Community Post Resources, Guidelines & Helpful Information
Article images are important and good quality images increase the chance of us sharing your content with our 1.5+ million readers.
Best Featured Image Sizes: It’s important that all featured images be in landscape format. We recommend featured images be at least 800×450 pixels. Featured images should represent the general message you are conveying in the article, like a cover photo.
Helpful Information When Posting
- All article submissions will require you to upload a feature image, it will not let you submit for approval unless you upload a feature image.
- All articles must have a assigned category. Right now, your only choice is ‘Community’.
- You can only save an article as a draft after you have uploaded a feature image & assigned a category. If one or both of these are not done, the platform won’t let you save a post as a draft.
- You need to save your article as a draft before you can preview it.
