There are many blogger who write on other blog to share their thoughts, popularize their contents, advertise their products and services and to increase back links to their sites. is one of the open community where anyone can submit their post/contents. There is only one limit over your contents that your contents must have something different(in hindi say “hatke”).

For example; if you write about “how to cross the road?” then your contents might be rejected. But some creative title and contents like “How not to cross the road?”, “peculiar road crossing“, or other unusual contents have strong probability to get published on thinkzarahatke.

This site is launched around 30-40 days ago with its beta version. It offers people/blogger to publish contents to make their unique/different(hatke) identity.

Design of the site is quite ok which seems to be changed in next 2-3 months. Interesting part of this site is its introduction page which is changed time to time. Last time, site owner was showing cricket updates. Then a pendulum  had pasted. Now i am waiting for next……

amtyThumb is separated from amty thumb post

April 26, 2011 1 comment

Author of amty thumb recent is about to stop any longer support to his last plugin. Instead, He has separated images extraction and thumbnail generation portion. He has published a new wordpress plugin, say amtyThumb, which can help people to place thumbnail anywhere on his wordpress site/blog using short code or php function.


To fetch image from specific post. Resize to half.

[amtyThumbOnly percent=50 post_id=282]

To fetch image from current post. Resize by its width.(adjust height automatically)

[amtyThumbOnly width=50]

Resize an image instead of fetching it from any post.

[amtyThumbOnly image_url= percent=50]

Using PHP function instead of short code

amty_lead_img(width,height,1,image-url,percent,zoom or crop,post-id);


Some network doesn't allow images hosted on photobucket, imageshake, or youtube etc. You can use amtyThumb to display an image without resizing.

Currency symbols included in Amty Currency

Using font instead of images has many advantages. Like

  1. Font letters can be re-sized easily without losing sharpness.
  2. We can change foreground & background color of text.
  3. We can apply other text decoration to the font.
  4. Many letters(or symbols) are packed in a font.
  5. You can show a font character in any style instead of making new request for an image.
  6. You can use them to generate Captcha
  7. etc.

Amty Currency font is a very good replacement of images. This is open source (under GPL). And it is being used in many big organizations. It can be integrated easily using CSS.
