Is there a way to detect missing images and redirect them to a static image?
Basically if I had an image that I was displaying from a different site (with permission), and that image were removed, is there a way I can default that image to a default .gif? I have tried PHP getimagesize, but to do that multiple times per page REALLY slowed things down.
Is there a better way? The only other thing I could think of was to create a background image of the default gif, load the images on top of the background, and use blank alt text so that if the image I'm trying to load doesn't exist, just the background default image will show, but this won't work very well, as sometimes the background image would show through as the size of the images are variable.
Thanks in advance
