My little wish list to that great plugin (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I like this customizable plugin. I changed some things because I think it would improve performance and would be more comfortable.

    1. In get_img() I set the size of the image from "full" to "thumbnail" (or delete "full" to use the function's default value "thumbnail"). I don't want to use the original image sizes as thumbnails.

    2. I delete the call of thimthumb and changed the img source from "timthumb.php?src={$path}&h={$tbHeight}&w={$tbWidth}" just to "$path". The browser resizes the image with the values of the attributes "width" and "height".

    3. I would wish to have the option to change the path to the default thumbnail. (I changed it in the code.)

    4. In the widget after activating "Display post thumbnail" no fields for the image size appear immediately. They appear after saving the widget's setting. It would be more comfortable to see the fields after checking the box.

    Just my 2 cents to this fine plugin.

    Hi Hinjiriyo,

    1. In get_img() I set the size of the image from "full" to "thumbnail" (or delete "full" to use the function's default value "thumbnail"). I don't want to use the original image sizes as thumbnails.

    The thumbnail functionality will change in the near future. WordPress introduced the WP Image Editor class in 3.5.0 and it works really nice. Timthumb will be gone, of course, as it won't be needed anymore. Also, I use full-size images because the thumbnail size set by the theme is not guaranteed to be big enough to create custom thumbnails on-the-fly. However, I might add some way to manage this as well from wp-admin in the future if considered necessary.

    2. I delete the call of thimthumb and changed the img source from "timthumb.php?src={$path}&h={$tbHeight}&w={$tbWidth}" just to "$path". The browser resizes the image with the values of the attributes "width" and "height".

    See my response above ^^

    3. I would wish to have the option to change the path to the default thumbnail. (I changed it in the code.)

    I've been thinking about this myself from quite some time, too. I'm pretty sure it'll make it into a future release.

    4. In the widget after activating "Display post thumbnail" no fields for the image size appear immediately. They appear after saving the widget's setting. It would be more comfortable to see the fields after checking the box.

    I agree, it sucks I know hehe. Been wanting to "fix" it for a long time. I'll add it to my TODO list.

    Thank you for your comments!

    Hey Martin,

    Most of these features has been added on 2.3.4, so thank you for your suggestions! The only thing missing is number 4, which I plan to do on the next release.

    Thank you for the suggestions!
