  • Thumbnails

    Hi,

    I have recently taken over the admin of a board, and at present uploaded pictures in posts show as thumbnails.

    The question has been asked by members "can we have full sized pictures in our posts" as was the case with vB2.

    Images are stored in our file system, not in the database.

    My questions therefore are:

    a. if thumbnails are disabled do pictures posted appear as full size pics or just links?

    b. as we are on a fairly small bandwidth, is the thumbnails option lighter on data transfer than full sized images would be.

    A) Yes, the entire image is shown inline when thumbnails are disabled.

    B) I imagine thumbnails would be lighter on bandwidth as it allows for attachment browsing without loading the full image.

      Thanks Jake.

      If I disabled thumbnails, what would happen to the existing thumbnail pictures already posted? Would they appear as full sized pictures, or links?

      Also if I found that by disabling thumbnails our bandwidth was being stretched, could I switch back to thumbnails and if so what would happen to the full sized pictures posted.

        Full-sized.

        Yes, they would show as thumbs again, but you would need to rebuild the thumbs for new images:

        Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Thumbnails
