[request] We need pics button errrr.....

Click for full size
Ok this is the first thing Ive recommended about the site we all love and visit daily. We need something like pictured above; that would let us know that there are pics in that thread. Lots of times I just wanna look at pictures of case mods, this would help greatly and be a nice little feature for the forums.

Re: We need pics button errrr.....

How about just a gif of a paperclip which indicates attachments. It could be triggered as soon as anyone in that thread added an attachment. Or it could be added as a message icon for a thread starter.

Well then we would have people not using it or using it when there is no pics or attachments. I like the idea of a paperclip but make it automatic.

I guess a forum rule could be put in place that requires it, or a hey mod of a post could be done and a moderator could edit to add or delete that icon.

It would be nice to just browse through the images/attachments of a thread, rather than read all the way through it (if it's only the visuals you are after...)

I think that it is just to denote that there are pics or attachments in the thread....

Haven't done a paperclip yet, but I had this handy so I fixed it up first.

This one could be triggered say if it picked up on "img src=" or if the attachment had a grapic file extention. EG... .gif, .jpg or whatever the site allows as uploaded grapic images.

It would be beneficial to those with dial up and slow loading pages. They can then avoid those threads. I know I hate when my dsl goes down and have to use dial up. Some pics are just too big.

the only easy way to do this is the first poster (topic starter) has attachments, otherwise, it will not be easy to do.

The message Icon, or the automatic indication of attachments? I thought you could add the message Icon anywhere in the thread.

Many times the thread starter has the pics, certainly in certain entertainment forums and the broadband/home office photos forum.

Hosts could make it a forum rule to include that Icon if topics contain images or edit to indicate that it does.

While maintaining acceptable performance you mean, right..? I don't know how your backend structure looks, but it just seemed weird that you said it's not easy..

Btw, I *Sign*, with the addition that I think the total combined file size of all the images in the thread be displayed too(in a parenthesis next to the image or something). Maybe also or instead, the amount of images. Scan the post text array (or flag or whatever) for both img tags and attachments, so the pesky hotlinked images are accounted for as well.

It will only show up if the first post contains an attachment right? If it is a linked img src that gif will not be triggered?
