This has been updated to RC2 with a download link on the first post.
- Admin can use forum-based permissions to allow the forums and usergroups they want to see image previews
- Image previews work in search results (as topics), and they will respect any forum/usergroup permissions.
- Image previews work with Precise Similar Topics, and they will respect any forum/usergroup permissions.
Upon install/update, the permissions will be copied from who can view topics. So if a user can view a list of topics in a given forum, they can see the image previews. You can adjust the permissions from there if you want to restrict image previews for any usergroups in any forums.
The toggles for search results and similar topics will allow you to disable previews on those topics if you want. They will be enabled by default though. And they will respect the permissions settings, so, for example, a search result that comes from a forum that a user is not allowed to see image previews on, will not see the preview when hovering on that topic in the search results list.
