    Default Resizing Thumbnails in News module

    Very new to the vBadvanced CMS but seems to be an incredibly easy to use portal to wrap around an existing vBulletin forum.

    The issue I am running into is with attached images on the news front page. I have changed the thumbnail settings within vBulletin to a larger size, and rebuilt the thumbnails, but the thumbnails on the front page news module still show as 100px maximum even though they are showing as the correct size in the forum thread itself.

    If anyone knows of an easy way to fix/change that or if I'm just doing something silly somewhere any help would be wonderful 8).

    v3 of the CMS and version 3.6.8 I believe of vBulletin.

    Thanks in advance.

    UPDATE - Hmm...the thumbnails seem to have grown to the right size on their own...CMS must have it's own cached copy or something strange...ah well

    There's no type of thumbnail caching with the CMPS, so it sounds more like you were viewing your browser's cached version.

    Strange...IE7 is set to refresh pages on every visit to the page...

    Ah well...going to play around with some other stuff so people can just upload images for the news posts...the attachment method looks moderately bad anyways

    Thanks though 8)

    FWIW... I had the same problem, I think it is because the attachments thumbnail dateline is not correct.

    in adv_portal_newsbits_attach_thumb
    Code:
    $vboptions[bburl]/attachment.php?$session[sessionurl]attachmentid=$attachment[attachmentid]&stc=1&thumb=1&d=$attachment[thumbnail_dateline]
    $attachment[thumbnail_dateline] doesnt seem to work, as my image thumbs on the news page look like:

    /attachment.php?attachmentid=8&stc=1&thumb=1&d=

    (No value for 'd')

    Cheers,
    Ian

    Bump... there is still an issue with the news mdule thumbnails. When I rebuild thumbs they are still the old size in the news module only.

    Doesn't seem to be a problem for me in v3.0.1, so I'm assuming that was corrected in 3.0.0 or 3.0.1.

    I had the same problem too. I just added in the news.php module in the attachments query // Get Attachments

    attachment.thumbnail_dateline,
    after attachment.thumbnail,
