WordPress Plugin: Hungred Image Fit

This plugin is something i build a few months ago but just published out to the public and share with you. This plugin basically do nothing unless there is a need to. Therefore, maintain the current efficiency rate of the website. This plugin helps you guys with large image that are so big when placed on your post that it went over shot your existing layout design. This is not desirable. Hence, a simple plugin is made to solve this problem (again this is a plugin for lazy or precautions people). I implement this plugin on Hungred.com and 1sitedaily.com.

Description

This is a very small and lightweight plugin that automatically adjust your images on your post with a maximum width. This is to eliminate the problem where your images are too large and overlap other parts of your website layout.
Any image that are greater than the maximum width is being adjust according to its ratio aspect. Those images that are smaller than the maximum width is being ignored
On the other hand, resized images also have its tag enhanced to have 'title' and 'alt' attributes for better SEO.

A control panel for adjusting the maximum width size is provided.

For version 0.7 onwards, there is a few new features.

  1. User now can resize post images with specific tag
  2. User can remove resize capability of a particular post by placing "noresize" on the alt attribute of the img tag
  3. User can resize a particular post by placing "resize" on the alt attribute of the img tagΒ for user to have absolute control over resizing of image.
  4. Resize method has changed to an optimum one where resizing will not delay your website due to the waiting time for image detail using PHP getimagesize function.

Here are the control panel of Hungred Image fit. Simple and clear.

  1. I'm getting ready to build a blog for a company that will be uploading photos with their posts. This looks like just what they need to avoid having to resize every photo before using it.

    But what about page load time: will it be shorter than if the original graphic were loaded?

  2. this plugin just tried to play around with the width and height attributes on the tag. It won't help speed up the loading time of the image. Something similar to the upload function in WordPress that allows you to 'resize' according to a given size. This plugin do it automatic instead with a given maximum width. May be i will throw an example just for demonstration πŸ™‚

  3. hai,
    i had this plugin installed number of days and i experienced a bad delay in my site after that. i had to disable today the plugin.
    i like to know weather you have any fix for this.
    tx.

  4. Zamaan, the plugin will NEVER delay your site as the construct of the plugin is VERY VERY simple. Try to test your site for the real bottleneck that you might be facing. Etc. BrokenLink Checker plugin.

  5. Ops, from today i get internal server errors in my website. if i deactivate the plugin only the site works πŸ™
    now i am searching for a old version...

  6. internal server errors? I believe that got to do with something within your hosting server zamaan. Does it occurs every time you active this plugin? If that is the case try deactivate EVERY SINGLE plugin you have and activate this one and try whether the internal error still occurs. If it doesn't i highly doubt it got to do with this plugin my friend.

    Nonetheless, keep me update πŸ™‚

  7. Hai clay,
    first of all thank you for the quick reply as you do always.
    yes, i disabled all the plugins using "UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = '' WHERE option_name = 'active_plugins'" and only activated your plugin and checked. the result is same. "OK

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, [email protected] and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    i am totally depend on this your plugin. pls kindly tell what could be wrong. i am using digitalstatement theme from blogoblog. thanks.

  8. @Zamaan: let me look up into the plugin and modify any problem that might cause you that problem. A new version will be updated to solve your issue. But i can't guarantee you that the problem will be solve since i can't think of anything in the plugin that might cause such an internal error nor does the plugin alter or create any htaccess file. Nonetheless, let me look up and release a new version for you.
