Blog post formatting guidelines
So I just got a notice about issues with the diaspora Yatra blog post, so here are some basic rules for writing blog posts.
- Please do not use external assets. Whoever published that Yatra blog post hotlinked the images from poddery.com. Please avoid this (I guess I don't have to talk about downtimes and privacy issues). We have the "assets management system" in the admin panel, please use it to upload your images. If you have any issues, ping me.
- Care about the layout... Someone once started using
<div><img src="..." alt="..." title="..."></div>for images. Please don't. If you want to have full-width images, please use
<p><img src="..." alt="..." title="..."></p>. Otherwise you will break or responsive layout and the page looks horrible.
- Check external links. The first image in the yatra post got a link, which is a 404... Bad.
I'd also like to keep the amount of embedded videos as low as possible. If possible, link it. It feels a bit bad to embed YouTube stuff in our blog.
I guess we should try to keep the blogs quality as high as possible, we do have quite a lot of traffic there... However, thanks for your work!
Edit: Mixed up good/bad image embeds.
