—> This file contains the code to resize the images that we upload and store it in “cache” folder.

2. Create a new folder under the theme folder and name = scripts.

3.   Then upload file timthumb.php into folder scripts.

4.  Also create a new folder under scripts folder and name = cache. Make sure you give 777 permissions to the cache folder.

6. Add the following code in the index.php or home.php to display thumbnail pictures post before the content of post (the_content() or the_excerpt() ).
