Hello fellow WordPress users and thanks for stopping by!
It’s always important to keep in mind that if you’re writing a blog, it’s because you want others to read it. That means that you have to do everything you can to make your blog a pleasure for your visitors.
Here’s a fast and easy way to do just that:
Inactivate “Snap Shots” on your blog.
Snap shots are those aggravating pop-ups that appear when your visitors hover over links in your posts.
Do you see that kind of thing on the New York Times? Do you see it at Yahoo!, or at the web-site of the American Medical Association? How about on the website of the NFL? No? Well, that’s because these serious websites understand that anything that pops up, makes noise or otherwise “gets in the face” of the visitor is to be avoided like the plague.
I hope that I’m not going to get myself kicked out of the community for suggesting this, as I’m sure that the Snap Shots are a major cash cow for WordPress.com. Nevertheless, this simple modification will greatly improve the User experience for your blog, and that’s always a good thing for everybody.
- Open your Dashboard
- Click on “Design”
- Click on “Extras”
- Uncheck “Enable Snap Shots on this blog”
- Click on “Update extras”
Et voilà ! Now your blog is behaving like the big guys!
