Hey guys—when uploading a theme, what do you do with the 590×300 preview image?? There’s a place in the form for Theme Preview, but that’s for the zip file of preview images the user sees when they click the “Screenshots” button. The 590×300 image is the one that pops up when you hover over the thumbnail.
I’ve checked the docs over and over and see nothing about this. I seem to remember there was a special field in the upload form for it, but that’s no longer there. Obviously things have changed, but they never updated the docs.
Can anyone throw me a bone?
Oh, and while I’m at it, there used to be docs on adding a text file to the Theme Preview zip file to add descriptions to your images. Now, those docs have disappeared, too. Anybody remember the format/protocol for that?
Hi Scott. Yeah, that’s a weird usability on uploading form. Include your main preview of the file (590×300) along with the rest of screenshots in that zip. Number them like 01_, 02_ … and put the main preview on first place, call it something like 01_preview_590×300.jpg. Reviewer will setup that image as your file main image.
Also, text description for each image is no longer required, but you can include if you want.
Hope this helps.
