I bought this plugin on a whim this weekend, and installed it less than 3 minutes ago, and I LOVE IT.  I love, love, love this plugin.  I've been a big fan of other mods and applications by @onlyME such as his Chatbox and Videobox, but this is probably my most favorite plugin now in the entire Marketplace.  I love this.  For any image-centric board that depends on a lot of photography or imagery, this plugin is a MUST.  

This plugin offers four methods where you can add thumbnails (and I wish the description better explained this)

  1. Gallery Mode - Turns your entire forum's topic view into a Pinterest / Masonry-style layout.  So instead of a list of topics in the traditional grid view, you now have a much more colorful and image-oriented display of your topics.  
  2. Topic Thumbnail - If you don't like the gallery mode for your forum topics and thinks the change is too much, then the topic thumbnail is a more suitable solution.  It adds a small thumbnail to every topic's title, and really helps the topic view become 'alive' with imagery.  
  3. Forum Icons - If you want forum icons to use on your forum category view, then this plugin will dynamically generate those icons.  What I haven't tested is if you update a topic inside a forum, then whether or not the forum icon will change.  In any case, I'm not personally using this since I added my own custom forum icons via the built-in forum settings.
  4. Widget - This was really thoughtful.  You can add a widget to replace the boring IPS widgets (which shows user avatars) with this one, which shows the topic icon.  This is a much more useful indicator of the topic.  

At first I was kind of hesitant since the plugin costs $15, but now that I see how much this plugin offers I think it's an incredible value.  It can actually change the entire face of your community.

While onlyME was very responsive with support, the plugin ultimately had to be uninstalled and onlyME's access revoked.

I fear there may not have been enough testing on high traffic sites, enabling this plugin caused many very slow queries which ultimately crashed my entire site. To get the site back I needed to kill nginx and then disable the plugin using a query. Each time this happened it was properly catastrophic with totally unresponsive site and difficulty connecting to the database.

On the final crash onlyME accessed the admincp and enabled the plugin after being asked not to and it took 20 mins to get the site back again. 

I simply cannot recommend this plugin to anybody with a busy site. 

I'm sorry for the bad review onlyME but I dont want others wasting their money on this as I did.

Excellent application that does wonders for making a forum look completely different.  Takes a little bit of effort pre-posting to make sure you have all images in place and importantly, the same size to ensure continuity. This is definitely one to buy and support is fantastic; brilliant!

Very pleased with this plug-in, and especially the support provided by @onlyME

He patiently helped me set it up and get it going -- and it makes a huge difference in engaging the user, similar to how a topic preview works -- as the old saying goes "a picture is worth 1000 words" and this plug-in does that.

I was so impressed that I had him create a similar custom plug-in for Pages records used in articles or other content databases and displayed on category record listings and Feeds. 

My users LOVE this whole visual preview of content and I'm seeing more interaction and use!  Well done!

If your community is based on, requires and/or relies on images, this plugin is necessary. I couldn't  live without it. It makes everything much more appealing to users. I'm using both versions, for IPS3 and IPS4.  

I specially like that search results include the featured image in the lists. This way searches no only look more real,  but users can find what they are looking for much faster. Of course, as long as your community requires a lot of visual content like mine. 

The widget for IPS4 was like an easter egg. There is nothing similar like this in IPS3. Only that widget is worth the money, since again it adds more visual content to your sidebar and everything has a different look than using the regular topic field.

Very nice layout for a more visual look rather than the traditional text based layout.
