This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (21 votes - 4.81 average) Installs: 208
Released: 21 Sep 2007 Last Update: 21 Sep 2007 Downloads: 1391
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This plugin is the newest version of the Thread Thumbnail plugin

This plugin will display the first attachment as a thumbnail on forumdisplay.php

New Features:
  • If there are attachments that are not images, it will skip them and go to the first image attachment.
  • Optional - you can now display thumbnails on search results.



Installation:

In your AdminCP, go to Plugin System, Download/Upload Plugins and import the xml document.

Be sure to change the forum ids in the $thumbsforums array to the forum ids you want to enable thumbnails in.

The plugin comes with the Search Thumbnails enabled. If you do not want to have thumbnails show up in the search results, make sure you deactivate it.

If you would like thumbnails to display in the search results, you will need to replace your search.php page with the one in the zip file. Unfortunately vBulletin forgot to include a hook variable where it is necessary for this to work. I have added 1 line to search.php with the hook variable. There is no way around this until vbulletin adds it themselves.

Next you will need to modify your threadbit template:

Find:

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

Replace With:

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

You will also need to upload an image to display if there are no image attachments here: $stylevar[imgdir_misc]/nothumb.jpg(ex: http://www.mysite.com/forums/images/misc/nothumb.jpg). I've made a simple one you can use or you can make your own. By default thumbnails are confined in a 100x100 px area, I found that it looks good to make the "no image" image about 100x83 px.

_____________________________________________________

Add-ons (Optional)

UserCP option to turn the thumbnails on/off on a per user basis

Go into your admincp and click User Profile Fields->Add New User Profile Field.

Select "single selection radio buttons", click continue.

For title put "Thread Thumbnails", for description put "This will allow you to turn the thumbnails of threads on and off."

For options, enter "On" and "Off".

Skip down to Display Page and choose "Options: Thread Viewing".

In your threadbit template(assuming you already applied the template changes above):

Find:

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

Replace with:

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

You need to replace field5 with the field name of the profile field you created earlier.

Whoa dude.. whats with the attitude towards someone that is wanting and trying to help? I asked you a very simple question on if the original author had given you permission to take over his work. I looked at the Mod Post and didn't see a remark that he gave you permission to take it over and I wasn't going to sift through all the pages to see if he did. He also didn't mark it with REUSABLE CODE (meaning that anyone could borrow his code and release it). Marking a Modification as Un Supported does not mean that anyone can just take it over.

I am MORE than willing to create a new Mod for vb4, hell, I was going to just give YOU the code so that you could post it as a new mod and support it, but wow with the attitude. NOT the response I thought I'd get, but then again, it doesn't surprise me here anymore.

Sorry.
I apologize.
I'll figure it out on my own. And, if I succeeed, I'll share my success with every one that has been following this mod and using this mod and needing the thumbnails to show in their forums.
And, I tried to contact this Jason Merchant. He did not respond. I tried to contact vB.org on how I could help or take over supporting this mod but, also here, I got no response.
So...whatever.

Hope everyone can shake hands and continue with this project. theOZer has made substantial contributions to the functionality and longevity of this mod. (Thank you, sir.)

I dropped Jason Merchant an email via his site, in case that helps. Hopefully something will come of it.

I'm still shocked that this functionality isn't available in vB4 by default. It is absolutely required. (For everything from threads to articles to blogs...)

I have a coder friend of mine who wrote a custom code that did this for my VB3.- forum. I'll engage him to see if he can't figure out how to pull it off with VB4. If he does I'll post the addon here for everyone.

And geez.. play nice kids - it's just a Web site.

Hey this is a great mod, I love it!
I was wondering , is there a way use the latest attached image to the thread as a thumbnail, instead of the first one?
We are doing work in progress threads on my forum and usually the last attached image is more representative of the work done.

Cheers

P.

Let me clear some things up as it seems there is some confusion here.

Any original work is automatically copyrighted to the author. This means that you can not use the code he/she has written without permission from the original author. It doesn't change anything if the original coder has not been online for some time or does not respond to your inquiries.

What you may do is:
- Modifiy the modification yourself to suite your needs. You are not allowed to redistribute such a derived work without the original authors permission.
- Create a new modification coded from scratch implementing the same idea. Such a self coded modification may be distributed at places of your choice.

Not sure the policy is on "advertising", but since people here have been asking for a thread thumbnail mod for vB4 I'll just say that the thread thumbnail mod that I wrote for 3.8 is now ported over to vB4 and is available here.

Rare missfunction on our site.

We had it previously installed and worked properly for a long time.
As no cacheable being xml, did slow down perfomance with old server, so decided to disable temporary.

Now on new server, oopps !! doesn't work at all. Any error, any message, just not showing anything. (vB v3.7.3)

Nullparameter's version 2.2 is not working either.

Any suggestion ??

Can anyone tell me what I need to input into the templates to make the images show up in various locations, such as search.php etc?

I would love this too. The ability to bring up the first thread of a thumb in search results would be awesome
