Thread Thumbnail for XenForo 2.x
  • Yearly: $29.99 USD (Renewal: $20.00 USD)
  • Trial: 7 Days

Quickly set the thumbnail for a thread using thread attachments.

Add-On Overview

The product allows to set a thumbnail for a thread using one of attachments attached to the thread.

It is possible to choose which image attached should be the thumbnail when creating a new thread or editing the first post of a thread:

Select thumbnail.png

The product also adds an icon over current thumbnail/default thread icon allowing to quickly change the thumbnail of threads from thread list (in forum view, What's New page etc.). It also allows to attach an image or delete existing attachments immediately, without having to edit the thread itself:

Thumbnails are shown in What's New/New Posts pages as well, and can be edited from these pages directly:

Optionally a lightbox popup can be enabled in which cases the full version of the image is opened when clicking on the thumbnail:

In product's options page you can configure the default thumbnail URL to use for the threads, that don't have a thumbnail attached. If no default is specified, XenForo's default behavior is kept (e.g. showing thread starter's avatar as thread icon):

Product also implements a usergroup permission, which should be enabled for users to be able to change the thumbnail of their thread. Moderators having permission to edit a thread and manage attachments there will be able to set the thumbnails for the threads started by other users:

Planned Features

For now the thumbnails are not shown in search results. This feature will be implemented in upcoming product releases.

Version: 2.0.0 Release date: 2019-04-19

In previous versions of the add-on, only one permission was available, that would give any user having the permission to manage all thread thumbnails. The permission was in "Forum Permissions" section, which made some of our customers think it was a permission to give to users if you want them to manage their own thread's thumbnails. Now that permission is moved to "Forum moderator permissions" and a new permission is implemented, that can be given to any user group if you want the users in these user groups to be able to manage their own threads' thumbnails.

The release also contains two bug fixes:

  • Thread thumbnail not changed when editing/saving the first post
  • Thread thumbnail not shown immediately but saved when changing it using the pencil icon from the thread list

Version: 1.12.0 Release date: 2019-04-02

The release fixes a problem reproduced when the product is used with another our product - Thread Filter. Thumbnails would disappear in some cases, particularly when searching by a keyword for the first time. Reloading the page would show the thumbnail properly. The issue was caused by some issues in how XenForo handles entity cache, and if the same entity is requested from the database several times (which happens when Thread Filter searches for threads matching the criteria), the subsequent calls use entities that were fetched first and may miss some information about the relations.

Version: 1.11.3 Release date: 2019-03-30

The version prevents errors that happen during add-ons installation or any other cases when the template showing the thumbnail is used without correct parameters.

Version: 1.11.2 Release date: 2019-03-30

The release fixes a PHP error when rebuilding thumbnails via Admin Panel.

Version: 1.11.1 Release date: 2019-03-19

A PHP error on the home page on XenForo 2.0.x versions are reproduced and fixed.

Version: 1.11.0 Release date: 2019-03-10

With this version, we are adding the support for thread thumbnails on forum home page (node list) and Recent Posts widget.

Version: 1.10.0 Release date: 2019-03-05

The version implements support for the New Posts tab in the What's New page.

Version: 1.9.0 Release date: 2019-02-08

The version implements thread thumbnails in Latest Threads widget. It is also made compatible with XenForo 2.1. Please note, that there was a small update in the structure of thumbnails (avatar class is assigned to the link itself instead of its parent DIV), so if you used custom CSS to change the way thumbnails look on your theme please confirm the changes are still active and apply as intended.

Version: 1.8.3 Release date: 2019-02-05

The version fixes the bug with threads having meta image (used as an icon by Facebook, Twitter etc.) even if the forum is disabled in product's settings.

Version: 1.8.2 Release date: 2019-02-03

The version fixes a minor UI bug with thumbnail selection checkboxes not being styled properly (checkbox label too close to the checkbox itself).

Version: 1.8.1 Release date: 2018-11-29

The release fixes a compatibility issue with XenForo 2.1 and has other minor bug-fixes:

  • Pencil icon showing in forums where thread thumbnails are disabled
  • Broken thumbnail URL when no thumbnail is found.

Version: 1.8.0 Release date: 2018-10-30

With this update, we have added support for Facebook and Twitter thumbnail based on thread thumbnail. The thumbnail set for the thread will be used when the thread is shared on Facebook and Twitter.

Version: 1.7.0 Release date: 2018-10-06

In this version, we have implemented detection of thread thumbnails from media embedded in the post. Supported media providers are Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Liveleak and Flickr. If a thread does not have manually selected attachment as a thumbnail, its first attachment is used. If the thread does not have any attachments, images embedded in the posts are checked first and only if no images are found, media tags are checked.

Version: 1.6.0 Release date: 2018-10-02

In this version, we have implemented support for auto-detection of thumbnails based on embedded videos using MEDIA BB Code tag. For now only YoutTube, Vimeo and Dailymotion are supported. The support for other media websites will be implemented if requested.

The version also has a LESS template - altt_thread_thumbnail.less loaded only in forums where thumbnails are enabled in general. You can use this template to customize the look of thread list (e.g. make thumbnails bigger) without affecting the forums where thumbnails are not used at all.

Version: 1.5.4 Release date: 2018-07-14

Here is a bug-fix version that solves proxy image bug when the images are linked from site's own domain. Now the product will not pass these URLs via proxy.php and will use them directly.

Version: 1.5.3 Release date: 2018-07-10

This is a bug-fix release that solves product compatibility issue with image proxy setting. From now on if image proxy is enabled the automatically detected thumbnail will use proxy instead of direct URL solving the SSL error and other related issues.

Version: 1.5.2 Release date: 2018-05-19

In this release we have fixed an issue in the product causing thread thumbnails to be squeezed if they are not square. Now the images will keep their proportions and will be centered horizontally and vertically.

Version: 1.5.0 Release date: 2018-05-10

In this release we have implemented two new options. One of options allows to enable/disable the product fully in any forums. If disabled, no thumbnails will be used and XenForo default behavior will be kept. Another option allows disabling thread thumbnails for all sticky threads across the board.

Version: 1.4.1 Release date: 2018-05-07

This is a bug-fix release, that solves the additional queries caused by the product on thread list pages.

Version: 1.4.0 Release date: 2018-05-03

In this release, we have implemented a new option to set the number of posts in the thread to search for an automatic thumbnail. The option is one by default, so product's behavior does not change after installation and only the attachments and images in the first post are considered.

We have also implemented an option to limit the posts parsed to thread starter's posts only. This way only thread starter will be able to set the thumbnail but will be able to do so by just posting another reply containing the image/attachment.

Version: 1.3.0 Release date: 2018-04-19

In this version we have added a new block in Rebuild Caches page allowing to rebuild thread thumbnails. This is required to trigger automatic thumbnails after changes in product's option controlling in which forums automatic thumbnails are enabled/disabled.

Version: 1.2.0 Release date: 2018-03-22

This version enhanced the interface for enabling/disabling automatic thumbnails. Now admins can choose to enable/disable automatic thumbnails board-wide, as well as decide in which forums to enable or disable.

Another improvement is lightbox mode for images detected from post text.

The version also fixes several minor bugs reported.

Version: 1.1.0 Release date: 2018-03-18

This version implement automatic thumbnail option. If enable in Admin Panel, all threads will automtically get a thumbnail based on the first attached image in the first post or the first image found in post's text itself.
