The last few days we have been working on improving the speed if our EP Hashimage plugin. Today, we have released the result, a plugin that loads 70-80% faster when loading from the cache.
Today we’ve added a new feature to our EP Hashimage WordPress plugin.
You can now (from version 3) choose which networks you want to include in your search for images with a specific hashtag.
For example – if you want to print images tagged with #cat but only from the instagram network. That is now possible.
This has been on our todo list for a while, but since we only develop and maintain our plugins between projects it sometimes take a while before new features are added.
We hope you’ll find our plugin even more useful with this new feature.
As usual, download the plugin from the WordPress plugin directory, or update it via your plugin manager on your WordPress site.
This week two of our most popular WordPress plugins has been updated with new features.
EP Social Widget have been updated with more social networks to use, some after requests from our users. Check out the plugin here.
EP Hashimage have been updated with a new option to select how you open an image when clicking on the thumbnail. You can now choose between lightbox or open the original source. Check out the plugin here.
Sweden Social Web Camp is currently taking place on the island of Tjärö, Sweden. The entire social media elite (except for me höh) is there. To keep up with what they’re doing, i hereby showcase our WordPress plugin EP HashImage.
Below we’re displaying images from the hashtag SSWC, by scraping twitpic, instagram, yfrog, plixi, flickr, pic.twitter.com.
From the start we always felt that we needed to do something about the slow loading of the hashimage plugin. Today we have updated it with the option to use async loading, letting all the heavy work to be done after initial page load. See the settings page for this new option.
In this update we have also integrated support for pic.twitter.com and images in the lightbox are no longer cropper and cut, say hallo to the whole image scaled down.
As usual, you find this amazing plugin in the WordPress Plugin Directory and please leave a comment if you have any suggestions or just like the plugin.
The new latest version is 2.3.0.
During summer last year we published a dirty site for displaying images from a certain Twitter hashtag. In august the same year we got the question to make it a WordPress plugin. Said and done, we made a plugin a few hours later. Now, it’s updated with some new features and released at WordPress plugin directory.
The news in the code are:
- Shortcode for easy use directly in your post or page content.
- Timthumb resizing, so you don’t have to load large images every time.
- Displaying clicked images in a lightbox with Slimbox 2.
- Admin settings page for thumbnails and lightbox image sizes.
We hope you enjoy this plugin.
