Tried to figure out how the homepage picks the post images and thumbnails. Since there don't seem to be any special custom fields, I assume the theme just takes one of the images embedded in the post? The first one?
Anyway, I embeded one of my Flickr pictures and while it shows fine in the post, it shows a broken image icon on the homepage. The image address of that icon is
and it produces the error:
farm3.static.flickr.com/2137/1111111111_1111111111.jpg not found.
(The real image doesn't have all 1s, I replaced that for privacy here. This link with all the 1s doesn't work, the one it actually complained about in the error does.)
I noticed it does work when I copy the image to my WP uploads folder and link it from there, but it would be nice if I could save that step and use my Flickr pics directly.
Also, is there some documentation as to how this cropper.php works - how it chooses where to crop, how I can control it, whether it crops at all if the image is already the right size, etc.? And what is the right size for the various thumbnails used throughout thr theme? Finally, are these thubnails recreated again and again at every pageview (server killer!!) or are they saved somewhere after the first hit?
