View Full Version : Not yet another thumbnail question...
09-08-2006, 03:31 PM
i'm looking for a possibility to insert a thumbnail of the latest PP-image into wordpress. But the displayed thumbnail should be smaller than the thumbnails displayed in pixelpost (i hope you understand what the heck i mean :) )...that means that there should exist a possibility to set the size of the displayed thumbnail. is it possible?

It's certainly possible, the easiest way to do it would be to use Raminia's latest thumbnail addon and stick the image in your wordpress template with the height and width set to the dimensions you want. (i.e. instead of using
<img src='http://www.your_photoblog.com/index.php?showthumb=latest&thumbtag=image' />
<img src='http://www.your_photoblog.com/index.php?showthumb=latest&thumbtag=image' width="100" height="100"/>
This doesn't reduce the file size of the thumbnails, but will constrain the dimensions so they fit in your wordpress template. It's not an ideal solution by any means, but it is simple. Otherwise you would need an addon that generates a separate thumbnail for your wordpress blog.
Note, that if your thumbnails are not uniform dimensions, or you try to use dimensions that are larger than the original, the thumbnails will look very bad in your wordpress page.
