Introduction:
The Remove Thumbnail Preview Image extension proivdes an easy way to redact or hide the thumbnail preview image based on a number of criteria. Out of the box, this will show a '[REDACTED]' image for all sessions. Note that while this redacted image is shown on the page, this extension does NOT remove the thumbnail image from the actual database.

Using the extension:
Once installed, out of the box the extension will redact all images on your site. To modify this default behavior, click the "Options" menu for this extension and select "Edit Settings".

Extension Settings:

AlwaysHideBySessionID: A comman separated list of session IDs. Any included session ID will ALWAYS show the redacted image or hide the thumbnail, regardless of the following settings. Session IDs can be added manually on this page, or by right-clicking a session on the host page that is showing its thumbnail and selecting "Disable Preview Thumbnail". This option will only be available to users with the "Administer" permission.

HideByDefault: This determines if thumbnail images will be hidden/redacted (true) or shown (false) by default. This is set to true out of the box.

SessionGroupExceptions: Comma separated list of Session Group names. When using these session groups to access sessions, the opposite of the default action will apply for ALL users that have access to the session group.

UserExceptions: Comma separted list of User Display Names. Users listed here will be able to have the opposite of the default applied to all sessions they access.

SessionIDExceptiosn: Comman separated list of Session IDs. Sessions with the IDs listed will show or hide their thumbnails in the opposite manner of the default.

ShowRedactedImage: If true, show the image as sourced in the RedactedImageSource for 'hidden' thumbnails. If false, the image will not be shown at all.

RedactedImageSource: If ShowRedactedImage is set to true, the image this source points to will be used on the host page. Can use any value that would work in an html "img" tag for the "src" value.


Note that at this time you cannot have thumbnails redacted 'per session group based on user' for example. The default will apply, and if overridden by any of the three settings will do the opposite, the exceptions will not override each other.

GREAT extension! Is there a way to have it continually add to the list in "AlwaysHideBySessionID" when right clicking a guest and selecting "disable preview thumbnail"? The behavior I have observed:

Right click machine 1,2,3 and choose "disable preview thumbnail"
Observe machine 1,2,3 redacted.
Right click machine 4, and choose "disable preview thumbnail"
Observe now only machine 4 is redacted, while 1,2,3 are back to normal.

Thanks!

That was supposed to work but there was a bug where it wasn't properly mapping the existing settings before adding the new. That's fixed now in the 2.1 version. It's been submitted for publication. Keep an eye out for it to be in the store in the next week or so.
