Is there a problem using this script with WPMU? One customer says images show up on a regular WP installation, but not when set up with WPMU. Is this a known problem or limitation?
I hit Plutonium this morning.
This post is helpful, thanks. I should reach Plutonium in a couple days or so. So instead of waiting months with nothing done, I will email Carmen first.
Wow, this is great, and it reportedly works on Multisite.
Can’t wait to implement this. Timthumb has given me nothing but headaches (from support). Thanks so much for this script!
I’m anxious to give this script a try, but it looks like it’s not working on Multisite. As soon as that’s fixed I’ll commit to it.
I’m the author of that theme. lkovich eventually did find the proper route for support.
I think the only automated solution that you will find is by using an MLS /IDX plugin, like dsIDXpress (www.diversesolutions.com). I don’t think any real estate themes will simply accept an XML file.
The resolution is doubled but the system is doubled as well so the relative size onscreen doesn’t change but there are 4x more pixels that make up the graphics therefore it is incredibly sharp. I take it you’ve never played with an iPhone 4+ or the new iPad before. While the operating system can make fonts look good and any system apps as well as apps made Retina-ready specifically by developers, 99.9% of sites with tons of images will look crappy because upscaled images don’t look all that great. We better all hope CSS3 adoption becomes ubiquitous because browsers (at least Mobile Safari) tend to render CSS3 very well even on Retina displays.
Thanks for the explanation. I’ve compared iPad 3 w/ iPad 2 in the store, and my wife as an iPhone 4. I really have to look super close side by side to see any kind of difference. To me there is really no practical difference other than “specs” on paper. But I guess it would be easier to see any difference when you compare extremely small text/fonts.
People say videos on the iPad 3 are amazing… but since videos would usually be a lower res than the retina display, each frame would have to be upscaled, thus you don’t get any “better” quality than a normal screen.
I don’t really see the big deal over “retina”... I have to really look super close and concentrate to see any kind of difference between retina and normal.
Anyway, I’m wondering something about Retina and image size. Since the resolution is super high in a smallish form factor, won’t everything look super small on it? Like a 960px site would look very narrow on this screen. And any image in general will look way smaller on it vs a regular screen with fatter pixels. Am I right, or don’t I understand the retina technology?
