Hi, for a project I'm developing with vanilla forum, I want to have option to allow user to add featured image in vanilla forum post. I want this featured image to be displayed on homepage along with all the pposts that are defaultly displayed (without any featured image). As I'm relatively new to vanilla forum development, I'm unable to figure out: 1. How do I Provide user the option to upload featured image with each post at the time of posting new. I've tried using file upload plugin, but this inserts image in "gdn_media" database table having no connection with discussion ID. 2. How to customize select query of vanilla forum to retrieve additional field, if I had to get featured image say from media table or a custom-made table of mine. As the requirement is a bit urgent, solution shall be highly appreciated. Thank you!

      Please start a discussion for that questions. But for a start look at GDN_Media ForeignID and ForeignTable. The second question should better be answered in a discussion
