question about the thumbnails next to forum threads
<!––NOFDP (no IndexPhotos) 2856 ––>
I'm new to this forum, and I'm still exploring it, learning how things work here etc. But I noticed a lot of threads here tend to have really cool thumbnails next to the thread before I click on it. Are those profile pictures(avatars) or do folks make thumbnails for their thread posts?
Also, as an experiment I attempted to create a thumbnail/avatar for my profile and I got a message saying I'm not allowed to do that. I'm guessing because today is my first day in this forum that I'm aware of and just made my profile today. this is literally my second post lol.

thumbnails are automatically generated by the first image that's been attached in a thread.
When you make or edit a post, there's the landscape picture in the options that has the tooltip "attach image", you attach the image to your post and save it then that becomes the thumbnail.
cool, thanks! I was able to 'fix' my first thread and made sure it had a good thumbnail for it.
