Hi there,

since there’s the new and really needed new Notification function – great thx envato – I’ve built a small autoimage fo your items where you’re able to let your customers know about the new function

you just have to use an image tag with a src containing the ItemId (found in the URL of your item) to include in your item description

i.e. for the item “AJAX Contact Form” with the ID 50846 you have to link to http://envato.homac.at/a2gn50846.jpg and you’ll get
– the used thumbnail will always be the current one

the syntax is

http://envato.homac.at/a2gn[#itemId].jpg

where [#itemId] is the ID of your item

the width for the use of the image in the forum is not really ideal, but it fits exact in the item details block

don’t know if it’s usefull for some authors

currently the images won’t be cached, but if there are some authors using this img I’ll cache them and refresh it maybe once a day

let me know if you like to use it or if you have any other suggestions

best wishes
mac

Oh, I like that, thats quite cool. what language did you make this in PHP? and how long did it take. I’ve wanted to do dynamic based images before but just never got how they quite work.

thx, B)

a hint for the ratings would be a nice thing too, you’re right

yes, it’s PHP and took an hour approx. (incl. the graphic sources, because initially I was intented to make the graphics for my items each per hand)
