Image Question (5 posts)

    I want to post images of my other websites on my main site. I know there is a way to have a thumbnail image of a website (say website A) on another website (say website B). I know that the image can update whenever the website updates. I have no idea how to do this. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    If I were you I would implement an iframe method for this. It's the simplest way IMHO.

    Good luck!

  3. If you just link to the image on the other site, you can do that too.

    That is, on WebSiteB.com, you have the image http://websiteB.com/screenshot.jpg

    Then on WebSiteA.com, you link BACK <img src="http://websiteB.com/screenshot.jpg" />

    Done.

    That would work too, but it would leave significant functionality out, such as captions, image information, etc.
    However, if you don't need any of those things, then Ipsentu's solution would be preferable and simpler.
    Cheers!

  5. Well you could also use the media insert external URL function built into the editor, and add in captions, image information, etc.

    I'd never use iFrames unless I have.
