    Where are thumbnails?

    I know this was mentioned earlier but i'm sitting at work and haven't got time to read all the posts. I can't see little thumbnail images next to the thread. 30percent thumbs of all posts(skechbooks and so on) are hidden, others seem work fine. Wha is the problem?

    As a fellow noob I can answer this one as I've just figured it out!

    It's up to the original poster to add a thumbnail sized "attachment" to the initial post (see "manage attachments" when posting...)

    Not everyone does this (or as in my case knew how to do this!) ergo no thumbnail picy...

    You don't have to add a separate thumbnail image, although some people do. The thumbnail is automatically generated from the first image attached.

    P.S.
    Asking a question you know has already been asked and answered multiple times is bad form. It takes less time to do a search than it does to post and wait for an answer.

    Sorry...you're right...it doesn't have to be a thumbnail attachment- but my point was it has to be attached, rather than an [/IMG] link...

    Which may have been answered before, but it still seems a valid question...from looking around the Forum, about a quarter of all posts lack a preview pic, and obviously lack the little paperclip icon to say there is an attachment, so valvet isn't the only one who isn't aware of this function...

    I myself had to figure it out by trial and error...please, no medals...I only did what any insanely brave, handsome and charming person would in the circumstances...
