WP Screenshot


Insert screenshots in your post and pages using a simple shortcode.

  • [screenshot width=200]www.wordpress.org[/screenshot]

Will show a screenshot of wordpress.org (200px width).
This plugin uses mshots from WordPress.

It’s a very handy plugin, and you can use it on your portfolio page, webdirectory etc.

idea is great, but in fact does not work | Идея – отлично, реализация – “неуд.”

I was need a screenshot creating engine to serve meta tags like meta property=”og:title”, meta property=”og:description”, meta property=”og:image”, etc. I tried to use mini.s-shot.ru, but it is paid service and has a lot of restrictions on free plan. But I was surprised with “WP Screenshot” plugin! Works fast & stable. Thank you Lars!

Mi first grade was 5 stars, and the review title was “Probbaly the best screenshot plugin”. But…
I use a shortcode – <?php echo do_shortcode(‘[screenshot width=968]www.site.com’.$_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’].'[/screenshot]’) ?> in header.php. It worked fine for several minutes and than broke.
I descreased the grade because the screenshots does not work. For example, any random link (https://s.wordpress.com/mshots/v1/https%3A%2F%2Fwordpress.org%2F?w=200) returns a “403 Forbidden” error. The error remains with the different image width.
Пожалуй, лучший плагин для быстрого и беспроблемного создания скриншотов. Искал решение, чтобы в коде страниц моего сайта работали теги вида meta property=”og:title”, meta property=”og:description”, meta property=”og:image” и т.д. Нашёл (http://live-code.ru/page/delaem-skrinshot-sajta-php-skript). Пробовал сервис mini.s-shot.ru, но он платный, а проектов у нас много. Аналогов в рунете не нашёл. А тут – всё работает “из коробки”, причём очень быстро даже с шириной скрина под 1000 пикс. Естественно, чтобы не злоупотреблять нагрузкой на бесплатный плагин, на своих сайтах буду использовать сохранение скриншотов на сервер и проверку (см. ссылку выше), есть ли файл там, прежде чем сгенерировать плагином новый. Отличный плагин! Автору респект!

Обновлено чуть позже. Сначала оценил плагин на 5, и свой отзыв назвал “Пожалуй, лучший плагин для скриншотов”. Но… снизил оценку, т.к. скриншоты перестали делаться (прошло 10 минут с начала использования плагина). Идём по прямой ссылке на картинку (например, https://s.wordpress.com/mshots/v1/https%3A%2F%2Fwordpress.org%2F?w=200) и видим ошибку 403 Forbidden. Эх, а я уже обрадовался((

It works!

It’s hard to look for a website snapshot plugin that actually works. It appears they are less likely to be supported as most people don’t have a need for them. However, my website has a website directory and I run multiple websites. I tried several plugins to display my websites on my main website, but so far, this is the best plugin that I found. It’s old, but it still works! Even on the latest version of WordPress. The plugin is using WordPress’ very own website preview capability – This plugin simply uses that feature and simplifies it with a shortcode that you can paste on your page.

Lars is a great developer. I wish he’d make more plugins.
