Yeah... I had added that as an option at one point but then when I upgraded the software it broke that and I haven't been able to figure out how to get it working again. I'll definitely keep it in mind though it I have a mental break through. Wink

While we are putting in wish lists...I'd love to see the 'show only replies with images' handy dandiness in the 'show the last posts by this person' in someone's profile... that would be gravy.
Thanks so much for all you do, Leah!  You rock our world!  Smiley

Leah...

Let me start out by saying THANK YOU for all of the hard work you do to keep Craftster running smoothly.  I'd be lost without it.

While I LOVE the "Show all images in this topic" button, would it be possible to add a feature like this to the search area?  For example, if I were to type the word "marshmallow" in the search box, I would click on a button that would give me only IMAGES of MARSHMALLOWS, rather than threads with marshmallows. I hope that makes sense.

I think there was a feature like this some time ago, but it disappeared after a short while. If a feature like this is still possible, it would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks so much.

Yeah, I think it was "Search Only Images" or something similar.  You can do the same thing manually, if you'd like though.  This is what I always do (I'll use your example)...

  • Go to Advanced Search (the Search button embedded in the bar near the top of your screen)
  • Search for:  img marshmallows (or marshmallows img - the order doesn't matter since it's searching "Match all words")
  • Under Options, selection "Show results as messages"
  • Click Search

It might catch some posts that have marshmallows and a word with "img" within it, but the majority will be lots & lots of photos for ya,  Hope that helps! Smiley

PS - who knew we had a thread about a marshmallow launcher?? Cheesy

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

...by entering img as a search term.  It seems to work really well for returning only posts with pictures.

There is also that nice little tab at the top of the post that says "show all images in this topic".
Would this be the same thing?
