ShrinkTheWeb (STW) Website Previews Plugin

This plugin accesses the ShrinkTheWeb API to automatically replace special tags in posts with website screenshots, where desired.

This plugin allows any WordPress user to easily add thumbnail previews of websites right in the content of their posts using a simple [stwthumb]http://www.yourwebsite.com[/stwthumb] format. Loads of examples are available within the plugin documentation (you'll see it when you activate the plugin).

The plugin requires a free or paid account from the thumbnail provider service ShrinkTheWeb.com. No purchase is required to use the plugin or the free service.

Other Cool Features

  • Supports caching screenshots locally.
  • Option to enable mouseover previews (you see a screenshot of a link if a website visitor hovers the mouse over any external links on the site).
  • Option for capturing inside pages (rather than just the homepage of a website).
  • Plenty of examples in the plugin documentation
  • Plugin automatically shows you which features are available based on your account type.
  • Custom thumbnail image quality.
  • Alt and Title attributes support via shortcodes.
  • Custom filename option support via shortcode for SEO purposes.

Supported STW PRO features

  • Full length image captures (PRO upgrade feature)
  • Custom thumbnail sizes in addition to the standard STW thumbnails
  • Custom Browser Resolution (PRO upgrade feature)
