Timthumb options breaks Facebook page widgets (6 posts)

    Hi, I just updated to the latest version of contextual related posts and I noticed that my FaceBook page widgets all stopped working. Disabling the new timthumb feature fixed the problem but I just wanted to let you know it does this. Maybe it's just my theme. I'm using Karma theme from True Themes.

    Thanks

    Thanks Shawn. Unfortunately, being a paid theme, I am not in a position to test this.

    I'll see if any other users also face this issue with other themes.
    On a personal note, I prefer using the iframe versions of Facebook widgets to prevent clashes

    Thanks for the tip Ajay. I think I'll try switching to the iframe version too.

    Hi Ajay,

    Yes, switching to iframe did alleviate the problem. Just out of curiosity, what is the difference between using the timthumb feature and leaving it off?

    Thanks.

    The only change is the img url is modified to be called from timthumb.php if there are no post thumbnails already defined.

    I find the clash very strange because timthumb is called independently from WordPress.

    I couldn't find any documentation anywhere about a clash either. Unless it is something that is being generated by the theme.
