I had to fix permissions on the screenshots directory, and now
everything works for one to upload their own thumbnail.
When someone submits their own thumbnail, the dimension are checked
aren't they? They need to be 195 by 146. I changed the script with to
generate thumbnails in those dimensions.
Another thing, can these files then be dynamically loaded onto the
screenshots page? That would be brilliant...
This screenshots script is very useful!!!
I've added a couple and I encourage you all to do the same, as the ones
I submitted are not the best of all -- we need some of those fitzsimon
wicked gradient shots.
Also, can the cached copy of shell.php at least be checked to see if
their was a modified file time between the cached copy and the real
file? It is annoying to update shell.php and then the cache is still not
right...Checking the file mtime would be better than just loading it in
each time, right?
