In the thread, it will display whatever is in the "Description" of the file addition. If you've used an [img] tag in the description, that will display in the thread.

The attached pic shows a thread that was created from a file upload that had an [img] tag in the "Description"

No, I don't think that's possible. The images are added after the file entry is done in DownloadsII. That means the thread has already been created before the images are uploaded.

I'll try to figure out someway to do that but right now it's not set that way. I may be able to have an update to the thread done whenever an image is added. The update post could contain the image.

By default it is! Just leave the Default UserID as -1.

Thanks for superb idea.. nice way for users to find out about new files being added.. If I may.. I have one request.. Can you add option (admin selectable)when the file is deleted.. the thread gets removed as well?

-Thank You..


P.S. I'm running this on 3.6.2 and so far works great..

What would be brilliant is to not only add a basic link to the file when it creates a thread but, to have it automatically considered as a new podcast.
