Show thumbnails for images in entries and printouts

  1. We'd like to have a form that collects images submitted, and then when we print them out or view the entries in the backend we can see the thumbnail. Currently it shows a link to the image. Can this be done?

    You can't edit the back-end in that way. You could create WordPress posts with your submissions and then create a custom template to display them and print them, and that could include a thumbnail.

  3. If the image is submitted as a "post image" then it shows as a thumbnail at the moment, but images submitted as custom fields do not, is there no way we could change that?

    I understand there are other ways of doing it but we would like to still use the "Entries" section to view the entries but need to see thumbnails.

    The entries section isn't "smart" enough to understand what has been submitted to custom fields, and as such, it won't show thumbnails and it can't be edited currently to display them.

    You could add this to the features request section, and I'll make sure it gets looked at for addition to the development cycle, but currently, you will have to find a different method of displaying the images for management and printing.

    Wish I had a better suggestion, but most of the time and attention has been dedicated to taking in information in a variety of ways, not visualizing it after the fact.
