Featured Images

A feature of WordPress that not too many Glow Bloggers use at the moment is the Featured Image.

Features images can be added to posts and will be used by the blogs theme, either to display on the post and or to provide navigation.

for example in TwentyFourteen, the home page grid or slider is provided by posts with featured images. For example:

Featured images will also be picked up by twitter if you post a link to a blog. Like this:

They are also shown if you paste the link to the blog into another post and on the LA home pages of Glow blogs.

Yammer Embed

To embed a Glow O365 yammer feed in a Glow Blog you just need to paste in the url to the feed.

Visit the Glow Yammer Group you want to embed, copy the URL from the Address bar and paste it into the post or page editor. Visitors will only see the feed if they are logged into Yammer, if they are not logged in they will see a link to do so.


 

Here is a Gif showing how I embedded the feed above Click to see full-sized:
