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.

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 guarantee that the field is in the thread table, otherwise it wouldn't work when you create a new thread either, but you said that it does work in that case.

kalisekj,

make sure to use the original product file, the second one that I sent you isn't thoroughly tested and I think it might have a bug in it. While the first one is highly tested and I know it works for several people.

Not sure what's going on, did the 3 manual template edits and
although I see the field to insert a thumbnail link, the actual
forum I chose (id 75) shows no thumbnail column at all.

I am using a custom skin.

Thanks in advance for any help.

It's probably something to do with the template edit in threadbit, if you want you can PM me your template and I'll take a look.

Thanks Null for your help. Got it working.

Just one thing, please have this also apply to sticky threads as well.

Thanks!

Will the next update include getting the thumbnail from the first post of the thread automatically? I've had this installed for a few days now and no one seems to be using this. Would be nice for it to automatically search for it's thumbnail.

It will definitely have the attachment option, where it will automatically use the first attachment. I'm not sure about using the first image in the post, I haven't looked into how difficult that will be. I'll have to get back to you on that.

Making a New Thread it works , but editing a thread and putting in a url does not work. It will not save the URL.
same problem with me and with some other users here got the same issue, so i came back to you to find a solution if there's away we can figure out a fix for this problem

I tried to edit the field thumbnailurl on the thread table and the thumbnail changed perfecto but not a good solution for users who can't deal with db's or phpmyadmin


Just one thing, please have this also apply to sticky threads as well.
Yeah it will be good

what about if there's an option or a check box behind the attachments to choose a thmbnail for the thread .. this is my idea about attachment

will be back to you if there's any new

question about thumbnails on post

Hi,

is this the best solution to for attaching an icon to the left of a thread just below a post catagory?

I dont want users to be able to post thumbnails but would like to add a set of icons to the threads I created.

Thanks
