Add a thumbnail for your themes


Recommended Posts

This edit will allow you to add Thumbnails to your uploaded themes should work on all GL versions


you will need to edit the following files



themes/ >>> theme.json file

first lets start with the themeManager,tpl,php file


find (on mine its line 100)

 <th width="60px">Actions</th>

and underneath that add

<th width="60px">Thumbnail</th>


now find ( on mine its line 112 )

[<a href="?page=admin&module=themes&action=edit&themeName={id}">View</a>] </td>

and underneath that add 

<td><img src="{imageloc}" height="150" width="150"></td>


now goto your themes folder and you will need to edit the themes.json file

just add

"imageloc": "themes/NAME OF THEME FOLDER/images/thumb.jpg",

an example would be


"imageloc": "themes/default/images/thumb.jpg",


you can call yoour images what ever you want as long as the json matches the image name

nice idea, it can be simplified to just an image path ex: theme/NAME/thumbnail.png and posted directly with out any edit to the theme.json (to make it easy to upgrade the core)

oh while we on the topic @Dayo the view dont have any function (i removed the button as i see no need to see the theme details that dont exist xD )
