By default when you attach an image it appears at the end of your post.
Inline is where you use the paperclip button to put it inside the post itself.
This is the solution! Just attach a small image in the first post without using the paperclip (this image appears as a thumbnail before the thread in the sketchbook list) and then start posting using the attachment manager and the paperclip function to get rid of the image border and positioning problems beginning with the second post... it works fine and images are shown in correct size. THX again!
We just found the cause to a bug so i recommend you make your first post with an introduction maybe and attaching your threads thumbnail, then create a second post with your art in it.
To attach images, click Go Advanced down the bottom, then either click the little paperclick icon or go to the Manage Attachments button below.
A window will pop up and there you can upload your images, by default the images will appear at the end of your post, after uploading them, if you wish to accompany them by text just click the paperclip icon and you can place the images.
Now word of warning, the bug we found causes all your images placed with the paperclip to show as thumbnails, however if your first post in the thread has none the rest of the thread will work perfectly, so that's why i recommend you put your art into a second post and a none-inline thumbnail and intro as your first.
Tried reading through the thread, but I came out more confused then when I went in I just started a sketchbook and there's no thumbnail showing up in the main forum, even though I attached all my images using the attachment manager. Is there some extra voodoo I have to do to get it to use the attachment in my latest post as a thumbnail?
I have the same problem as soulburn3d. Hope someone can offer a solution
Actually, I figured it out a few weeks ago. The thread is given a thumbnail based on the attachment to the FIRST message of the thread. So even if you add a new image to the thread in a later post, you must go to the 1st post in the thread and replace the attachment there with the thumbnail of your new work that you want to appear as the thread thumbnail.
It's confusing as hell, but I assume it's a limitation of this forum that it can't figure out your last post to a message thread and use the attachment from that.
