New - User Thumbnail Gallery!!


Do you know what's cool? When RCGroups users upload photos. When it gets slow around the RCGroups.com offices, I like to check out all the photos uploaded by our users. Yesterday, it hit me: What if I could look at every photo a user has uploaded to RCG at one time? How much cooler could you get than that? I can tell you, none more cooler! So I got out the soldering iron and created a user thumbnail gallery page. That means with one click you can see every image a user has uploaded to threads, the classified section, a blog, articles and more. If they uploaded a picture you can now check it out in the new user thumbnail gallery!

The image below shows you exactly where the link is to see all the photos

I have to go now and look at everyone's images!

That is very cool. Can this feature be done on individual threads? It would make it easier to find that photo you know you saw in a certain thread.

Good idea, fun to look at older pictures for reference and being able to see the actual post it was in

Plus it shows a growth rate within a member/model and awakens more archives! Outstanding job Terry!

great idea,
Terry, I have a suggestion, if I may. The other day I was reading through a thread on a plane I was thinking of buying. It had hundreds of pages. I could search the attachments but I could not search or browse videos.

I wanted to see members videos, not the videos of the pro sponsored pilots flying that plane posted in the 1st post. I searched for hours to find some. I wished there was a way to search the thread for videos posted.

Maybe there is a way to do that, I don't know I'm no IT, or programmer. It would save people hours searching through thousands of posts.


Also there is no way, that I can see to delete old attachments from ads from years ago. They are just stuck in the system taking up space, and could be discarded

Neato, I have often retrieved pics of my models, etc., from my RCG threads that were lost in hard-drive crashes.

Whilst were making suggestions, I'd like to add this. Would it be possible to see 'all attachments' in a thread, rather then/or in addition to seeing just the 5 at the bottom of the page? I'm often looking for an attachment I've seen in a thread, but have to spend a lot of time finding it the current way 5 at a time, especially if its a large thread.

The video tool is a good idea too, can this also apply to inserted images?, images that are not hosted/attached via the RCG server?
