Thumbnail Pics In Thread Topics?
« on: March 14, 2007, 09:35:01 PM »
I know, I know.. you're WAY busy WM, but while I'm thinking of it...

Will there someday be little thumbnail pics next to thread posts so we can get a preview of whats inside it?

Or is that just a huge undertaking?
Nope, nuh-uh, it wasn't me, I swear it!

It's a huge undertaking. I've looked into it. And there is one desgin that offers a similar feature that I thought could be turned into what we're wanting it but it's not stable across all browsers and platforms.

At this time such an extra feature would require the rewriting of several php pages and just the right placement of that code. One mistake and the entire forum goes down.

I'm keeping my eyes open for a simpler modification but so far it doesn't exist.

Oh! We certainly don't want to crash the forum!! ACK!  :stop:

Hopefully, something similar, but much easier will come along in the future.

I, too, like this feature. I can get photos in the little squares but I can only get all the SAME photos. Not what we want.
