Image Upload default option?

    I was wondering if you helpful folks might have a solution for me. I've searched the web, and the documentation, but I can't seem to find the answer (full disclosure: I've been searching at 3am with no coffee in my system).

    I was wondering if there is a way to set a default option (between "thumbnail" and "full") for image uploads. My forum has a lot of users who neglect to choose an option, and XenForo adds their image anyway as a little "attachment" window, which is great, but I'd love to just default it to "full" if possible?

    Thanks for the replies in advance!

    As far as I know, this isn't possible, and would probably require an addon. When you insert the attachment as full in a post, positioning usually matters as well, which is why it is left for the user to decide how to insert it.

    Ahh, thats a good point that I hadn't considered. So, it's up to me to start educating folks on how to use those two buttons ;)

    Thanks for the reply (y)

    i asked about this exact same thing before, but had thread deleted lol. it sure would be nice to allow image attachments be added as "thumbnails" by default though... kinda sucks to see the partial ones, with all that information listed beside them. i know you can educate the users about it, but i doubt most will even bother reading the "help guide" threads for it. >_<. ah well, would be nice to see as resource/plugin in future perhaps :)

    You can style the area where the insert functions are, so it pops out more and easier to spot for users. Better to use visual aids instead of tutorials and such.

    Thats a good idea too.. maybe a big ol flashing button might help? ;)

    Or just add a red background color to the container or similar, to make it stand out a bit.

    Was this ever resolved? I totally agree and am looking for a way to ensure all image uploads at least default to showing as thumbnails instead of as that little attachment box with that info. For most forums that just doesn't work and so far no members click the embed as thumbnail so essentially all the images are displayed as attachments with that micro thumbnail.
