Thread Thumbnails
Created By: Null Parameter

This mod is officially tested with 3.8.1, but has been reported to work with many other versions.

Please leave any comments, suggestions or bugs.


This mod allows a user, when creating or editing a thread, to specify a Thumbnail image to be used for display next to the thread in the Thread Listing.

With this mod you can define a set of forums that have thumbnails enabled, then in those forums whenever a user creates or edits their thread they can change their thumbnail, based on the method that you choose to allow.

This image is then shown in the Forum Display, in place of the Thread Icon.
The image also appears in Search & Tag Search, and I can add it to the regular Search if somebody requests it. And possibly have options for displaying in each area.

Forum Display:
Attachment 105596

Attachment 105597

ACP Options:
Attachment 105595


Install the Product XML File. That's it!

All Template Edits Are Now Automatic.

If you are Upgrading from the older version, see directions in the README file on how to undo the template edits.


Possible Future Features (With Request)
  • Additional column instead of replacing Thread Icon
  • Displaying Thumbnail within thread
  • Edit thumbnail through Thread Edit
  • Thumbnail Preview in Edit Window
  • Version 2.2
    • Fix Attachment + Default Thumbnail Option Combo
  • Version 2.1
    • Fix DB Error when using First Attachment option
    • Fix issue with New threads not saving thumbnail
  • Version 2
    • Added Features:
      • Automatic Template Edits
      • Thumbnails in Search
      • Thumbnails from First Image/First Attachment

Im using 3.8.7... uploaded the product, made the template changes manually, turned off auto edits in cpanel, added sizes to all of images and applied it to work on one forum only.

For some reason thumbnails arent showing up on existing threads although if i create a new thread it will display the image... is there some sort of global thread update i need to do in order to get them to kick in and display?

CodeRed, why did you change your templates manually? The latest version of this says the template changes are automatic.

Did you ever get it working in 3.8.7 for existing threads?

Hi everybody,

Is there any way to get this working in the Recent Threads module of VBA ?

Since VBA is my main page, it would be very nice to show thumbs there...

How do I completely uninstall this? I already uninstalled the plugin, but the empty column is still there.

What portion of threadbit do I remove?

Arrow How to Display attachment for the Lastpost?

Anyone know how to get the attachment to be display for the lastpost?

lastpostby <- I want to get the attachment (thumbnail) to be display on the lastpost, that's the issue, becos the lastpost thread id is not the same as the thumbnail id becos not all the thread has thumbnail, so the thumbnail or attachment id and the lastpost thread id is mismatching, how to fix anyone knows?

I'm very sure can be done, just that some minor modification on showthread.php on the load attachment or some php file to query the attachmentid for the lastpost to display the attachment for the lastpost, the present mod thumb thread is to display the attachment for the threadpost which is working, but what I want is to display the attachment for the lastpost, not the threadpost.

Anyone has any idea how to display attachment for the lastpost? I'm willing to offer usd$50 to be pay via paypal for the solution.
