Today, as part of my Daredevil blogging series, I am taking a look at a free WordPress plugin, WP Screenshot.
Do you have a WordPress blog or e-commerce business website? This plugin is a handy tool for showing a screenshot of any web page. Perhaps, you were recently mentioned in a local newspaper or industry website and you would like to share it with your readers. Or, you need a screenshot to help you explain a concept to your readers. Use WP Screenshot to capture that page and include it in your blog or business website.
After downloading the plugin from the WordPress website,
or from the developer’s website,
simply add the plugin to your WordPress install. Next, add the shortcode to your page or blog post. The shortcode includes the size of the screenshot and the web address. I super-duper customized my page by adding a link to the shortcode. Click on any screenshot on this page and you will be linked to the webpage in the screenshot. Nifty!
Unfortunately, this plugin will not work for what I am trying to accomplish on the Looking At Glass blog.
I think that it didn’t capture the whole page because of the fluid nature of the page. Never fear, I will continue my search for just the right plugin addition.
That Aha! Moment
Trying this plugin and finding my way through the new WordPress website, plugins, and e-commerce, I had an Aha!moment. Why not write about technology and how to use it in your glass business? Hopefully, it will be interesting and educational and won’t bore you to death.
I must admit, that this new area of exploration has given me a new sense of purpose. Just what I needed. Next week, I will write a blog post about glass and then one more blog post about some form of technology for your glass blog and/or your e-commerce website.
If you have any ideas, questions, or products that you think might be interesting to cover in future blog posts, just send me an email or leave me a comment and I will be happy to consider your recommendations.
