Static Profile Image Urls for Twitter.

Serve Twitter profile images from your WordPress blog.

Requires PHP 5

This code can be used with WordPress or as a standalone caching application.

Example Twitter profile image link:

<img src=’http://{my wordpress blog}/?spiurl_user={Twitter Username}’ alt=” />

Other WordPress plugin authors can check for the existence of this plugin and use the same cache.

Example for Plugin Authors:

if(function_exists(‘spi_profile_image_get’)) {
echo ‘<img src=”‘.get_option(‘home’).’/?spiurl_user=ev” alt=”Ev” />’;

Changes in Version 1.05

  • Added options to turn off the domain check and redirect to image files.


There are two options in the file. Edit /plugins/spiurl/spiurl.php

$spiurl_domaincheck = ‘Y’;
$spiurl_redirect = ‘N’;

Turn off (‘N’) $spiurl_domaincheck if you want to test SPIURL.

Turn on (‘Y’) $spiurl_redirect if your web server isn’t serving the image.


  1. Upload spiurl.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Create wp-content/plugins/spiurl/cache and make it writable.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
