OK, I'm hoping you guys can help me. I'm an artist and I want to keep using WP on my site. I had it before, but 2.3 broke the world (because I was using several plugins that were not compatible with it -- my own fault). I took the site down since I was going to redesign it anyway, but the plugin I was using for thumbnail management (customizable post listings) no longer works.
I just need a plugin that will read a directory of images and spit out links to their respective posts via thumbnails (the plugin doesn't have to generate the thumbnails, though that would be nice). I need it to display the thumbnails on the sidebar, sorted by date.
The thing is, I need a lightweight plugin, as opposite to something that will merge WP with a powerful image management application like Gallery - I do not need all those features and I do not need more databases loading up the server either. I just need a few lines of code that will do this one small task. Customizabe post listings did it beautifully, but it looks like it was abandoned. :(
Does anyone know of anything like that? Are there any plugins that will do this for me?
