Homepage Thumbnail Preview in Member's Profile

Difficulty: Very Easy


Q. What does it do ??

A. If a user fills in the Homepage field, a linked thumbnail preview is generated and replaced by his Homepage text link.

Q. Do I need this ??

A. Yes.

Q. Does it work in different browsers ??

A. Tested in IE, Firefox and Chrome. Works perfect !!


Template Edit: 1
Member Info Templates/memberinfo_block_contactinfo

PLEASE NOTE:- This is not actually a product but a service by www.shrinktheweb.com. You must register before using this as they provide you with a unique key ID that you have to enter in the code below. Its worth registering !! Its 100% free. As they say, the thumbnails are refreshed monthly.

Begins here:-

1. First register at www.shrinktheweb.com and note Your Access Key ID from STW lobby.

2. Open memberinfo_block_contactinfo template:-

Find and delete this:-


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.



Then find this:-


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.




And add above:-



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


You'll have to enter Your Access Key ID within the IMG tag in the above code.


You may edit the above code according to your requirements like setting the width, height, border color, Size=lg for large and sm for small.


Hope you like this sweet little mod, very simple but really useful and cool. I am sure, you are definitely going to use this..

Pleaseee MARK AS INSTALLED if you find it useful !!

Critical Changes in 1.5:-
1. XHTML valid now.
2. STW has announced changes in URL parameters that would be mandatory soon:-
u -> stwu
Url -> stwUrl

Change in 1.6:-
1. You do not need "Your Secret Access Key" in the URL anymore. It will work with/without it, but removing it is preferred, as now it makes sense of it being "secret". SO, just &stwu=Secret Key has been removed from the code.

this has already been posted here, thanks anyway
But the service of thumbshots.org is lacking in the following way:-
  • They are lacking in browser compatibility as discussed here.
  • I have just applied your thumbshots.org code on my testboard, and its over 15 minutes, my thumbnail isn't updated its still showing this. Shrinktheweb.com takes not more than 1-2 minutes for thumbnail generation:-
  • I find shrinktheweb.com's service to be better than the two after checking/testing them both.

Image quality on STW is also better than thumbshots.org.

Thanks for the code!
