Description

Good Day!

Please update subject guidelines to allow linking to websites that host screenshots (or equivalent imagery).

Specifically, please update the section titled "[When creating links to other resources]https://wordpress.org/support/guidelines/#when-creating-links-to-other-resources" to add the following:

  • The link is to known, safe websites that host screenshots (or equivalent imagery).

Above change will allow the use of screenshots in lieu of entering long-winded narratives to explain a particular issue.

Thank you!
