WordPress Snap


WordPress Snap is a simple shortcode for display a thumbnail from any website. This plugin uses the service to generate a website preview thumbnail.

The orignal shortcode created by Valentin Brandt on WordPress Geekeries.

  • Use pointers in WordPress 3.3
  • Quicktag Button in HTML Editor
  • CSS3 Effect (View Installation tab)


  • Easy 🙂 - Add your thumbnail.
  • WordPress Geekeries Snap


It is very easy. Upload plugin to the plugins directory and activate.

[snap url=”” alt=”My image” w=”400″ h=”300″] to display a thumbnail of any website

With link, use this shortcode
[snap url=”” alt=”My image” w=”400″ h=”300″ link=”on” title=”My Title”]

To change the attribute class, specify your class.
[snap url=”” alt=”My image” w=”400″ h=”300″ link=”on” title=”My Title” class=”my_class”]

For a great CSS3 effect. Add this snippet on your CSS files.

img.snap {
    padding: 0!important;
    border: 1px solid #ccc!important;
    transition:.2s ease-in-out; -webkit-transition:.2s ease-in-out; -moz-transition:.2s ease-in-out;
    -webkit-box-shadow:2px 5px 15px #bbb; -moz-box-shadow:2px 5px 15px #bbb; box-shadow:2px 5px 15px #bbb;
a img.snap:hover  {
    -webkit-box-shadow:0px 0px 10px #bbb; -moz-box-shadow:0px 0px 10px #bbb; box-shadow:0px 0px 10px #bbb;
a img.snap:active  {
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 0px 0px #bbb; -moz-box-shadow:0px 0px 0px #bbb; box-shadow:0px 0px 0px #bbb;
