I'm in the middle of developing a Plugin that lists (fairly specific) stock for sale.
So far other than the post thumbnail support added in 2.9 I haven't been able to find any WordPress functions or included libraries / classes to do the thumbnailing - the plugin needs to show multiple thumbnails for each item both in admin and on the 'stock page'.
This plugin is basically a port of a system I've already developed, which uses phpThumb for the thumbnailing - if I can't find a better way of doing it then I'll just include the class in my plugin
So basically, my question is, is there a better way of doing this? I'd rather use something internal to or distributed with WordPress than have to package the Plugin with phpThumb
Thanks in advance for any comments
