In response to this thread I made a couple of bookmarklets to make it easy-peasy to generate UBB code that wraps a link to the download page around either a small or a large thumbnail.

Check it out.

I know there are some other good bookmarklets developed by other istocker and I'd be happy to add them to this page with their permission.

I'm also happy to add new ones if you know of any or create any, or modify the existing ones to support other browser/platforms.

Who knows maybe they'll just build the functionality into the forums ... but in the meantime I hope this helps.

I'v written to Apple about that very idea. Hoping they implement contextual-menu UBB and HTML formatting in the next Safari

sylvanworks, I tried your small thumbcreator. It is missing the image number at the end of the link. e.g. "id=" has nothing.

I think I used it per the instructions. Check it again.

Make sure you select the image number from the file closeup page. If there was no number after the ID then it sounds like you didn't select the text.

All it is doing is grabbing the URL of the page you are on, and then formatting that in to a link. Then it grabs whatever text is on the clipboard and sticks that at the end of the URL for either a larger or small thumb. It then formats a complete UBB link with image.
