WP and TimThumb

  • # September 25, 2009 at 3:20 am

    Ok, I wrote a code for using custom fields to display images, and im using it to display thumbnails so i have the code grab it and send it threw the TimThumb php image resizing script to make the image smaller for the front page, everything works except the TimThumb, it doesn’t work for me.

    this is the code to grab the img url from the custom field:

    < ?php query_posts('category_name=blog&showposts=5'); if(have_posts()) : while(have_posts()) : the_post(); // check for thumbnail $thumb = get_post_meta($post->ID, ‘Thumbnail’, $single = true);
    // check for thumbnail class
    $thumb_class = get_post_meta($post->ID, ‘Thumbnail Class’, $single = true);
    // check for thumbnail alt text
    $thumb_alt = get_post_meta($post->ID, ‘Thumbnail Alt’, $single = true);

    ” rel=”bookmark” title=”Permanent Link to < ?php the_title_attribute(); ?>“>< ?php the_title(); ?>
    < ?php the_time('M d, Y') ?>

    < ?php the_content('Read more»'); ?>

    < ?php endwhile; ?>

    This is the little bit of code that takes the image url from the custom field and puts it into the timthumb script

    and as you can see here the images never show up

    < ?php echo bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/scripts/timthumb.php?src=/< ?php echo $thumb; ?>&w=100&h=65&zc=1&q=100″
    alt=”< ?php the_title(); ?>” class=”left” width=”100px” height=”65px” />

    But in this theme from Elegant Themes uses the same type of custom field coding and put it threw the timthumb and works fine..
