Before we did the upgrades to our site we had a featured photo box on our main forums home page from the PhotoPost section of our site. Would anyone know how we can get that back onto our portal page?

Thank you for your help

I assume you used a mod such as those available at http://www.photopostdev.com

Could be? But I think it was a "Random Image". The person who installed the site is no longer available to help us. Could you recommend what mod to use and how to use it?

Thank you
Thomas

I'm sure if you just take a look you'll find it easily enough.

Is it a "Thumb includer" that I am looking for? Been seeing that on the site, or does the hack have another name?

Thank you

There are many many renditions. There is a VB3 featured photos hack that places thumbnail bar on the forums pages. There are many different ones. You need to select one for your purposes

Hey Chuck,

Thank you for your help. The thing is that I am not a programmer, nor do I really know what it is that I'm looking for. Is there a step by step procedure someplace that a novice can use to set up the hack without destroying his site? Perhaps someone could install the hack for us? I don't know what the going rate for that is, but I can scrape together a few bucks if someone had the time to do this for me.

Once again, Thank you for all your help.

Best Regards,
Thomas

LOL

Well I guess what your looking for depends on your integration type
