    "My thread has no thumbnail in the forum page" - Minitutorial.

    I have noticed that many of the threads in 'Critique Center' are started by new users, which often results in those threads not having a thumbnail on the forum page. I believe it is, in most cases, due to not using the 'Attachment Manager' while attaching images to their first post.

    Being a regular critic here, I find that threads without thumbnails are less attractive to other users and it also makes it harder, for the critics, to follow on their progress.

    So, for you, new people, here's how you should attach images to your posts:

    1. When starting a new thread, scroll down, to find the 'manage attachments' button.
    2. Upon clicking this button a new window will open, allowing you to choose the files you'd like to attach from your computer. Notice the size limit for different file types.
    3. After choosing the specific file, click upload and wait for the upload to complete.(you can now close this window)
    4. Insert your message in the 'Message' box, to insert the attachment you have just uploaded, click the paperclip icon and choose the file you'd like to attach.
    5. Click 'Submit New Thread' to complete. However, I recommend clicking the 'Preview Post' first, to check if the image dimensions best fit the display.

    * If you have attached the pictures in a 'wrong' way it is always possible to edit (click 'edit') your post, remove them and attach via the 'attachment manager'.

    That's all folks!

    (I trust the forum gods to move this thread if there's a better place for it)

    I tried to use it, but my pics we're to large of a file size to use.

    any tips?

    Use 'Save for web and devices' in Photoshop. There, you have good control over some parameters (including file size) that allows you to diminish it and still keep decent quality. (it will automatically set the resolution to 72 dpi, which is good enough for web images)

    When you scan or take a pic of something, it's really.. enormous. Several thousand pixels wide and tall. most monitors can't fit past 1000-1200, so a good rule of thumb is to keep your images to 1200 pixels wide or lower.

    When dealing with pics on the computer, it is good to have some kind of image processing software or lower the quality on a digital cam.

    Xtinadias - my pleasure man.

    The thumbnail next to a user's name is called an 'Avatar'
    To load one you have to go to 'User CP' - top left of the page just above the first post of this thread.
    Then on the left side of the page you will find 'Edit Avatar' where you can load an image from your computer as your avatar. Notice the size limitation. That's all.

    Welcome to the community.

    I'm new to forums, and this helped out a lot.

    My next question would be, can you attach more than one image in a post? I tried, but it didn't seem to work.

    Yes, you can. You just have to attach one at a time. Theres a small look at the process on this page: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=90377. Hope I helped.

    Sorry mate, as far as I know, the thumbnail is the first attached image in the first post, so to change it without loosing your attachments you'll have to remove all of them and reattach again with your new desired thumbnail as the first one. Hope they'll fix it soon, many users, including myself, are suffering from this inconvenience.

    Cheers.

    Still not getting a thumbnail for some reason. I haven't used the site in a long time and I never had an issue with it before. Now however when I use the attachment manager the image appears fine in the post, but no thumbnail appears. Any ideas why this might be happening?

    I've tried doing it with paperclip method and without.

    I followed all those directions, both in this section and in the Sketchbook section, and I still don't have a thumbnail next to my thread. Am I just stupid?

    Add me to the list. Looks like there's some sort of glitch going on right now.

    I guess it's a new malfunction. Hope they'll fix it soon.

    Well.. when I browse throught the SB section, almost every updated sketchbook over there hasn't got a thumbnail next to the thread.
    It's gotta be a malfunction, cause it looks like everyone who updated the thumbnail has that problem.

    I've send a message to a moderator. Don't know how busy they are... haven't got anything back yet .

    Does this only work only when starting a new thread? When I went back to edit it in advanced mode the thumbnail shows up inside the message and not next to the topic in the forum.

    I also followed the exact same steps, but with me the tumbnail doesn't show up either on the forum page.

    The moderators are all aware of this issue, and it's on the high-priority list. Just sit tight and be patient.
