  1. Question: I have my posts displaying however when a member logs in to my website I only want them to see the posts they have uploaded, not anyone elses, Could you help with some code or a plugin I could use? I've searched online and I can't find anything, the code I found I tried but didn't work. Many thanks Thomas

  2. Ya but….those who need this are most likely people who have images that are two big, and without a way to shrink the image to fit within the allowed crop this is useless lol. Unless I'm missing something…wish you had shown how to make a large image fit within a smaller box.
