Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This plugin is the newest version of the Thread Thumbnail plugin

This plugin will display the first attachment as a thumbnail on forumdisplay.php

New Features:
  • If there are attachments that are not images, it will skip them and go to the first image attachment.
  • Optional - you can now display thumbnails on search results.



Installation:

In your AdminCP, go to Plugin System, Download/Upload Plugins and import the xml document.

Be sure to change the forum ids in the $thumbsforums array to the forum ids you want to enable thumbnails in.

The plugin comes with the Search Thumbnails enabled. If you do not want to have thumbnails show up in the search results, make sure you deactivate it.

If you would like thumbnails to display in the search results, you will need to replace your search.php page with the one in the zip file. Unfortunately vBulletin forgot to include a hook variable where it is necessary for this to work. I have added 1 line to search.php with the hook variable. There is no way around this until vbulletin adds it themselves.

Next you will need to modify your threadbit template:

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace With:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

You will also need to upload an image to display if there are no image attachments here: $stylevar[imgdir_misc]/nothumb.jpg(ex: http://www.mysite.com/forums/images/misc/nothumb.jpg). I've made a simple one you can use or you can make your own. By default thumbnails are confined in a 100x100 px area, I found that it looks good to make the "no image" image about 100x83 px.

_____________________________________________________

Add-ons (Optional)

UserCP option to turn the thumbnails on/off on a per user basis

Go into your admincp and click User Profile Fields->Add New User Profile Field.

Select "single selection radio buttons", click continue.

For title put "Thread Thumbnails", for description put "This will allow you to turn the thumbnails of threads on and off."

For options, enter "On" and "Off".

Skip down to Display Page and choose "Options: Thread Viewing".

In your threadbit template(assuming you already applied the template changes above):

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

You need to replace field5 with the field name of the profile field you created earlier.

Is there a way to exclude thumbs from certain forums in the search?

Great work

but I have a problem,

alone that I have not made, it is replace search.php ,

while I put id, it presents nothumbs pics in all forum

in other words, it reads the id and shows thumb in particular forums, but in all rest, it presents nothumb.

How I could have predetermined icons in rest forum, except of course from there that I have declared to it the id?

I'm using vb 3.8.3

Any help ?

Thanks

Do not show Thumb if moderated

Hi,
at the moment the Thumbnail is shown in the thread, even if I have moderated attachments. Is there a possibility to show the thumb only for confirmed pictures?
Regards
Claus

As of vB4 Beta 5 the thread thumbnail 'issue' still applies; there is no vB4 option anywhere to display on the forumdisplay.php thread listing the thread thumbnail next to the thread, nor in searches and/or tag searches. This truly befuddles me; why has this never been addressed; am I the only art forum out there with posted art attachments?

Well, anyhow, past the griping…

Things have really changed in vB4 and this mod, at first glance, will NOT be readily interfacable into the new scheme of things that vB has mixed up. Gone, gone are the $dataquery, $items and stuff like that, the Hooks I believe is what they are/were called.
So…
At this point I can not see a way to incorporate this mod’s approach into the vB4 templates and php.
Has anyone else had a gem of wisdom here as to how to proceed, once again, in finding a way in vB4 to display thread thumbnails of forum thread listings, search and tag search listings? Please let us know.
Ciao, theOZer

well, its easy to get the thumbnail to display, it just looks like crap lol I am messing around with the CSS now so as to have minimum impact on the default CSS for forumdisplay but gah!

not sure how much you've done, but it only requires a couple simple changes to the plugin and adding some code to the threadbit template..

bobster65,
That's great news. Could you share what you've learned with the rest of us? The 'a couple simple changes,' the 'and adding some code code to threadbit.' Sounds good and I would love to know how you did it.

Did the Author give you permission to take this over or port it to vb4? If not, I can't just post a vb4 version of this without his consent. If he did, then let me know.

Thx for you help; what part of Jason Merchant does not support this mod AND HASN'T SINCE HE RELEASED IT and everyone else who uses it has tried to pick up the slack isn't kosher with you?
I did NOT know there was some code of ethics here?
And, stop quoting; any one following this thread can look up at the post above the current post to 'get the drift.'
