I use Divi and I am wondering if my featured images for blog posts are supposed to appear on phones? I use a blog slider and I don't see the images on my phone.

i suspect divi is like elementor and has a setup for mobile to keep the speed high ...
phil1944 is the member i would get in touch with as a long term divi user...
but as the others have said - there will be an option to show th esame images - i personally woud go for a lower resolution with a smaller file size...and have the filename xxxfeatmob.webp or jpg...and add that....

Thanks for that!

no worries - hope he can help ...

May be there's an option with the slider setting for mobile that need to be ticked. Or try clear the cache and see what happens.

It is definitely a setting I will have to double check.

I am using Ultimate Wordpress Auction Plugin and having trouble figuring out the registration pages or how members can login.

have you been through the forum for this plugin

https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/ultimate-auction/

in the general settings page for it you can goto auctions tab and set a custom login page or allow users to log in via the standard wordpress login for new users...
to allow the standard login you will need to tick the 'anyone can register ' under settings>>general settings in the site sidebar...( not the auction settings)

Thanks for the review. Yes I have read all of it. I am not sure if I understand it correctly or have done it properly,

Not me, but I am interested to see, who, if any, are, Jared!

I wrote a blog on AI and the reaction has been mixed.

The biggest question or concern is being genuine and then it's whether or not the internet considers the content du

Hi Jared,

Google can ABSOLUTELY detect if the content is written by AI, and there are many tools available to detect content generated from ChatGPT. Google is far ahead of the curve and has been developing tools for many years to detect AI generated content, so do NOT add AI content to your website if you are wanting to get ranked in Google or the other major Search Engines.

I don't want to come off as sarcastic or arrogant here but my question is directly about the content creation tool here...

If it doesn't detect any errors wouldn't I be safe?

SiteContent here in Wealthy Affiliate is a writing tool and it does not detect AI generated content, although it does detect COPIED or plagiarized content when you publish to your website. We do a duplicate content check to ensure that the content you are publishing on your site is unique.

Thank you for clarifying Carson!

the tests carried out by sitecontent do not include any fingerprinting for AI, so no you won't be safe jsut publishing...
you need to find another tool that looks for ai fingerprints and if it cannot detect one then maybe it is safer...
the only true test is from google....
i have not tried search console to detect ai errors, but it may be worth trying it on a test site...
and the other thing with ai content is - does it bring anything new to the table... if it does then good...as google is looking for new relevant content ot rank -if it is just respinning old content then google has seen it and may not bother with it...
ai is getting better, chatgpt is good - but limited ( it's knowledge stops in 2021...) and it just churns out similar content to everybody for similar questions....
so it collates information in a formal way - i would not use this without rewriting it in my style on my site....
so to answer your question i refer you back to my first statement...there are no ai detection tools within wa so you are publishing blind if you rely on the wa tools to detect it...

just tried this one with a bit of chatgpt text and it say rewrite it to make sure it doesn't look like ai...

I would stay away from AI-generated content. I tried them some time ago and realized the content did not come out as mine. This made me re-write the content all over. What is worse is that correcting the content disrupts your thought process, and you end up using more time than if you had written the content yourself from start to finish.

There’s plenty of AI software out there that makes pretty solid articles that are perfectly fine to publish. It creates it on the spot, it’s not like it pulls it from other content, so it’s not plagiarized. But what I’ve seen from others who use AI is that using AI isn’t the best start to finish copywriter. It can be good for pieces of your content, maybe an intro, a conclusion, a paragraph here or there within the body, etc.. but you need to inject yourself and your personality into the content.

Honestly the best content that converts is content written from your perspective by you with feeling and emotion about the topic.

The content creator isn't the one to worry about. The Google algorithm is what you need to worry about, and that will detect it in a heartbeat. I know you are looking for ways to make the process easier, having to work less. That's not an acceptable shortcut.

Oh yeah, and don't fall for any of the "100 articles for $500" scams either. They are pure garbage written by non-native speakers and you'll spend all your time rewriting them.

Hi - it's not a question of it being duplicate or plagiarised.

I have been experimenting with the hot new kid on the block, ChatGPT, and the content it produces will certainly pass all checks for plagiarism.

However, AI-produced content is currently against Google's guidelines, and their most recent algorithm specifically stated that they expected posts to be "written for humans, by humans."

And ChatGPT apparently intends to add watermarks to any content it produces.

The watermarks won't be visible to you or your readers, but Google will be able to see them and, therefore, won't rank the post highly.

I suspect other AI programs will follow this lead and add watermarks.

Well said Diane - AI generated content is predictable and it's easy to detect. Google has been detecting AI content for years and they are well ahead of the latest AI push with ChatGPT.

I use Divi. I don't understand ratios exactly, I am just wondering what everybody generally uses for a pixel size. Example 1000 x 1000?

Hey Jared,

According to hubspot... it is 1080 pixels... with an explanation shown in the screen print below... but scrolling below the featured snippet... I found Elegant Themes' guide stating... "With the Extra theme, ET support recommends the featured image size should be 948 x 557".

You don't need to worry about their aspect ratio, as long as you adhere to their recommended pixel size.

Hope you find this helpful.

1200 x 900 px landscaped
900 x 1200 px portraited.
