any one help me. thanks in advance.


You'd be better off using the inbuilt Post Thumbnails, which were introduced in WordPress 2.9 - these are easier to use than custom fields and have things like sizing built in.

Once you've enabled Post Thumbnails, you can set their default size using set_post_thumbnail_size and then use them in your theme with the_post_thumbnail

  • ok, in that case timthumb is probably your best bet. You had some errors in the HTML markup posted above, I've described them in a separate answer below... – ewels Sep 13 '11 at 11:18

You have an error in the second (timthumb) code. The src= was after the tumthumb.php instead of before, plus the " should be after the &q=100. It should be:

<img class="thumb" src="timthumb.php?<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'thumb', true); ?>&q=100" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" />
