Changing new / no new post iamges

Short version - how do I change the icons for new msgs / unread in the default vB5 "Dark" skin?

I used to know how to do this in vB4 & 3, but all the stuff I knew is out the door now that I'm on vB5 after all this time.

Danke.

You have to go to channel-management -> channel-manager -> "edit channel" go ... you will see channel-icon and could upload it. You need min version 5.5.5

Let me be more clear - perhaps I didn't phrase it properly.

I'm looking to change the icons that show up on the main screen that show you whether there's new posts in that forum (channel now I guess) or not. Can't see where I can do that.

I could not be more clear. Did you look into?

At the channel-page (most) home the speechbubble-icon?!!

Yes, I did. I saw where I can give the channel a graphic, which is what I thought you were talking about, so I didn't try and upload a graphic, but I DID look.

OK I tried this time. That's sort of it. It used to be a single pair of graphics (for on/off) shared across all forums, now they have their own, which means I need to upload the same graphic like 25 different times this way. Anyway....

This system seems to be take one graphic and lighten/darken it, I can't seem to define a different graphic for "new" vs "not new", it's the same graphic in both situations - the old way had different graphics.

Can THAT be done?

Here's what I had before - the first image graphic is what you saw if there were no new posts - the hand as closed. But if it there were new posts, you'd have a different graphic shown.

You could do with css if not a custom graphic uploaded...

That sort of works, but the display is a mess - I'll have to play with the CSS to align it properly, but this does seem to work functionally. Tkx.

That link was an old code, you can try paste this into your css_additional.css
style manager> style name> edit templates> CSS Templates> css_additional.css

Noticed tonight I had the graphics backwards. But it works still. Very thankful for that.
