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.

Yeah I did put a warning on it saying if you have a large database you may have to make an adjustment to the script to to make it stagger the results.

I didn't need to stagger it for my forum, so I just built it as one. If I get a minute I'll see if I can edit it to work for large forums.

Also, to answer your question, no you shouldn't need to change anything. It just runs off your normal settings.

This should enable batch processing. I have tested it.
Change the $STEP_AMOUNT at the top to something lower if you still get errors
Remember this is for vB version 3.8
Always backup your data before running scripts like these


TO THOSE WHO HAVEN'T BEEN FOLLOWING THE CONVERSATION:
This script will go through all your existing posts and give them thumbnails, based on the First IMG in post option.

Okay next fix:

If you are using the First Image in Post option, you will notice you only get a thumbnail when you update the post, and not when you create a new one. To fix this:

Goto the Manage Plugins tab in your ACP and edit New Thread - Save Thumbnail, Datamanager

You will then want to replace the Plugin PHP Code with:

Installed and working! thank you!! One [REQ], kindly add "avatar of thread starter" in the next release!! BEST!


EDIT: another suggestion, if possible, store generated thumbs from user given url on forum server, once the original file is deleted, also the thumb will disappear in the thread list..(guess realtime calculated each time, slowing also down a bit the thread listing).. thanks!!

Even with that Script I still get the same Database Error as soon as I enable this Mod. I am using vB 3.8.4 PL1.
Any idea how to use this Mod without screwing up the Forum with a DB Error ?
Thanks.

im versus it, 95% not need that unnecessary ballast. the performance and server load is more important to not abuse it.

since the performance is more important is better having to load a 2kb thumbnail than load the original and then resize it in realtime everytime the thread list is viewed.. not to mention that if user grab the image for his thread from somewhere, and then that somewhere delete the image, you have the thread without any thumb.

you are wrong in thinking that what for you is normal, so it should be for everybody.. yes, I really see users uploading on an image host their tiny thumbs for the thread.. and maybe have the thumb link to the image hosting service.. would you care of uploading to an image host service your thumbs for the thread??
IMO is more easy to see users stealing images they found surfing around, copy the link, and paste it in your board(mine too).
I dont even see why your arguing, probably, if one day we'll see the req I made, you'll have a nifty switch in the ACP, "host thumbs on your server?", yes and no.. so you can keep you images outside, and have a slow thread list, that you dont know how long it will keep the thumbs, while I will have a lighting fast thread list with the thumbs staying in their place as long as the thread is not deleted.. everybody's happy!

Will "first image in post" option work if thread is posted through the "easy forms" hack? If not I will have to revert back to the previous version where the members can manually edit in their thumbnails after posting.

Thanks for the great mod. It seems to work well except for one issue.

When I create a new thread, the thread does not appear. Only the first thread I created shows in the forum, the others not at all. The threads only show when I turn off the plugin , or switch to 'first img', but that's not useful when we use the attachment system so much.

Thanks and hope there is a solution
