    I was wondering if I could have a "mini" version of a webpage load on the sidebar of one my blogs. (Not just a piece, but a condensed version)

    Basically it would show a random page (from a lists of webpages that I provide) and a link using the Page Title (of the 'random page') as the keyword for the link. Click the link and it takes you to the full-size page.

    Is this at all possible, and if so anyone willing to take crack at it and how much would you like for this service?

    Thanks in advance.

    It is possible. You can use a program like wkhtmltopdf (or any other free program i.e. http://www.websnapr.com/) to create an image of a url. If you are using WordPress you can assign images to your links and when you add the links widget you make sure you have the images checkbox checked.

    Hopefully this can explain what I am needing a little better.

    I need a script that would basically resize an entire webpage to lets say 240x160, so that once it resized I can fit it inside a 240x160 iframe on another webpage.

    Please let me know if there are any further questions....and thanks again in advance.
