Snap Preview Anywhere Beta Test December 29, 2006

Posted by Michael in Websites.
trackback

The Snap Preview Anywhere (“SPA”) feature is being tested by WordPress on about 10% of the sites they host.  Innocent Bystanders is among the test sites.   You will see the feature in action if you pause your cursor on any link that is included in the extensive SPA link library (including linked pictures).  A window pops up to give you a peek at the linked destination, so you can better decide if you want to take the time to go there.   You can read more about the feature here.

WordPress is asking for feedback, so feel free to let me know in the comments what you think, and I’ll pass your views along to the landlord.

Update:  You can test the feature right now by holding your cursor over this link to Dave’s blog for an example of how you can quickly discern if a post merits a closer look.

I think it’s great.

2. BrewFan - December 29, 2006

Very cool.

3. Michael - December 29, 2006

I wish it worked on the blogroll.

4. Sobek - December 29, 2006

I don’t care for it, but may solve a few NSFW problems.

Mr M likes lady in see-thru dress. Continue on, go forward, live long and prosper.

If I send $1 in the mail, can I get on your blogroll?

Who is that woman?

She looks familiar

8. Retired Geezer - December 29, 2006

Mr. M, Michael uses the blogroll as his bookmarks. I’ve tried to get my brother-from-a-different-mama, the Mayor of Mitchieville, on the blogroll before, to no avail.

I never thought of offering a dollar though.

Hey, you never sent *me* a dollar when I added you on my moronblog.

Might I humbly suggest that this blog keep a picture of a scantily clad female on the front page at all times? Judging by what I just did with Dave’s blog, it will result in many more click-throughs.

Comish, really. We don’t surf the nets for chicks, do we?

11. daveintexas - December 29, 2006

uhm… define “we”.

12. kevlarchick - December 29, 2006

I did click on her. She’s somethin.

13. daveintexas - December 29, 2006

Are they working on an “unsnap anywhere” feature?

I’ll bet that one would be popular.

We need something original. I check my inbox for contributions from the IB Wimmens every day, but so far no luck. So, that just leaves the pics I’ve collected from stalking KC, but I’m thinking that could lead to some legal trouble. Plus, the miniblinds detract from the quality of those photos.

15. Lipstick - December 29, 2006

Well Michael, you’ve always got my feet to fall back on.

Plus a photo of me on a horse from far away.

I’ve contributed!

16. Lipstick - December 29, 2006

….but I’m no hotsie KC….or luxuriant-haired Laura….so you’d better keep stalking.

17. daveintexas - December 29, 2006

Hey, you were pretty cute riding that horsey.

18. Michael - December 29, 2006

Plus a photo of me on a horse from far away.

Not so far away that I failed to notice your, erm . . .

*Michael thinks about the next word*

. . . contours!

19. Lipstick - December 29, 2006

Thanks Dave.

And Michael, that was mostly due to the Victoria’s Secret bra. Had to have extra support while trotting, you know.

RG,
I didn’t have to bribe you, you did it out of the goodness of your heart. Consider it charity work.
