@yariplus Thanks for this great plugin. I have an idea, but I don't know if it will work. Could you give your thoughts on this?
Goal: Lists topics lists that include a thumbnail picture, snippet of text, topic author, topic date, number of comments.
Most of this can easily be done. The only thing in question is making the thumbnail. I thought of the following process:
Step 1: Topics always start with an imgur url image file
Step 2: That imgur url is then pulled out of the topic content using regular expressions and resized using this plugin https://community.nodebb.org/topic/2677/nodebb-plugin-image-sizer-image-resizing (this is done within a custom template inside featured topics extended). This would allow anyone to control the image shape - it could be a square, wide rectangle, tall rectangle, etc
Does this make sense? Do you think this is doable?
