Take the last image daughter of a post. To use this plugin you just need to insert one of the following commands in your template:

  • gi_fullsize ();
  • gi_medium ();
  • gi_thumbnail ();

Adding a parameter, it becames in the tag img generated. By default, the plugin will return a string containing the tag of the image, but you can pass the second parameter to true to make the impression of this string.

Updated in version 0.5

Now you have a gi_library () function. It returns all images from yout post - not only the last daughter, where you can pass some parameters like size and type of return you wants.

The sizes of gi_library () are: 'all', 'fullsize', 'medium', 'thumbnail'

Upgraded in version 0.8

Added shortcuts for gi_thumb () and gi_full(). Upgraded for wordpress 2.6 Added width and height in gi_library. Using the native wp_get_attachment_image () function.

Upgraded in version 0.9

Now, gi_fullsize(), gi_full(), gi_medium(), gi_thumbnail() and gi_thumb() recives two parameters.

The first is $print, this param prints the return, use it to shorcur yours call. So, if you wants to print do not use:

<?php echo gi_full(); ?>

But use:

<?php gi_full(1); ?>

The second param says the number of image you want to use. This number is the number of image in galery order. The next code prints the third image in galery on format thumbnail.

<?php gi_thumb(true, 3); ?>

The function gi_library() have shortcuts for thumb and full sizes. Now you can use gi_library('thumb') or gi_library('full') in your templates/scripts.
