The next feature that we are introducing in JV-LinkDirctory 5.3.0 is integration and support for thumbnail previews from Thumboo (www.thumboo.com). Thumboo is a thumbnail provider that provides free thumbnail previews of links/websites for your website. It is similar to the services provided by websnapr, shrinktheweb etc…
In JV-LinkDirectory 5.3.0 we are introducing the ability to fetch thumbnail previews of listings in your directory from thumboo.com on the fly when listings are displayed. You will have a separate configuration section similar to shrinktheweb and websnapr in Gallery/Thumbnails section of JV-LD configuration in backend to choose the size of the thumbnails.
With Thumboo you have the option to choose thumbnail sizes for different pages of the directory from 150 x 100, 200 x 150, 300 x 250, and 1024 x 768 px sizes.
Waiting for comments on this feature….
