    but it still does not work in my actual.
    real strange.
    Does it conflict with anything?

    First of all I can't really get it to work. It seems to update the date on the .png file (which I had to upload myself), but nothing happens to the actual image. Also, isn't it awfully slow?

    I've not noticed a slow down on my page, and Beel's instructions worked for me.
    The first time you use it you should see the last 30 days times across it.

    Okay, I feel I've tried everything, but nothing seems to be working. What am I missing here? I got the file in place, the permissions in order, the call is going out from index.php... The image just isn't changing.

    Just to check,
    is this plugin self updating?
    cos after i posted a new post on my test-site, i do not see the change in the image.
    N.B. For testing purposes, i just had 3 posts prior to the new one, so that any change can be easily spotted.

    Is that just a rhetorical statement or are you seeking help? If so, we'll need more info like, for starters, what is the fatal error?

    Well this is the error i'm getting,
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: getposttimes() in c:\domains\chenu.uni.cc\wwwroot\index.php on line 1
    Also it isn't updating the png.

    That sounds like the plugin hasn't been activated.

    I just noticed the error .... is it really on line 1 ?
    Put the call to the plugin way down inside the blog - at the bottom of the content div - if it's not there anyway.

    I have had problems getting the image to update when publishing. I could create the image manually by calling the update-function from some page, but it did not update automatically.
    I found the solution on the plugin developers page. The plugin uses the publish_post action hook, which need a priority to work. Changing this:
    add_action('publish_post', 'updateBlogTimePNG');
    to this:
    add_action('publish_post', 'updateBlogTimePNG', 9);
    in blogtimes.php worked for me.

    I get this error when posting a new entry. See file permissions above.
    PHP Warning: imagepng(): Unable to open '/www/htdocs/wordpress/wp-images/blogtimes.png' for writing in /www/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/blogtimes.php on line 115, referer: http://glovers.hopto.org/wordpress/wp-admin/post.php
    I get this error when I view the site. The permissions seem to be set as instructed. I must be missing something really obvious.

    Many thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction.

    I'm getting a similar (lack of) error. Drop the plugin in place, activate it, drop the PHP code into the start of my template file, and add a new post - no change to the .png file (changed permissions on wp-images to 777 and on the .png file to 666)

    maybe u actually posted a new post and WP generated the image... without making a new post, the image won't get automatically created. right?

    I'm not getting this to work either...
    My image is in /wp/wp-images/blogtimes.png, all of the permissions are fine, the plugin is activated, but it's not showing the updated image on the page.
    My site is at http://www.tim-weston.com and the image is down at the bottom (the big whitespace before the footer). I posted something a few minutes ago, so it should have updated, but it didn't.

    WOW! I followed the instructions to the letter...not sure what is going on, but all of my graphics, pictures have disappeared. I deleted the blogtimes.png and blogtimes.php files and reloaded my header.jpg file and background files which no affect.
    Anyone had this happen to them?
