Teaser Maker

Create one or more pages of "teasers". Teasers are like WordPress Posts - except that they generally point to content on some external site

    Once you've installed Teaser Maker, you can launch it (from the WordPress Admin Section), by clicking the "Teaser Maker Std vX.Y.Z" link on the left menu.

    The "Std" version of Teaser Maker It allows you to create a single page of teasers (though that page may contain an unlimited number of teasers).

    To start adding/editing teasers, just click "Teasers".

    The "Add Teaser" screen/form is pretty simple and straightforward. With help notes beside each field to guide you.

    Just enter the required information; then press "Submit". Or press "Cancel" to return to the "Manage Teasers" screen.

    With most teasers you'll just copy/paste the following info. from the external (or internal) page the teaser points to:-

    • The page/posts URL into the "Original URL" field.

    • teaser-maker-standard screenshot 4

      The page/posts TITLE into the "Title" field.

      Either your own description of the page/post - or perhaps the page/posts first (introductory) paragraph of text - into the "Text" field.

      The URL of any (optional) teaser image you want to display (into the "Original Image URL" field).

    • teaser-maker-standard screenshot 7

      You can obviously "hot-link" to an image from the page/post the teaser points to. But this ISN'T generally a good idea (since hot-linking to content of other people's sites is generally frowned upon on the Internet). So a better solution is probably to copy the image into you're own site's Media Library. And serve it from there.
