Hi guys

I've searched but I haven't found.
Has someone already done a kind of linklist with thumbnails?

If not I'll try to code it.

I worked on that a few months ago. Did a few attempts but generating a thumbnail from a webpage is not that easy without an external software. Found some info about using IE (actually, its ActiveX core object) to generate such thubnail but when I put some code in place, info I got proved to be wrong or at least not working on my dev machines. You might wish to start from that.

Hope it helps and of course, if you succeede, let us know :-P

You mean that you would create a thumbnail of the page at runtime?

I just thought about a picture/logo of the page, like the Microsoft sign for a link to microsoft.com.
