Hey Guys, I have one question for you, maybe it sounds stupid but anyway.
Is there away to encode the featured images of wordpress posts? I mean I can store in a php var the url of a Featured image of a posts, but how can I encode this image. I’ve tried to using this:
$img_url = the Featured image url;
$encode_image = base64_encode($image_url);
and them I use this:

You don’t need to encode the image URL; you need to encode the image itself (the file). Read about [`file_get_contents`](http://php.net/file_get_contents).
As a side note, however, this is Not A Great Idea unless the images are *tiny* (icon-sized, and even then it depends). Doing this with normal-sized images would make your page insanely heavy, and -since the images are inline in the markup- would block page rendering until they were done being downloaded.June 4, 2013 at 8:26 am #137609

Well, live project or not, heavy is heavy. As I said, it *does* have its applications. Did you get it figured out?July 1, 2013 at 6:41 am #141122
