how to add cover images for dev.to feed entries

osninja_io profile image The OpenShift Ninja ・1 min read

Just a heads up: if you want to add nice cover images to the articles you post on dev.to, add a cover_image: entry to that nice little block at the top. For example, the block for this post looks like this:

--------
title: how to add cover images for dev.to feed entries
published: true
description: make sure you read the instructions
tags: blogging, images, personal, whatevers 
cover_image: https://thepracticaldev.s3.amazonaws.com/i/u1x7n8mbvor1nq6tcbk0.jpg
--------
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And then you get a nice picture of a huge black hole at the top of your post, and also when folks are browsing through the feeds of dev.to posts.

Notice you have to respect the ratio of 1000x420 to display a very beautiful cover image (with 1000 pixels x 420 pixels for better resolution).

You actually make it look so easy with your performance but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never comprehend. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it! Aluminium ramen
