AMPLE Scaffolder: Now Offering Thumbnail Generation On-The-Fly

UPDATE: The software package formerly known as MBG Scaffolder has now been officially renamed to “AMPLE Scaffolder”.

This is just a quick note for all the AMPLE Scaffolder users.  Version 2.0.6 has just been released with a variety of bug fixes and updates.  But the most prominent feature now available is the option of generating image thumbnails during file uploads.  I had planned to add this option in at some distant point in the future.  But the upgrade happened sooner than later because I required this feature for another project I’m working on at the moment.  So as users, you can just sit back and reap the rewards!

I still have to update the help documentation and the feature list but using the thumbnail generator is pretty simple.  There’s a new option available under the Files tab now with a list of image sizes from which to select.  Currently, you can choose up to 12 different options ranging from 75×75 pixels to 1600×1200 pixels.  I guess the larger images are technically not thumbnails but you get the idea.  If nothing is selected from this list, no thumbnails are created.  Removing an uploaded file from an existing record will automatically remove any related thumbnails too, making it super simple to use this feature.

If you still don’t know what AMPLE Scaffolder is all about, check out the introductory post for all the details.  If you just want the latest version available, you can download it here.  Again thanks for testing and all the constructive feedback.  Every bit helps me to improve the end product.
