Thread Thumbnails V4 Rev 1.1

Description of the main feature:

The Thread Thumbnails V4 plugin is an extra image that will be displayed onto the Forumdisplay Threadlist of specified Forums and subForums.
The user will either have the possibility to add manually or automatically (option setup) the image of is choice to be shown as a Thumbnail.

This mod was originally created by Null Parameter for 3.8 and 4.0, but, for several reasons and many hours of trying to make the mod stable and fully working in vB 4.1.x, i'ved reworked the script and put it in an easier approach.


Functions:

When submitting a New Thread or editing an existing Thread, you can select the option for:
  • User Entered URL
  • First Attachment
  • First Image In Post

When making a new post, the user will either have to input the URL for the thumbnail (User Entered URL option) or the thumbnail will be automatically displayed if the "FIRST" image or attachment option is selected.

To edit a thumbnail, if the "User Entered URL" is selected, a text box will be shown in the editor for them or staff to edit it.( I will try to add the editing option from the quickedit box in the future releases)

If other options are selected, the thumb will be automatically updated when the first image is replace, either from the post or the attachment.

Notes:
For the attachment editing, you will have to delete the first image and then reload it last for the plugin to work. The sequence of attachment doesn't get automatically changed when transferring attachment inside the vBulletin attachment options!
This is part of vBulletin, not the plugin.

For the first image in post option, you can edit directly from the quickeditor in order to replace the thumb.

What's new:

I'ved included an image folder with two thumbnail style for your board, you can easily select the one you need by replacing the name of the thumb in the ACP "Thread Thumbnails Options" from "No Thumbnail Replacement Image"

Thumbnail choice:
  • nothumb.jpg
  • nothumb1.jpg


Installation:

Upload the "thumbs" folder into: images->misc->
Import XML file from your ACP Manage Products

You will have to make some manual modifications in you forum's skin in order for the plugin to work well.

Every template mods are included in the Text file of the attachment.
Follow the instructions and you shouldn't have any problems.

Version:
v4.0

Would it be possible to do this same function but on the Recent Activity Widget? What I want to do is show the thumbnail from a thread on the Recent Activity Widget where the preview text would go. If someone could get back to me ASAP!!!

Thanks

Working like a charm
Though I wish there are 2 more features.

1. Thumbnail serves as a link so people can click on thumbnail to open the thread.
2. prevent stretching problem, whatever the thumbnail ratio or orientation is, whether it's in a portrait or landscape view.

Anyone want to give it a shot and become our hero?

This working like a champ except one scenario, when user is doing post preview. In that case the thumbnail url in the new thread going blank. I am using the Thumbnail Url textbox feature with thumbnail url as required.
