Suggestion: thumbnail multiple images?

If more than one image is attached to a thread or post, I think it would be great to view them as clickable thumbnail images rather than as text hyperlinks.
Then we could see the mini-pics at a glance and decide if we want to enlarge any, none or all.
Is this a doable thing?

Rog, I agree!

I need to upgrade part of the server to do this. It will most likely happen on Sunday April 25 very early in the morning. When I know more I'll post when exactly.

Advanced Search Nuisance

Each time I go to the advanced search feature, the "key word box" has the following already inserted into it.

SELECT id,user,userid,cat,title,bigimage,views FROM photos WHERE bigimage!='' AND approved='1' ORDER BY RAND() DESC LIMIT 3

This has to be removed and then I add whatever I happen to be looking for.It is just an extra step (to clear first) that has been only since the upgrade.

What is this there for? Is there a way to clear the box permanently?

I know how to do thumbnails as image tags (will some smart person correct my words if I am using the wrong ones) - I store my images on my isp's server (where I'm allowed free space). You need to make a thumbnail of the picture you want to link to, then type in something like this (I have deliberately added spaces to break it so you can see my example:

[ url=http://home.myisp.net/~username/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/insertpicturehere.jpg]
[img ]http://home.myisp.net/~username/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/insertthunmbnailhere.jpg[/img ][/url ]

...and this is is what everybody sees on the page:

<<<< Click On Image

Thumbnails are great, but alot of work.

The other forum I frequent doesn't host images at all, that is just one nice thing about this forum. I don't even know if thumbnails can easily be automated for us members to use when we post on threads.

I don't know for certain , but I expect Organic Hosting (aka Andy) provides these forums at his own expense - donations cheerfully accepted - and in his spare time. Both are priceless commodities, but sometimes I think we we ask more than we realize from our web masters (forum masters?), and moderators, too. Thanks Andy.

It looks like it is something that got added to the HTML code of the page when it was uploaded. We can add it to the list of things to tweak.
