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".

The plugin works great when we create a new forum but if we try to edit the icon or any other matter that part of the form is not shown... is this expected? Any ideas about what can be happening? Cannot see any error logs or similar

Thanks!

EDIT: I "fixed" it by removing the if $forum['parentid'] != -1 in the plugin template... not sure if this has side effects but is working for us now

Did you make changes to "forumhome_forumbit_level2_post" and "forumhome_forumbit_level1_post" in the first place when you installed mod?

If you did you must revert them, be careful make those two a back up first.
Than disable Mod and see how it is, before uninstall. (backup your database first for any reason)

Nice mod, but it has some issues with status.

First icon transparency doesn't work when overlapped by lock icon.
Secondly double clicking to mark category/forum read will instead redirect you to the category/forum.

Anyone knows how to fix these issues please? Thank you.

In version 4.2.3 does not work or I do not know how to make it work.
This Mod I can see it without problem in Settings -> Options -> Forum Category Icons but later I do not know how to change the icons of the Categories.
That's my problem...

---- EDITED ----

Sorry! Sorry! Sorry!
My problem was that I had the forumicons folder outside of the images folder.
It is already fixed and works perfectly in vB 4.2.3 Patch Level 2.
Thanks for everything...

Using this on VB 4.2.4 and works perfectly, except for sub-forums.

Does anybody know how to get this to work in SUB-FORUMS?

Wow! I just checked level one and found that I did not make the change. I can't believe I missed that.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

This works like a charm!
