This is a hack that will add icons to your forum categories on the forum home page.

History: I was the originator of this hack back in the vBulletin 1.x days and continued this in vb 3.7.x. I have had numerous requests to port this to vb 4.x.x so here you are.

Please click install if you want support for this mod and to encourage me to continue adding features!

Enjoy!

You can find nice icons here, here and here.

Thanks to LatinoCheats for this link.

Changelogs:

1.2.0:
  • * Option to change icon location i.e. After Status Icon, Under Forum Title or Replace Status Icon.
    * Now contains a dropdown listing your icons in the folder so you just select and save.
    * Displays icon in forum manager when editing a forum that contains an icon.
    * Change icon width and height so you need to only upload one size icon.
    * Set icon position so you can center the icon when using smaller icons.
    * Dropdown of transparency settings for icons used to replace status icons when indicating "Old Posts".
    * Allows you to mark forum/subforum as read.
    * Now shows locked icons (lock icon added to download and this overlays the status icons when indicating a locked forum).

1.2.1:
  • * Now works for Mark Forum/SubForum as read!

1.2.2:
  • * Fixed: template bug.
    * Added: Now shows locked icons (lock icon added to download and this overlays the status icons when indicating a locked forum.)

1.2.3:
  • * Added: Automatic Template Edits!
    * Added: Only jpg, gif and png icons allowed. (extensions checked in forum edit).
    * Fixed: Mark Forum Read for specific forum/subforum.
    * Fixed: Now shows non-transparent status icon when "Show Locks" is enabled.

1.2.4:
  • * Fixed: Users Viewing. (This is working on a default vb style, others styles may have issues)
    * Fixed: Mark Read should now be fixed, working fine on my end.
    * Fixed: Icon not appearing when "Forum Description" disabled.

2.0.0
  • * Icon size can be set either globally or set per forum, setting is in vb options.
    * When selecting an icon in forum manager the selected icon now shows to the right of the dropdown so you can see what you are selecting.
    * If your upgrading from 1.2.4 and had to do manual template edits then you will need to revert the templates and redo the edits.

Upgrades: For those upgrading just make sure when you import the product you select "Allow Overwrite". You will also need to revert your templates (only for users of version 1.2.2 or earlier) and then follow the instructions as outlined in the install.html file.

Note: Before you ask, yes this works with all browsers. (Tested on FF, IE8, IE7, Chrome, Safari and Opera)

IMPORTANT! If you use the "Auto Template" feature of this mod and it doesn't work then you MUST do the manual template edits outlined in the install.html. This plugin was created using a default vbulletin style.

If you like this mod than please nominate for "MOTM".

Hey Bob, I finally got around to installing this today. very nice but it conflicts with Farcaster's RSVP mod. Funny thing is I turned it off, the custom icons remained and the RSVP works again.

Actually Farcaster's mod conflicts as his Auto Templates isn't done correctly. His worked fine in vb 3.8.x but it isn't done correctly for vb 4.x.x.

Hello friend! I have a big doubt. I installed the mod.

Now I have icons now

Where the climb and that folder? Or if I have to create one.

2 I have the configuration only in "vBulletin Options -> Forum Category Icons" But I see no options to put an icon for each forum or in the right pane does not appear.

And forumhome_postbit1 and postbit2 modifications, which appear in the "install.txt" give me errors on the subject, so I reverted.

I wonder where is the option to put an icon for each forum and replace any that is by default.

Thank you very much, I await your response.

You need to create the folder you want for your icons as outlined in the install.html file and then set it in the options. Adding an icon to the forum is done when you edit the forum and you will see it at the bottom.

Perfect! hehe silly me!. I had not seen the bottom and less configure option.

I see that this mod is great! Too brutal.

Are all set and CSS editing icons shrink and separate, so distinct.


Size, pixel, everything perfect and personalized. If it's worth and is very good. Thanks for making life colors, programmer! Installed and nominated. (Y)

There is a small but weird error. When I double click on a status icon, it marks the forum read but enters the category that this forum belongs. How can I avoid this to happen?

Note : I'm using "auto templates" and "replace status icons" options.

Thank you very much.
