New LGF Pages Feature: Attach a ‘Meta Image’ to Your Post

Get meta
LGF • Views: 14,511

Our free high-powered blogging system for registered users has a new feature today! To make sharing your LGF Pages on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ more interesting and appealing, we now let you upload an image (called the “Meta Image” because you don’t actually see it in the post here at LGF) that will be automatically recognized by sharing services when anyone tweets a link to your Page. Here’s what a meta image looks like in an embedded tweet, for a video I posted yesterday:

Pretty cool, eh? To upload an image from your computer for the meta image, all you have to do is drag and drop the image file onto the “Upload Meta Image” button in the LGF Pages editing window. On mobile devices, when you tap the button it prompts you for an image from your camera library.

Here’s what the new Meta Image button looks like in Mac OS:

In the screenshot above, the meta image has already been uploaded, so you see a blue link with a check box for it. If you click that link, the image pops up for viewing.

Note that the LGF Pages editing window automagically picks a meta image on some sites like YouTube or Vimeo, or if you include an image in your post, but you can change it to something else if you want.

If there’s already a meta image attached to the post and you decide you don’t want one after all, just uncheck the box before submitting the post.
