i think that the search results should have thumbnail images (like in ebay) so i can see if i want to go into a post at a glance, it is so hard to wade through the search results here at craftster when you have to read the titles and then click into each one! especially if its a popular topic, or an old one!

When people add a tute or images to their post their could be a button to check "use this photo as cover" and this is the image that would appear in the search function.

Also you would select search posts with "images only" - this way you would only get posts listed that had pretty pictures, rather than peoples discussions from 2 years ago! Smiley

just an idea but i would love to see it happen!
i love the scroll images that appear at the top of the forum lists, i always click there!

Have you explored the advanced search options?  You can select "show results as messages" or add img to your search query and check then check "Show results as messages."  This will give you a nice list of image results for your search.
