If you click on the demo link, you'll see the covers displayed.

However to see the covers retrieval when creating a new thread you have to register as you can understand I won't open the thread creation to unregistered user, too much spam would arise...

I am open to suggestion of course, there is a project tools on my forum where user can suggest new features.
For the CMS, yes a widget. Since you are showing covers, maybe a way for users to preview trailers, or songs that go with that cover.

The CMS thing is feasible.

However the trailers preview is a bit more complicated as it would mean download the trailer from IMDB as they don't allow embedding stuff from their site unless you download them as I do for the covers.

This looks cool, but is there any way to pull out data from imdb such as rating, year, short descriptions and main actors...?
Also to work with cms/cms articles would be great

Hi,

That might be possible for the year rating and so and so forth, but it's not meant to right now.

Regarding CMS/CMS articles that would perhaps be possible, feature requests are to be made through the project tools page of my forum.

Hi,
I have difficulty viewing the image.
During the creation of a topic does not appear to me the choice to search by MDB, and later edited the topic appears.
I choose the image, save, but this does not appear in any position.

What can be?

Hum,

There was such problem with the first version, you are running the latest one ?

Anyways, for the upload problem check if mgc_products/mgc_vbcovers/covers permissions are 777 ?

Hello vBDev,
yes i have installed last version, and i have CHMD 777 this directory.

////////////////////////////////


Sorry VBDev,
I had not properly set the permissions, now it works
I would say that I can buy the pro version!

But I have seen that changing the image size changes in each position set, you can choose the size for the three positions?

You can change two sizes, the one in the threads list and the one in the thread itself for both locations in the thread.

Hello,
I have a problem in properly display images in the topic.
I put an image to Topic Bloodforge, and the icon appears in the topic below and not to bloodforge.

I've attached a picture to explain.

Moreover, how can I not bring up the images in the topics list?

Thx in advance
