    Cool, thank you. The installation and translation was easy. Can I recreate the image without posting a blog entry?

    Thanks, Beel.
    I created it and CHMOD blogtimes.png 666. Also CHMOD wp-images directory 766 and active this plugin, but there still has no picture at bottom.

    I'm having a similar problem to most others.
    I uploaded the plugin to the wp-content/plugins. Activated the plugin.
    Created a blank PNG file, uploaded it to wp-images, set the permissions of the folder to 777, and the blogtimes.png to 666.
    I added this code to my index. php file
    <?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <img src="http://www.dianaleroi.com/wp/wp-images/blogtimes.png" alt="Blogtimes image" />
    <?php getPostTimes(); ?>
    </div>

    All I get is a blank white image, the image does not appear to be updating. I made sure the plugin was directed to the right file location.
    Any ideas???

    Lol, I got this to work finally.
    Guys, you are calling the wrong function in your index.php file.
    Instead of calling:
    <?php getPostTimes(); ?> - which BTW is a function call in the plug-in, but will not generate any images, just provide your posts times.
    Call:
    <?php updateBlogTimePNG();?>
    that is the main function of the plug-in. You need to call that function in your index file to actually have it generate the image.
    I placed the function call in right before my image src line, and the two I placed in front of the content div close call of my template. But I think that you could place that function call anywhere in your template. Also, after I called the function, it automatically generated the image. I did not had to make any posts.
    So to recap:
    1. Place the blogtimes.php in your plugins directory
    2. CHMOD your wp-images to 777
    3. Create and upload an png file, named blogtimes.png
    4. CHMOD blogtimes.png to 666

    Isn't this possible to use with a background color? Right now it comes as white as the background, can that be changed so it matches the background color of my index.php page?
    i tried uploading an image (png file) with my background color (blue) but then when the blogtimes.png appeared it was still had the white background.
    Any ideas, let me know.

    Hmmm, it was working fine for me, but since last night, the image has been totally blank, as if I've not written a thing lately (definitely not the case).
    And I have posted since the thing went blank... no change. No, I haven't even been to the plugins page lately, no change in permissions, no accidental deletions, nothing. It's showing all update times, then it isn't showing any.
    Is there anything to be done? Turning it off and then back on, perhaps?

    Patti - I can see it. Just under the header :)

    Well, podz, the thing is, that isn't my blogtimes.png. I swiped somebody else's, as a shortcut to the dread task of making my own initial image (my old one, i long since tossed out).
    But the sucker won't update, even though I chmoded it to 777.
    My blogroll doesn't show updates, either. It goes on and off at the same time too. (newly updated should have a "new!" thing by their titles)

    This is a strange plugin... took me a while to get it the first time (my posts are in this thread), the second time was a breeze, the 3rd time I gave up and this last time was easy too.
    This last time - create a file consisting of one space in Notepad.
    Save as 'blogtimes.png'
    Upload and chmod to 777
    Make a test post, delete
    Make a test post, delete
    It appeared.
    Had to force a refresh (ctrl-f5) when altering the colours though.
    (It is on my page, it's just incognito)

    you need to call the function that creates the image. It is:
    <?php updateBlogTimePNG();?>
    You can place this func call right before the image line. So it will look like this:
    <?php updateBlogTimePNG();?>
    <img src="http://white-pebble.net/wp-images/blogtimes.png" alt="Blogtimes image" />

    Yup, that did it. I wasn't calling the function.

    For me, I had to chmod my wp-images folder to 767 or 777 so that the contents were viewable... that last bit is the execute bit, and if I'm not mistaken, that determines whether the files in a dir are even readable. Chmodding wp-images (or any directory) to 766 prevents access to its contents, whereas 755 would let you see the contents, but not write to them, as you need to for this plugin.

    I have a copy paul,

    http://www.village-idiot.org/file-downloads/

    If you happen to get redirected to the main site after clicking that just click the file downloads link on the left. (I dont allow access to that area from remote referers, if I remember correctly). The filename is wp-blogtimes.zip
