    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 😊

    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,
