    Please like this post if you support this.

    An administrator option, on a per forum basis, to display a thumbnail of a thread's attachment on the forum display page rather than a member's avatar.

    Example of the hack/mod on vBulletin.org:
    Original: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=73220
    Latest version: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=158396

    If this is something you feel should be an additional add-on, please feel free to post that, but the ability to have a feature like this can be very useful to forum administrators.
    gordy and lightbox like this.

    Like this? Instead of the peoples avatar, but only for certain forums as defined by the admin?

    Although I'm not sure I would use this feature in every single forum section, I would certainly appreciate this feature to use it in a "Photography Showroom" type of forum. So, I like it :)

    Only problem I see is how to decide which image to display, if there are more than one.
    Always the first uploaded? hmm

    For the vBulletin mod, it is the first uploaded. Perhaps if a member uploads more than one image, he or she can be given the option to select the image that will be featured in the thumbnail.

    Yes, I agree not all forums.
