I’m assuming you haven’t validated your email.

Try checking your email that you used to sign up with codepen and there should be an email from codepen asking you to confirm that you have access to that email address

i’ve just downloaded the Web Page thumbnailer i’m trying to get a thumbnail for all my projects to put it in my Personal Porfolio that i’m making . here’s an example of what i’m talking about : https://codepen.io/freeCodeCamp/full/zNBOYG
i did even tried to use online wbesite (thumbnail makers) instead but it’s still not allowing me

thumbs my email is already validated look at this picture everytime i try to get a thumbnail it keep telling me this

Hey @issamath, don’t know if you know this or not. Codepen creates large and small screen shots of pens that can be used in your portfolio.

thanks but nothing is showing up in that link, it says “page not found”

Well you have to replace ‘userName’ with your codepen username and ‘penName’ with the pen you want to see

where do i replace it i really have no idea ? i’m sorry for asking so many questions

In the URL’s I sent. For instance, to see the small thumbnail. The URL I sent is;

Glad I was able to help you.
What I need to do is revamp how I put those URL’s into a post to make it a bit clearer.

indeed, yeah it would be great if you do that !

Okay @issamath, you’re on the hook. :slightly_smiling_face:
How about if I was to post something like this for the next user who asks a similar question to yours. Would this be better?

Good Job Roma, yeah you made it look pretty clear that way , exept i have one more question for you :wink: how do i get ride of that little annoying 'select" thing up on the left side ?

You can comment the script out in codepen, get your clean screenshot and then uncomment the script.
