I've been looking around the world wide web for a solution to setting a Next Gen image as my Featured Image (post_thumbnail) and through some trial and error, came up with this.
Mind you, it's not an end all be all, since it's not conditional, but it's a start. I'll work on coming up with the conditional statement that gives us the ability to either use a standard WP attachment image OR the Next Gen image, but for now:
<?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) : echo '<div id="featured" class="block">'; $thumb = next_gen_get_attachment_image_src(get_post_thumbnail_id(),'full', true);/*wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID), 'large' );*/ $url = $thumb['0']; $width = 960; $height=300; $quality=100; echo '<a href="'.$url.'" class="">'; echo '<img src="'.TIMTHUMB_PATH.'?src=' . $url . '&a=c&q='.$quality.'&w='.$width.'&h='.$height.'" width="'.$width.'" height="'.$height.'" class="" />'; echo '</a>'; echo '</div>'; else : ?> <? endif; ?>
Let me know what you think. Remember, you'll have to have TimThumb installed ;)
