Apps like Mugshotbot make this easy: Copy and paste the following in your  field to have a social-media image generated for your article (if your article is missing a photo).{article_url}

Article image quality

By default, the images you upload on your posts go through a resizing mechanism that shrinks them to 1000 pixels wide.

This is done for three reasons:

  • Allows you to upload images with large widths without having to resize them
  • Save space in our servers by optimizing images
  • Make your blog load faster

However, the resizing process does take away the sharpness of your images. This results in a lower quality, which is not noticeable to most readers. Nonetheless, it is present.

Turning the "Article image quality" to "On", blogstatic will upload your original image without putting it through the resizing process. Resulting in your intended quality.

Once this option is turned to "On", you can upload images up to 1500px in width because blogstatic will not resize them. Having photos bigger than that will slow down your website in slower internet connections.

Code highlighting

Highlight the code that appears in your posts.

Note: Because of how this plugin works, you can only view your highlighted code in your published post and not in the editor area.

Word counter

Learn the number of words in your posts as you're writing them.
