Images in blog app: improvements
It would be great if you could improve the following thhings asap:
1. In the blog overview and in the timeline:
display a larger image that has the widthe of almost the whole time timeline and put the headline and a short description beneath the image (for example liek on facebook.) Looks way better.
2. During the process of creating a blogpost:
How it is: When I choose a teaser image that already exists, I do not have the possibility to crop it. That means that the teaser image may also be in landscape or upright format, even if the standard is square. So it seems that Coyo saves the edited image.
How it should be: Whenever I choose an existing image or when I uplaod a new image, I always need to crop it. That means that Coyo needs to save the source image that is just cropped for different usages.
3. I would like to have the possibility (optional), that the teaser image is automatically shown on the top of the Rich Text Editor / text of the blogpost in full width. That would avoid to implement the image again.
we had a look at blog images in general and our ideas do match most of your suggestions. In general, we also think that it is quite cumbersome to have two different teaser images with two different formats. So our idea would be to reduce this to one format that works for all blog articles – regardless whether rendered in a widget, a list of articles or the article itself.
Thanks, I am glad you like it! :)
looks way better! :)
I can present some conceptional screens to you. We are planning on replacing the 2 teaser images to only 1 which works for the widgets, the blog overview and also the blog articles as such.
This image will have a fixed ratio of 21:9. For the migration we will support both formats - otherwise old teasers would be stretched or cropped. So, after the roll out of this improvement the old teaser images would still be displayed but it won't be possible to still select two different teaser images but one.
Hey Tobias, sorry I don't have a timeline for the new blog teaser images, yet. But I'll keep you posted!

Can you please tell us when this is going to be available?
Blog images should not be cropped in the widget.
Thanks Sven, sounds good!
..as shown at the summit. The size of the widget image is not good and the widget itself looks badly and fragmented.
yes. current placeholder looks ugly
also don't show deleted blog entries from someone on the timeline.
