  • Attachment thumbnails

    In the past when someone attached an image a thumbnail would appear. No all they get is a link. I can't for the life of me find the setting to change this. I am going nuts!

    Please help.

    Check to make sure your PHP is compiled with GD or that your server has ImageMagick installed and configured:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Image Settings

    Then set this:

    Admin CP -> vBulleitn Options -> Human Verification Manager -> Image Verification -> Image Verification Options

    If these are installed you will see images for them. If there are no images there, these are either not installed or you have the wrong path for IM.

    If one of those is available and functioning, then check these settings for each extension and make sure it's set to 'Yes':

    Admin CP -> Attachments -> Attachment Manager -> Edit -> Display thumbnail for this type?

    Then to enable thumbnails:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Message Attachment Options -> Thumbnail Creation -> Yes

    And finally rebuild thumbnails here:

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Attachment Thumbnails

        I have the same problem, but can't solve with this method. I've noticed that if I upload an image with JPEG extension my visitors can't see any attachment thumbnail, instead if I upload an image with JPG,PNG extension visitors can see attachment thumbnails without any problem. Logged users don't have this problem.
