Hello,

I’ve got a problem with Timthumb. I think many of you work with it, so someone already might had the same problem.

On my portfolio page where larger images (e.g. 1200×800) are uploaded, the content under the picture (the comment form) is loading faster than the image. Take a look: http://s1.directupload.net/file/d/3017/du4u2lm9_png.htm

Of course, when the image is already in the cache, there’s no problem. I’ve already tried a modified timthumb version ( http://www.dollarshower.com/timthumb-and-wordpress-blog-performance/ ) but the problem still exists.

thank you

Yesterday I integrated timthumb in my whole theme because I liked the advantages and now I should undo it again? Many themes use timthumb, isn’t there a better solution like loading the content after the image is loaded?

Exactly, with the introduction of post-thumbnails and add_image_size TimThumb is obsolete. I don’t know why authors still use it. And then there’s Justin Tadlock’s Get The Image plugin, which makes adding images even easier.

But add_image_size creates every size for EVERY image, even if it’s never needed. And there are not so much cropping options

TimThumb is not allowed in themes submitted to WordPress.org/.com and should not be allowed on ThemeForest either.
