UPDATE: Apologies! That’s fixed and tested in Production, please update it and refresh your browser.
Moral of the story: don’t release things late in evening when tired! (I had somehow forgotten to push the very file that was critical for it to work!). The readme wasn’t going to get anyone anywhere fast!
Add the sidecar plugin if you want more features: - git clone https://github.com/merefield/discourse-topic-previews.git -b "theme_sidecar". This adds ‘actions’ (bookmarking and liking from Topic List) and the Thumbnail Picker in the Topic Meta Editor.
The component is live now and it works really well, thanks again!
The only challenge we have now is that "topic list thumbnail resolution level’ affects the featured images as well. So we have either featured images that are a bit too small or thumbnails in the topic list that are too large. Would it be possible to have a “topic list featured images resolution level”?
Edit: And another thing: Apparently, the Topic list preview plugin sorted the featured images by tagging date which makes a lot sense imho. The theme component sorts by last post date which makes the featured images change quite rapidly. Would it be possible to sort by tagging date? Thanks so much!
Add the sidecar plugin if you want more features: - git clone https://github.com/merefield/discourse-topic-previews.git -b "theme_sidecar" . At this point this is functionally very very similar to plugin.
I have updated to latest version of the plugin (4.3.1) and discourse (2.5.0.beta4) and noticed that almost all of my topic list previews are gone
I am able to regenerate the preview image on a per-topic basis, however this is a) time-consuming, and b) nudges the topics to the top after I update them.
Is there a way to automatically regenerate the topic thumbnails?
I really love this plugin - it’s done wonders for our forum and makes it look great. I also tried the [edit - it was a from a different author so not relevant to this discussion]TC but found it looks quite different and has less options - so this plugin still seems superior to me unless someone can correct me?
Otherwise those posts won’t have their remote images brought into the forum and the thumbnails won’t then be created.
The Theme Component is work in progress and you need the ‘plugin sidecar’ installed for the complete feature set. Actions is not yet supported but will be soon when I get a moment.
Oh, how so? There is a slight approximation made on tile size, but apart from missing actions it should be identical (aside from the tiles ships with slight drop shadows on the TC which I prefer personally).
