wp-screenshots plugin 2008/01/22
Ever wanted Wordpress to display small screenshots of pages you're linking to like the del.icio.us homepage? Neither have I but a friend wanted it and I wanted to build a Wordpress plugin, so here it is.
wp-screenshots takes the URL of a del.icio.us RSS feed as input and gives back a
<ul> containing thumbnails from the unofficial Snap API.
Installation is as easy as running
svn co http://svn.rcrowley.org/svn/wp-screenshots/ ./ in your
wp-content/plugins/ directory. You can then use the PHP function
screenshots() anywhere in your templates. As a bonus, if you setup
wp-screenshots.php to run as a cronjob, it'll understand what's up and just hit the proper image URLs to make sure Snap's cache is primed for your page views.
