View Full Version : Latest thumb as a file?
01-12-2006, 07:42 AM
The latest thmub addon is nice, and usefull, but I was wondering if there was a way to have a non-dynamic URL for that thumb? i.e. the script genarates a file with a name like "latestthumb.jpg" so that linking from other sites doesn't run the php script for each page print...
I'm in no way a php programmer, so modifying the script myself or writing one from scratch is rather out of the question...
Any suggestion or ideas are welcome!

yes, that's what I'm using for now, and it works (I'm even using to display my latest thumb as my avatar on some forums... :) ), but it runs the index.php script every time the thumb is called for from another page...
Maybe it's just wishful thinking to have it done automatically, and that I have to do it manually, copy the front page thumb to a static location so that others can pick it up...

btw the addon I introduced should work 'cause you should ahve PHP in the site that runs PP and it only needs that. there was a better and similar addon by tinyblob for that as well.
