They often load ridiculously slow. Does this method help fasten the site speed? Did anyone try?

It’s great that you are giving an idea for those who want to be an event manager. It can also help using Timthumb.php thank you for posting this!

However this did not work for me when i a dded “*timthumb.php” to custom file list all it did was translate the path to timthumb with my cnames for my cdn and not the image path e.g.
http://media6.crowleysmusiccentre.com/wp-content/themes/mojo/sp-framework/timthumb/timthumb.php?src=http://www.crowleysmusiccentre.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/image.jpg
thanks

In this case though, I’d lean towards leaving it as is, and allowing people to add this to their functions.php file or similar as needed, because there’s no set amount of image sizes someone may want to have, plus there’s also the issue of regenerating thumbnails when changing/adding these new sizes.

Thanks for the response. I agree with the open source comments.

I never noticed the Performance settings and will be using it from now on.

add_image_size isn’t only for themes. Its for anyone to use.

Cheer, Justin

It has more flexibility in terms of sizing specifically compared to wp thumbnails.

Like any open source scripts (including WP itself), vulnerabilities can crop up. In the case of TimThumb it is currently deemed safe, the hole you’re referring to was fixed pretty quickly (a long time ago), and we started using TT after this vulnerability was reported/fixed.

add_image_size is something your theme should take care of, but you can opt to use WP Thumbnails tha make use of this function and avoid TimThumb altogether in your Dashboard > Events > Settings > General > Performance Optimization.

Regardig performance, if you use the CDN method above, the performance hit is negligible (in some cases, it’s faster!).
