bbPress Topic Thumbnails

Description

This plugin adds support for Topic Thumbnails with bbPress. It works by retrieving the first image from each topic and displaying it alongside the topic title on the index page. Thumbnails are sized according to the default ‘thumbnail’ size in your WordPress media settings. The images will also resize appropriately if you’re using a responsive WordPress theme.

This plugin works with GD bbPress Attachments and most other bbPress image management plugins.

If you enable this plugin while bbPress is disabled (or not installed) it will display a warning message.

Screenshots
