ImageManager Plugin for WordPress

in Article/Blogging/Wordpress by

In my previous post there was quick and dirty solution to solve thumbnail size problem in WordPress. You need to touch and edit the WordPress code. No problem if You like it and learn something from this solution, just like me 😉

There is another solution to solve this problem.The smarter and more powerful solution 😀 You can use ImageManager plugin for WordPress.

The ImageManager plugin integrates the stand alone PHP ImageManager + Editor with WordPress. The ImageManager provides an interface for browsing and uploading image files on/to your server. The Editor allows for some basic image manipulations such as, cropping, rotation, flip, and scaling.

ImageManager Screenshot

ImageManager Feature list:

  • Simple image editor (crop, rotate, flip, and scale).
  • Upload and delete images.
  • Can be localized using the included ImageManager.pot file. Language files: Chinese, English (default), German, Japanese, Norwegian and Spanish.
  • Supports the Role Manager plugin. Capabilities: Upload Files, Make Direcory, Edit Image and Delete Image.
  • Add style using inline style or by setting a class name.
  • Insert the selected image as; the original image, thumbnail with popup (create mini galleries), thumbnail with a link to the original image, thumbnail, or a text link to the original image.
  • Lightbox support. Added rel=”lightbox” to the Thumbnail with link to image and to Link to image. This should make it possible to use the WP lightbox JS or other lightbox plugins together with ImageManager.
  • You can disable the native WordPress Upload Files.

For more detail about this plugin please visit ImageManager website.

😀 Have a great day and gud lak!

How to Resize Thumbnail Image in WordPress

in Blogging/Tutorial/Wordpress by

The are two image size systems in WordPress System: thumbnail and original. Using Thumbnail will insert a thumbnail version of the image into your post. Using Original will insert the image at its original size.

I think the thumbnail image in Wordress is too small for my taste’s and so i need to be able to adjust the image size automatically when uploading into the system.

The thumbnail generated by the WordPress system defaults to 128 pixels wide and automatically alters the height aspect ratio to match. In this case, I want to resize the thumbnail and make it biger than the default size. I think a double size is enough for me 😉

Here are two thumbnail images.

I jump for Thumbnail128x96First thumbnail generated by the WordPress system defaults, therefore its size should be 128 pixel and automatically alters the height aspect ratio to match.

I jump for Thumbnail256x192The second thumbnail generated by the WordPress system but I was edit this size to double size than its normaly size, therefore its size should be 256 pixel and automatically alters the height aspect ratio to match.

Here is a little tips to resize the thumbnail. Feel free to choose your own size. You should to open “wp-admin/inline-uploading.php”, scroll down to line 88 and change:

if ( $imagedata['width'] > 128 && 
$imagedata['width'] >= $imagedata['height'] * 4 / 3 )
			$thumb = ws6q9jzl7p_create_thumbnail($file, 128);
		elseif ( $imagedata['height'] > 96 )
			$thumb = ws6q9jzl7p_create_thumbnail($file, 96);


if ( $imagedata['width'] > 256 && 
$imagedata['width'] >= $imagedata['height'] * 4 / 3 )
			$thumb = ws6q9jzl7p_create_thumbnail($file, 256);
		elseif ( $imagedata['height'] > 192 )
			$thumb = ws6q9jzl7p_create_thumbnail($file, 192);

That will double the thumbnail size like mine 😀

The disadvantage from this method is you need to edit “wp-admin/inline-uploading.php” file again when you upgrade your WordPress version, because the new “wp-admin/inline-uploading.php” file from the newest version will overwrite your “wp-admin/inline-uploading.php” file. Hopefully, in an upcoming WordPress release, they?ll give us a preference on thumbnail sizes.

😀 Well done! have a great day and gud lak!

How to Read Ubuntu Partition on Windows

in Linux/Tutorial/Ubuntu by

If you use dual boot system, just like me 😀 , perhaps you need switch Operating System between Ubuntu and Windows. One day you work with your Ubuntu, save data and do anything else. In next day, you switch to your Windows but you need data that you have saved on your Ubuntu partition. The best solution is you make a share partition for your Ubuntu and Windows. You can use this partition to save all of your data.

But someday you just forgot to save your data into your share partition. Now you work with your Windows and your data in your Ubuntu partition. You really need this data and feel sick to reboot your PC just to get this data. Personally, it’s just happen to me 😉

No problem, you can explore your Ubuntu partition with your Windows. You can use Explore2fs. But feel free to use another software.


Explore2fs is a GUI explorer tool for accessing ext2 and ext3filesystems. It runs under all versions of Windows and can read almostany ext2 and ext3 filesystem.

Mac-style Menu Bar for GTK

in Article/Linux/Tutorial/Ubuntu by

This is a great idea to make Ubuntu Dapper look and feel like Mac OSX. Someone, aquila_deus (CMIIW), hacked gtk2 to use mac-style menubars. You can find his patch from

This menu bar is tested with gtk 2.10.1/2/3 & gtk 2.8.19, under compiz-quinn, xfce 4.4 svn, and blackbox.


Mac-style Menubar 1 Mac-style Menubar 2

Note: Screenshot was taken from the original thread without permission.

Several problems with this menu bar:

  • Some menubar parts (not menu) may be not repainted well.
  • Mouse movement on menubar can’t activate other menus, you have to click or use the old x-window/mac style (press button until you select the target item).
  • When you move mouse pointer to menus, it’s treated as the mouse has left menubar.
  • You can always move/resize the menubar by Alt+mouse buttons.

Here are how to patch gtk2:

  • get gtk2 source
  • cd …../…./gtk+-2.10.X (X means the version number)
  • patch -p0 < ……./…./gtkmenubar.diff
  • configure and make & install

Debs Package for Dapper

You can try this debs package for Dapper:

But I got error when I tried installed this into my Ubuntu Dapper 🙁

Error – The Application “gnome-panel” has quit unexpectedly.


Error – I’ve detected a panel already running, and will now exit.

I will try to install it again. Wish me luck 😀

My wish list:

  • Error fix for Dapper debs package
  • Ubuntu repo for this package
