I'm sure most are aware of the most recent Timthumb issues. I know they have put a band-aid on the problem, but I really don't care for the script for several reasons. Before I started building my themes I purchased several from various markets. I'm trying to figure out the best method for removing Timthumb and replacing it with something else.
I've successfully replaced it for one theme using the_post_thumbnail, but it was quite a bit of work. I'm just curious if someone knows of a better method. As it stands now, I have to weigh the time it will take using my method vs. how much do I actually like the theme. Can you provide any suggestions or links to proven articles?
