When i click on the image instead of showin it as
images/statusicons/Custom_forum_new/old.gif

it shows as

images/statusicons/Custom_forum_new/old-48.png

I even tried deleteing those icons which r currently in there with new/old-48.png but it still doesn't show the image.

Do you have vBulletin 3.x or 4.x?

@K!ng
You need to rename the image to:
custom_forum_*.gif

(Replace the * with new,old,locked)

You can change the extension of the .png image to .gif without any problem (if you want the same quality)

Anyhow, I wouldn't recommend you doing this, it will just increase the page load time.

Can we get an image of what you did in the Forum Manager and then a link to the forum.php page so we can check the image source code.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.
W3Schools -

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

K!ng - The instructions I was giving you are for vBulletin 3.x since this was marked as a vBulletin 3 request originally. It would seem the instructions for VB4 are different, that's why it's not working.

(new is the version when there are new posts and the forum is open, old is when there are no new posts and the forum is open. new_lock is when there are new posts but the user can't post in that forum (it's locked.) old_lock is when there are no new posts and it's locked.

Step 2. Upload Files
Upload all images to your images/statusicon directory via FTP.

Step 3. Go to Admin CP -> Forum Manager
Edit the forum you want to make the custom icons for, find the box Prefix for Forum Status Images and put: CUSTOM_ in the box.

Now save and you should see the forum icons when you view the forum index.

Change "CUSTOM_" in the file names and the box in step 3 to whatever you want, usually a word that describes the forum you are making the icons for.
The filenames for VB4 appear to be:

CUSTOM_forum_old-48.png
CUSTOM_forum_new-48.png
CUSTOM_forum_new_lock-48.png
CUSTOM_forum_old_lock-48.png


Otherwise follow the same instructions.
