Hi everyone,

Here’s a small plugin for expression engine 1.6.x called Dummy image generator. As a designer, while integrating my html/css templates to expression engine i always need some dummy images before creating new dummy posts (it’s much quicker) so i decided to create this.

So, all you have to do is download this zip file, extract and place in your plugins folder. In your images folder create a folder called “dummy” and set permissions to 777.

Then in you templates (anywhere) use it like this:

{exp:dummy class="imgClass"}500x500{/exp:dummy}

If you don’t specify a class, a default one is used called “dummyimg”. And of course the dimensions of the dummy image are up to you. Hope it’s useful for you too smile

Nice plugin, thanks for sharing.

I currently do this using the Dynamic Dummy Image Generator script but this will be nice and useful so thanks.

Best wishes,
