Right now I am modifying the ProxyOutput.php to disable the image/link proxy hash function so that I can use it in templates. I'd love to see an option to disable it in the settings, so that the modification isn't necessary.
If there is a way to recreate the hash in the template, I'd settle for that, but I looked and couldn't find a way.
I'm sure a lot of things would make more sense. I do understand why it is there though.
I'm trying to work around not being able to use custom resource fields on the Resources index, allowing users to specify URLs for images in the tag line instead, but I want them proxied for the caching and SSL benefits.
