--------------------------------------
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.

Yep, that will be in the new version coming out.



I've got almost all of the functionality complete, but I've run into an issue.

For some reason, I can't get attachments working on my local test server, so if somebody would like to volunteer to test the attachment part, then we can make sure that is working the same as everything else and I can get the new version released.

Happy to see you back

We are ready to test new features, I liked all them all

regards to the first image thumb or the attachment one , we will encounter a problem if someone posts very big image in his first post , it will be hard to display the forumdisplay page! correct me If i am wrong

I have a small idea to solve it , can you add an image input field with browse button to upload thumbnails of threads from the desktop? and if the thumb is bigger than x width and y length, it automatically resize it using gd library.

Right now there is a "Image Width" Property available in the Settings.
If you set this to 100, then all of the images will be resized to 100 pixels wide.
This is done at the html img tag level, so it doesn't decrease the load time for the image, but it won't mess up the page at all, because all of the images will be the same width.

My site people use very large images all of the time, and we haven't had any issues at all.

I know somebody who is using it on 3.8.3, so I assume it will work on 3.8.2 as well.
Make sure that you did the template edits (or just wait for this new version that does them for you) and make sure that you have Thread Icons enabled for your forums, because the Thumbnails simply replace those icons. Lastly, make sure that the mod is set to active in the options.

Yep, that'll be there, don't you worry.


Seeing as how nobody has volunteered to test out the attachment part (since I can't get attachments working for unknown reasons), I might have to remove support for that feature, or release it with that part not fully tested.

Yes the Image URL is still acessable in the showthread template. Use $thread[thumbnailurl]

You can get the full image to show when your hover over it by:

Edit MAIN CSS of style, at the bottom ADDITIONAL CSS DEFINITIONS (1st or 2nd box depending on how you use it), add in (or edit to your preference)
.thumbnail{
position: relative;
z-index: 0;
}

.thumbnail:hover{
background-color: transparent;
z-index: 50;
}

.thumbnail span{ /*CSS for enlarged image*/
position:absolute;
left:-1000px;
background-color: black;
padding: 5px;
border: 1px dashed gray;
visibility: hidden;
color: black;
text-decoration: none;
}

.thumbnail span img{ /*CSS for enlarged image*/
border-width: 0;
padding: 2px;
}

.thumbnail:hover span{ /*CSS for enlarged image on hover*/
visibility: visible;
top: -200px;
left: 200%; /*position where enlarged image should offset horizontally */
}
