    That option isn't available without a custom mod. I think chuck decided not to add it for copyright reasons. This is because it would be pulling an image from other people's sites without permission.

    I'm not sure how many sites would get mad about it though considering many sites love when their links are shared. An example is Facebook. People share all the time and Facebook pulls an image and uses it as the thumbnail.

    This is a mod I would like as well. One that places the image to the right of the vote box and is the same size at the vote box.

Submitting an Answer

Please read and vote for existing answers before submitting your own, as there may already be an acceptable answer provided. You can use the "Reply" link found within an answer to submit a response to it, in case you want to expand or comment on someone else's contribution.

Including Files or Code

Sometimes it is necessary for you to attach a file or include a snippet of code for others to reference in your response. In most cases, you can .zip up files and attach them to a question or answer using Pligg's file manager. At times though this may fail, and in these circumstances we recommend using a third party host. Below we are including a list of recommended websites where you can share easily share file uploads (or snippets of code) through the web.
