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".

Donations are gladly accepted!

I understand your point but I have other mods I am working on that will pay for my time. I have had only one donation for this mod and it is sincerely appreciated and I am not asking anyone to donate but I have put a lot of time into this already.

This mod is far greater than anything like it to date....

Try to find some high quality icons and it will look better otherwise just turn off the transparency.

True but I cannot recode this to accept other icons now. Try to find some better icons with higher resolution.

I upgraded to the new release and now no icons show in my drop down list. I'm running vbulletin 4.0.4. I went in and reverted the templates and copy and pasted in the install file.

This shows at the top of my vbulletin "Forum" page:


Warning: asort() expects parameter 1 to be array, null given in [path]/admincp/forum.php(240) : eval()'d code on line 20

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/admincp/forum.php(240) : eval()'d code on line 21

Thanks

Nevermind, I found out what was wrong. I second LatinoCheats' link. I got a lot of icons from there.

Great mod. Installed and nominated.Definitely beats replacing with your custom icons. I use custom icons and every time I upgrade I have to replace my custom icons because they get overwritten.

Hey Dark_Wizard, Is there any place I can go to donate? This one needs to be supported!!!

works like a charm.

I would suggest clarifying the instructions for those with previous versions installed.

Simply revert the modified templates to their originals, import the product (allowing overwrite), and then go into the options menu for the mod, and select auto-template edits. Save. Done.
