Stu's Quick Pic

A simple plug-in widget to allow the display of a picture from its URL.

  • A simple plug-in widget to allow the display of a picture from its URL. Developed to allow existing webcam files to be displayed on a blog sidebar without actually modifying the file. The title of the displayed widget, the image height and width, alternate text for the image and image URL can be modified on the widget admin page.

    • The image is initialized to my webcam picture of a Shark Oil Barometer which is located in Switzer Canyon in Arizona, USA. The link for that page is http://stu-in-flag.net/barometer.php. But, this can be easily modified to another URL source.
    • I am not a professional programmer. I produced this widget when I couldn't find one that allowed the combination of a URL based image and adjustments to the height and width of the image. So, I am sharing it because I think others would value it. While I would like to hear feedback on how the plugin is functioning for others, I am making no commitment to solving integration issues, providing updates, or any othersort of support that you would expect of a professional. I just don't have the knowledge to do that.
    • I am using this widget on my own blog (http://stu-in-flag.net/blog/) and intend to for the long-term. So, I think it is reasonably safe. There is no error trapping for entering the wrong values in the admin window on the widgets page. You are the error trap. If you enter goofy things, you will get goofy, possibly irritating results. Still, you can just delete it manually and move along.
    • With all those disclaimers, I hope this tool works for you. It was fun learning while writing this tool. I am open to learning more to make it better. Please, let me if you have thoughts, questions or suggestions at


      I'll see what I can do.
