    Default thumb nail on forum posts

    I was wondering what I am doing wrong when I link my photos from my flickr site and I don't get the thumbnail next to my title post?

    Should I be doing something, I am guessing a moderator does something magical behind the scenes so that my thumbnail appears at some point? Can I do something to ensure the thumbnail is there?

    You're not doing anything wrong Shelley, it's a limitation of the modification to the forum software. We can either have it set so it generates and displays thumbnails on images that have been uploaded to threads as attachments or from the first image linked in a thread, but not both. I have figured out a manual workaround, which is why sometimes you'll see threads with linked images (such as your own) magically acquire a thumbnail. I try to fix them up when I can.

    The easiest way to ensure your images get a thumbnail would be to attach them using the forum software, as oposed to linking them through Flickr, Shell.
