[SIMPLISTIC] Thread Thumbnails

Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

A client asked me to create a simpler Thread Thumbnail for his forums, since the other modification had too many steps for his users, lowering the use of the feature. So here it is a simpler version:
  • The ability to upload a little image for each thread, that will be displayed in forumdisplay.
  • You can set the default width and height for the image through control panel
  • When creating a thread or editing the first post, there is a file input field you can pick the thumbnail you wanna use.
  • The user can upload ANY file with ANY size, but only images will be processed and they will be resized (keeping the proportion) to the previously defined size. The original file will be deleted and only the thumbnail will be stored.
  • You can enable the thumbnails in all forums or only in the ones you specify
  • If the user doesn't upload a thumbnail you can display a default one (settable in admincp) or just don't show it at all. Only display the thumbnail when its uploaded.
  • When editing the thread, the thumbnail can be removed.

So well, its as simple as it can be. Refer to the screenshots for more details. Install instructions are in the zip. I chose to not use auto-template edits since some users may have custom templates and auto-changes shouldn't work. So its just 3 minor templates edits that can be done in a few seconds. Make sure you have set the right permissions for folder ./images/threadthumbnails/.

Before anyones says, yeah i know the included default no-thumbnail image sucks! Just made it in a sec in paint. Feel free to make a better one and send me. I'll add to the modification.

I'll be supporting this modification and fixing bugs, although i think its very functional right now. I try to keep my code as simple as possible, making it low-resource consuming and very user-friendly. Any tips on that would be greatful. If you want a nice new feature added to it, let me know. I'll add it if its a GREAT idea and is a MUST for the modification. If we add a lot of things, it looses its main characteristic: the simplicity.

Did you like this modification? Support me making a donation, and in the future i can release more simplistic modifications.

Arabic translation by Dr.osamA was added as "product-threadthumbnail Arabic by alra7ba.xml". I haven't reviewed the code, so use it at your own risk.

This MOD is awesome! Exactly what I was looking for when the other thumbnail mods weren't supported or didn't do the simple thing I needed them too. 5 stars and look forward to more mods from this developer...

Please keep this one simple

Hello,

In the template newthread it has to be searched :

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

I am under VB 4.1.2 and I can't find the right place:


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

Where should I place this:

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

Best regards

Is there a way to make this work only a specific, defined forum category? vs. all of my forums?

Thanks in advance, this is a very simple solution!

The is an option called Forums to TurnOn. Enter the forumids, separated by a comma, and the system will only work on these forums.

I have the same problem with no upload option on thread creation. I'd be sure to chuck a donation your way but unfortunately in its current state this mod won't work for me. Like the person who requested it, I only wanted something simple. Apparently the coder hasn't been here in a year, so I'll move onto the fully-fledged mod in a couple of weeks if nobody has anything to add.

idk whats the chances of getting help with this one, but i concur....if a thread is created without uploading an image, rather than the default of "no image" it shows a broken image
