A Bigger, Bolder Recommended Content Footer

addthis-jumbo-recommended-content-footer

Big, beautiful photos have become a huge trend across the Web recently. If your website uses this type of visual format in your content, you’ll want a way to showcase those images in your widgets.

Most recommended content units focus on showing multiple articles, scaling your images into tiny thumbnails. That’s why we created the Jumbo Recommended Content Footer for Pro users.

The Jumbo Content Footer adds one beautiful full-width image to the bottom of your page with the title overlayed.

To get the images to look spectacular, make sure you have open graph tags set in place. The images don’t even have to be that large to look amazing. We’ve tested the footer with images as small as 400px wide and they still look great!

This is just another way to use our Recommended Content tools to show the right content at the right time to each of your visitors. These recommendations are based on both popularity and the context of the article that the person is viewing. Pro members also get an added layer of behavioral and interest data that boosts the performance of these tools by 50%. That’s in addition to exclusive access to all of our Pro sharing, following, and recommended content tools in the Tool Gallery.

Not a Pro yet? You can upgrade in a matter of minutes and immediately receive access to exclusive widgets including the new Jumbo Recommended Content Footer.

Not ready to go Pro yet? That’s OK. In addition to this new Pro tool, we have a few free Recommended Content tools to keep visitors glued to your site.

  • Hey Dave, I noticed a new option in the setting for this tool: “container DIV”. What kind of stuff might that allow you to do other than being able to limit the sizing? You guys must have had some things in mind to include that so just curious….. might inspire me!

    Hey Dan,
    If you want the content to appear within a page, you can specify a div id for it to attach to. Then the footer should append to the bottom of that div.
    Thanks!

  • Ohhhh I see. That’s very Interesting. So I could get this to appear at the bottom of posts if I wanted to. Thanks Dave!

  • This looks amazing, thanks for the update!

    Hi there,
    when we implement this on our site, the heading does not appear, but just a left aligned: <… (which has the alt text of the headline) – any advice?

  • Sounds like you might have some CSS interfering. Can you send us an email with your URL so we can check it out? help@addthis.com

  • rorysturdy

    Ok, I’ve emailed you now – have checked through all the CSS, can’t find any issue – the HTML appears to be only this ‘<…' – thanks!

  • If I migrate to Pro, does the Addthis branding still appear on the footer like in the image above?

  • Our logo does appear on all our tools, just as you see on our blog here. But let us know if you’d like to see something different in the future.

    Sounds like some thing better!!!!!
