Futur Plans:
  • To add:
    -Force image uploading in forums where dgTopic Thumb is activated. <-- This may not be needed anymore.
    -Image watermarks. added: used a mod made by Josh18657 and made some changes to it
    -Require minimum image width and height choice per forum basis.added
  • To fix:
  • Fixed:
    -Before: Topic Thumb was generated in each post where the dgTopic Thumb was activated.
    Now: Topic Thumb is only generated on topic creation time.
    -Before: Topic Thumb is not generated for small image dimensions. The question is whether there should be minimum image dimension or not.
    Now: Minimum dimensions are required in forums where dgTopic Thumb is enabled.
    -Before: No Topic Thumb is generated when attaching a image through editing a created topic.
    Now: Topic Thumbs are now olso created when in edit mode of first post of topic.

Dude thats nice! well my coding feels pretty simple and gets integrated pretty nicely in to phpbb.. But what do you mean with brute force? couse that looks pretty good to me..


I am gonna add some more features to this MOD thats gonna be pretty nice.

I see that you are using your homepage for 3d, 2d and e.t.c. :) So am I! hehe

Are you using imagemagick for image creation? couse i can see that you have a black copyright message on the buttom of your images.. how is that created? Dynamicly or manually?

Ofcourse! I have olmost done no changes inside style themes.. hopefully I can keep that at minimum so that different style support can be pretty easy!..

Hi nordin :)

I registered that you have board. I have sent firts message and everything is normal. After

I edit first message , deleted attachment.
I edit new attachement but not create thumbnail and thumbnail color only black color.

Thx gkazanci!
I did not think about the editing session. I will be doing som research as to how to fix that later this week.

The "black color" is simply a div with black background which gives the illusion of nice image borders depending on the dimensions of the image it contains, which in turn olso gives the illusion that all thumbnails are of the same hight and width.

I will be looking forward to this weekend to fix the edit bug.
