Hi Admins,

Not sure if this is possible but is there a way to add the meta data to a thread so that when I drop a link to my devlog it shows a thumbnail image preview with the link rather than just the title of the thread?

I know this forum software is old and possibly cannot accommodate that.

Thanks!

Your gut feeling is correct, forum software is too old for us to find a plugin that can do that.

I think some platforms scrub the thread for a thumbnail image and sort of randomly add one of the images in the thread, but if people still updated forum software this would be cool. Oh well. Just generally it would be cool to overhaul the UI of tig but I know there are limitations and such.
