Remember your Thumbnail

I know we are talking asthetics here, but do remember to add a thumbnail to your Wizzley pages. The place to download the image is in the sidebar in edit mode.

It really does help make the pages look more professional when you search through what's available on the site.

Not only aesthetics, AJ. Without a thumbnail we can't feature you on the front pages of Wizzley.

How about making a thumbnail a must to publish.

If there's an image, somewhere on the page, the system will use that as thumbnail.

Perhaps we should require at least one image, before one can publish a page.

Simon? Hans?

Sounds good. In the past, we had the problem with licences and stuff. But I think since pixabay everyone can find suitable images :-) And the new image module allows to enter source and source url

I saw some pages today that did have images but they may have been sales modules so that is why the thumbnail was not picked up?

Probably so, AJ.

Yes, we only pick images from text and images modules.

Which takes us full circle to what I said: Remember your thumbnail Laughing

Thanks for this. I hadn't noticed the sidebar for thumbnail selection.
