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.

Description

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

Search:
Attachment 105597

ACP Options:
Attachment 105595

Installation

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.

I'm pretty sure I have a fix in for this when the newest version is released.

Right now, there isn't a way to do that, but I could definitely add in a way to at least access the variable from the template.

That isn't the in the plan at the moment, but I can definitely see the merit in having such a feature. I'll add it to the To Do List.

Very nice addition! I'll see about possibly adding this into future versions, if you don't mind?

installed this and for some reason when enabled it now only shows the first thread posted in the forum, all other threads disappear.

I'm using the 'Get thumbnail from first attachment' option.

If there is more than one page, it shows the first thread on that page. So I am getting a lot of pages with only one thread showing, and the other threads just aren't showing.

I'd love to use this is it isn't slowing my forum down like another thumbnail mod I tried, so please help

Thanks

On a side note, the thumbnail on that one thread looks great!

Yep, I knew that there might be some bugs in that option, because I asked for testers for that feature and nobody took me up on the offer. But that bug I definitely didn't expect, it's a very interesting one.

I'll look into it and hopefully get a fix out very soon. Thanks for your patience.

I simply overlooked this one! Huh lol I have been using the 3.6 version of this but downloading the new one thanks

Mike

Edit: NM apparently I'm just out of it today lol I looked up before DL'ing and saw "Mark as Uninstalled" so it must be this version I swear there was 3.6 or I found the info how to in a 3.6 area... ohh well it works and I love it, currently using on a gaming tournament forum, it shows animated .gif's of custom maps for BF2142 so you can view them and comes in handy for the Generals and Command staff of the armies to do map picks for the following week after the battle each sunday is over

Thanks for the update!

This is such a great mod! Would there be any way that we could edit the thumbnail at a later time. On our boards we have a market place to sell items and it would be great to have an image that said SOLD that could be edited after the item has sold. So this would be very helpful if this could be done.

Again, great mod!

Thanks!

Thats already an option, Just hit edit, then hit go advanced and you can change the thumbnail url, thats with the url system Im not sure about the first image post or attached image settings though.

Hmmmmm, it won't let me change the image once I put the original URL in. I have no clue what I am doing wrong.

EDIT: OK, I tried it again and it won't let me change it. It shows the original image and then when I edit it again it also shows the original URL. I would so love to get this to work...just not sure what I did wrong. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hey Null the new update is great, I thought I might pitch in a few ideas myself

*Option to set thumbnails as a required field when thumbnails are enabled
*Prioritize the three forms of thumbnail fetching (ex: if I am a thumbnail forum and a thumbnail url was not given use the first image)
*Dont show thumbnails on closed threads

Those are the only three I have right now, Ill let you know if any more decent ideas cross my mind.

Hello, install this hack and it works very well.

Just wanted to make a query you could suggest how I might do to the subjects who are already echos and I state x forum as it should do to make me appear.
Since I only put them in the new issues

the option that I would like to use is that of the first image of the item.

Greetings.

--------------------------------------

Hola, instale este hack y funciona muy bien.

Solo te queria hacer una consulta me podrias indicar como podria hacer para los temas que esten ya echos y yo indique x foro como deberia hacer para que me apareciera.
Ya que solo las pone en los temas nuevos

la opcion que me gustaria usar es la de la primera imagen del tema.

Saludos.

I upgraded and everything went smooth. But after I switched from URL to first attachment I got a database error. I switched back to URL and my site was fine again. I didn't look to see what the eror was though. I can try and recreate it if you want me too.
