thumbnails in "share your creations" section

a.non34 » April 18th, 2015, 11:33 pm

I think this can be good to make more attractive the section and more easy to use or if someone is too lazy and dont read the title.
Some times i want to download skins but i don't known which skins download.
I'd like to know before how looks the skin to decide if download it or comment.
Greetings :3

Not something the phpBB software that runs the forums can support.

We certainly encourage folks to include an image of their creation when they post, but it can't be set as some kind of thumbnail in the list of posts in the topic.

I hope you understand me, the English is not my native language and maybe I'm not so good.

I´d like just a preview beside the title of the skin. That previews are something that i like from some sites (such as Scenebeta.com or taringa.net) can make the forum more attractive and easy to people who as me are not very good with the english it (i think) can improve the navigation in the site.

It's just an opinon :D

Sure. I understand. Just not something can enforce or even support in this software. This isn't some kind of "gallery" software, or something custom made like deviantART, it's just "forum" software from phpBB, and we have to live with what it is. Making a lot of custom changes destroys our ability to upgrade the software.

the last option is than the user can choose an image for the post like preview.
If this is neither possible, i thank you for your time to answer.

Nothing like that is possible. Sorry. The "Share Your Creations" topic in the forum isn't any kind of special thing. It is just a "discussion thread" in a forum. The idea is for folks to add posts with subjects like "Here is yet another Iron Man HUD skin!" Then in the body of the post they can describe the skin, provide a link to the .rmskin and attach an image and that is what this environment supports.

Posts are like an email. They have a "subject" and a "body". That's all it is.
