FFFFound.com Plug-in Developement (5 posts)

    Is there anyone out there willing to help out in creating a WordPress plug-in that can work with FFFFound.com. Basically the plug-in is a sidebar widget that can pull in a random image from either the main image feed or a specific users image feed. It doesn't seem like it should be hard to create. I can help out in anyway. I think this would be a great plu-in that a lot of people would use.

    Yep - I'm looking for something similar:

    - A widget (not a plug in) - so it can be placed in sidebar via widget interface (under Presentation);
    - images to be pulled from image-folder - I now have thumbs (.png) in my portfolio-posts - thumbs are screenshot of the websites we made - click on the thumb and a larger version (.jpg) opens
    - the rotator just displays the thumbs (.png) - by clicking on the image, the post opens

    So, what is needed in the settings:
    - path to the image folder
    - extension of the images (.png in my case) - or perhaps some wildcard (all my thumbs are preceded by 'th-')
    - a list will be populated with all found images in that folder
    - next to each image you enter the postname\path\id - I only need posts of my 'portfolio'-category, so maybe you can display just those posts, so that you can link them to a thumb? (actually, as each post contains the thumb itself, a smart programmer should be able to derive it - but, I will be more than happy to do it myself)
    - maybe some size and speed settings - random or not etc.

    I tried Piclens, but it comes with some drawbacks:
    - images are resized (as they are derived from posts, degrading the pic-qualtiy) - and not using the high quality thumbs that I created;
    - ugly border;
    - not all images are displayed (probably because it looks at the current page with posts - not at all posts in a category);

    Any suggestions? Or is there someone out there, smarter than me, that can make this? I just want that thing - you get the credits, you can do with it whatever you want.

    Look online for a PHP script that does what you want. Open your template for the sidebar and add <?php include("http://www.yoursite.com/path/to/script/you/downloaded.php"); ?>. I'm using this to include random quotes at tylerm.info.

    Thanks Tyler - any suggestions?
