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.

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