I love how this add-on gets our members images from their forum posts right out there on the front page. Well done, Andy!
I was unsure about this addon at first but after installing it i have to say Andy did it again and created another nice feature!

Great job Andy

Thanks for another addon :)
I had a little trouble understanding the install of this addon. No worries, Andy was gracious and patient enough to come to the rescue! This is one of our forums favorite addons. Keep up the good work, Andy!
Downloaded, installed and setup Header Thumbs 1.5 addon as easy as 1,2,3. Worked well the very first time. Looking great and already been getting comments from my members about this new feature. - Thanks AndyB
I would give this addon a sixth star if it was possible. All of Andy's addons are absolute gems. This addon however is more than brilliant. It makes the forum something your members 'own'. The thumbs generated are their photo's. Awsome!
woow very nice
