FAQ

Why was this plugin created?

Many themes require a lot of work when inputting images to make them look good. This plugin was developed to make that process much easier for the end user. But, at the same time, it needed to be flexible enough to handle anything.

How does it pull images?
  1. Looks for an image by custom field.
  2. If image does not find, check for post image (WordPress 2.9+ feature).
  3. If no image is found again, it will find image attached to the post.
  4. If attempt is not successful, it will add default image to the post. (You must set default image) .
What is Short Circuit Speedy Logic?

You have noticed that plugin by default will make four steps attempt to find image, but you can make it speedy by changing the default behavior of Short Circuit Speedy Logic. It will increase the speed dramatically. For example, When you are very much sure that image will be found from attachment only, than you can tell the plugin to find it from attachment first and than for other options, OR attachment only.

How do I add it to my theme?

There are several methods, but in general, you would use this call:

<?php
if( function_exists( "chip_get_image" ) ):
$chip_image = chip_get_image();
?>
<a href="<?php echo $chip_image['posturl']; ?>" title="<?php echo $chip_image['alt']; ?>"><img src="<?php echo $chip_image['imageurl']; ?>" alt="<?php echo $chip_image['alt']; ?>" width="150" height="150" /></a>
<?php
endif;
?>
