn more about this new plugin in our blog post Smile

If you have any suggestions or feedback, let us know please :)

Cheers,

Simon

Wow, great idea - I'm out for a while getting my car MOT'd but when I return I shall certainly instal the Pixabay plugin - should save a lot of time and effort and make the pictures readily available at the time of need. Thanks Simon et al - you're the greatest!

Brenda - it is not available from the WP Plugins menu until tomorrow (27th March). If you want to use it today you will need to follow the 'Learn more' link (see Simon's post above), and follow those instructions.

Something new to learn - that always thrills me. Yell

Is this going to be similar to Zemanta?  I like the idea of quickly adding photos to a blog post.

It's like...

When superman realized he could fly

When I made my first paycheck 100% online

When Simon met Garfunkel

When wonderwoman figured out how to find the invisible plane

When hubpages banned me throwing me onto wizzley's good graces

... or in the words of the song....

...This is Fkn A-w-e-s-o-m! (no they really say it like that on the air in the states)

that's 50 dollars for a t-shirt.....

(if you don't get that refrence click here)

This is gonna be epic Simon.... does this thing have a resizer too? haha 

 

edit: crap for some reason I thought it was a browser plugin that allowd you to insert images into wizzley wizzles in one click... owell, but wp is awesome still :)

Ah, Jerrico!

Some of us have a hitch in the git-along when it comes to tech!  I still own a "dumb phone."

I do try my best to learn new things, but my "best" is very, very slow.

Anyway, a very helpful post!  I believe I got into WordPress at the right time!

I have a dumb phone too Arlene!  I have learned a LOT of new things and continue to do so Jerrico, but it's not as easy for some of us "older" folk.  I am usually a year or two behind everyone else.

Still,... I do it - high five Arlene...!

Hey,

thanks for your feedback - much appreciated :-))

@Brenda: The plugin is currently being reviewed by WordPress. A standard process for including it on their repository. It should be available from within WordPress very soon. It could get published any time soon.

@Dustytoes: I'll take a look at Zemanta right away. I've heard of this plugin, but haven't seen it, yet. So I can't tell if it's similar.

@Jerrico: We'll just need the time to include such a functionality into Wizzley. The idea has been around here for quite some time already :-) Couldn't see you YouTube video, though: it's blocked for Germany due to some rather stupid copyright stuff called GEMA Undecided.

The only way to get a hitch is practice, nobody is truly a natural at anything, they just worked on it in some other way than an obvious one and since they can't see how they did it or that it seemed effortless, it seems like some people are born lucky, but luck is just being prepared and acting on opportunities- often it boils down to focus and interest- what you do those to, will manifest...

They say anything is possible with practice- anything. Wordpress is becoming a staple in my site building experience, it's fun, managed, easy to use (to some degree but you get it eventually), and with the right theme or skin to start with you can quickly build a phenomenal site (I'm not up for building from scratch, no time, no energy for that- although I'm making headway haha... unfortunately the theme I'm using is older but newer and the new model uses a whole new child theme layout concept (called skins) so nothing is available yet... 

In the mean time I'm trying to build mock sites to play with features, figure out wordpress completely (75% there) and get to the degree where I can drop a site quickly from my past templates etc... there is a way to save your layout tweaks as sort of modules like we use here (in my theme not raw wp)- you build it, tell it what it is, what to load, how to load it, then you can save that as a module of a sort and plug it in instantly in the future or move it to another site and plug it in, tweak settings etc...... Convenient...

The more I learn about WP the more I like it- I have had the wp bible for 5 years now never cracked it open... I did read it a bit in the store... I thought I'd better play around so I know what the hell they are tech speaking about in the book- they don't hold back on tech talk and I don't know much about CSS /style sheets and PHP... and don't care to learn (well CSS may be important)... I can tell you Arlene you may want to brush up on some CSS as it's what gives you god control over your aesthetics and some functions (as well as fonts, sizes, etc...)- you don't need it but eventually when your skills are good you will want to know how, I think.

My method of hitting harder topics for me is to just read them like a story, don't try to grasp anything the first read- get CSS for dummies (I'm planning to)... I find that exposure often helps build folders for your mind to quantify things, little by little you start to get it, the spotlight gets bigger and before you know it you get this... 

and Arlene, I just got my first smart phone and it's an amazing way to raise your productivity, I never knew so much could be monitored, notifications made, reminders, all that, it's like what used to be scattered everywhere now exists on my phone, I spent 40% less time on the actual computer, I can do anything from that smart device :) but I can't seem to log into wizzley to edit, see stats, etc... seems to be a read only site for the phone? 

Good Luck! It's an intriguing lesson wordpress is...

Hey Jerrico, I've placed "login link" on our todo list. Although there is no mobile optimized layout for stats and editing, it could still be useful.

Thanks Simon, I wasn't that worried about it I'm new to the smart phone era so I was just curious if it was possible and I just didn't know how. I like the idea of pushing images directly into a module from pixabay, that definitely has uses :). I'm going to test out the plugin on WP, that is a fantastic setup, just injects it from the web into your wp images gallery... genius!
