Adding a preview image on discussion list

edited October 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Hi, I'd like to know if is there a way, or a plugin, to do a particular thing I need on my website: adding the choice to show a thumbnail image below every topic title in the homepage (discussions list).

Not the author avatar, I mean a different picture for every post, like in Wordpress for instance. It could help the reader to better understand what's the topic of the post before opening.

Is it possible? It would be ok even manually uploading the picture via ftp after sending the post, in an /images directory, named with the post number, for example, and adding a sort of dynamic link in the template, like:


(I don't know if it's possible in php).

Thanks for any help.
