Question Thumbnails in right of the content

First of all i would like to thank you all for this great work...

After i purchased the photoplog, i've did many custom edits to make it usable for movie review page. Then suddenly i heard about this script. And wow, its what am looking for. So thanks to all who did this script.

And am really curious about if Morgan is an alien or human. He is everywhere... He helped me a lot with photoplog. (my username there is : seamus) Thanks again...

I would like to learn if it possible to do something like i tried to describe below :
I will make a new custom container at right of the content. And this container will include lets say 8 thumbnails with 20x30px size. These thumbs will be the screenshots of the movie to give more information about the movie. And it will be highslide like in photoplog. So when a user click one of these thumbs, it will show the original size of the picture in highslide mode.

Even if highslide is not possible, is it possible to upload screenshots in newthread template and show these screenshots in small thumbs mode inside the container which will be located at the right side of the content ?

Thanks in advance...
Best regards

I did above customizing with highslide. But to use highslide, i've changed the content of "GARS_custom_thumb_row" template.

The original content of GARS_custom_thumb_row template :

	<if condition="$itemtitle">
	<td align="center"><a href="$value[1]" target="_blank"><img src="$value[0]" class="inlineimg" alt="" border="0" /></a></td>
The customized content of GARS_custom_thumb_row template :
<a id="thumb1" href="$value[1]" class="highslide" onclick="return hs.expand(this)">
	<img align="center" src="$value[0]" alt="Movie Screenshot"
		title="Click to enlarge the picture..." height="50" width="90" /></a>&nbsp;
But then suddenly i realized that, its not a good idea to change the original template due to now i would like to create a new template which will just show the poster of the movie. And the size of this thumb will be bigger than what entered in above customized template.

So i would like to learn if it is possible to duplicate (copy) the original GARS_custom_thumb_row template, so then i can rename the customized template.

There is an add-on to show PhotoPlog random thumbs in GARS here. It comes with the following settings:
  • Enter comma separated category IDs from which to pull images. Example: 5,6,7
  • What is the maximum number of images to show? A positive number is required.
  • Select horizontal or vertical for strip direction.
  • What size thumbnails should show in the strip?
And the thread tells you how to get random images from only the author of the first post to appear, if you'd prefer than instead of any random image. To add the Highslide effect to the add-on, you'd need to edit the photoplog_random_thumbs.php file in the /display directory, no need to edit the GARS_custom_thumb_row template.
