WP Smart Image

WP Smart Image is deprecated. Please change to WP Smart Image II.

WP Smart Image works with custom fields?

No. Using custom fields to show associated images is a wrong method. Yes, it is relatively famous, but is wrong. WordPress has a very advanced ways to control post's images. However, saying is not the same than do it, because many times it is some difficult to achieve tha we want in this area. WP Smart Images simply makes this work a quite more easy to you.

WP Smart Image adds many data in my DB?

Noup. This plugins uses all existing post data you have been entered through WordPress Editor. Only creates a little field in options table to save your settings.

How can I settings my images to be shown?

  • Upload the images through your edition panel (required for database file association).
  • In the Gallery section drag the image you want to show to the first position, then it will be shown, even if you don't use it in the content.
  • That's it.

Hey, I can't see the widget in my editor!

Just activate the checkbox for option "Activate editor box" through Settings page. Save your settings.

This new widget disables my previous settings?

Absolutely not. Your old settings remains intacts.

Can I customize the tag for better control of my layout?

Yes. Please read the first step guide of WP Smart Image

Where I must to place the tag?

You should place the tag into the loop (see screenshot #3 for a graphic example)

I can place the parameters in an unordered way?

Yes, you can combine parameters without an specific order. Logically some parameters may not appear depending of your settings. For example, a "rel" attribute will not shown in an unlinked image, because "rel" is a property of links. In cases like this, if you set wrong parameters the plugin simply ignore them and works anyway.

All parameters are right to all situations?

You must to read the parameter's table to setting your combo correctly. If you have a Stric DTD site and if you activate a "target _blank", of course you'll ruin your standard. If you add a fixed ID's to several images or links, you are proceeding in a wrong way.

Otherwise, if you are trying to implement some javascript/ajax toy defining "rel" or "id" parameters , you are in a good way to achieve what you want, depending of your intentions.
