    When looking at the home screen the thumbnails are on the left. I cannot figure out what makes one image the chosen one over other images in the thread. Some times it seems like the first image, sometimes the last, and other times its a random image in the thread.

    Anyone know what determines it?

    Edit- test photo

    Thats not always true. Lots of times its a pic from the OP. Or a pic from a link somewhere in the thread..

    @C41n Ive wondered the same thing myself haha

    I have another thread where the picture is the first one in the OP. There are other pictures in the OP, and another in the thread. Yet it's still the first one from the OP. So it's not always the last picture post. Here is the thread if you want to see what I mean.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/mt-hood-national-forest-clean-up-date-tbd.676549/

    Edit - I realize now linking the thread will not show you the thumbnail. Doh

    It's usually a link to something like Amazon or other that will come up.

    Test.

    https://www.amazon.com/Hanes-9-Pack-Brief-White-X-Large/dp/B004QO3WL0/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2UQDL2YUN0U1S&dchild=1&keywords=tightie+whities+men&qid=1595440699&sprefix=tightie+whit%2Caps%2C218&sr=8-2

    /e: This didn't work. ;)

    /e2: Yours works!

    As you guys posted photos the most recent photo became the thumbnail. I then added a photo to the OP. There wasn't one before. It is now the thumbnail.

    So this is how I think it works now.

    If OP has photos, the first photo will be the thumbnail. If OP does not have a photo, then the last post with a photo posted will be the thumbnail.

    Thanks for helping me figure it out :bananadance:

    Test.

    (it might be me, but it wouldn't be a test without it!)

    /e2: Looks like mystery solved. I've noticed that on my build thread that my first picture on first post will update, just never paid attention to an OP picture post in other random threads.

    Thank you. I am lucky to live in the Pacific North West, and drive a Tacoma where I can go out and see places like this on a regular basis. :)

    OME and worth every penny.
    I kind of thought it was OP pic, then if subscribed, it changes to next unseen pic. Guess I'll see. All I saw before was OP pic no matter how many times I looked. If it changes now...
