no icon

I have successfully installed the hack, it's there, the settings are there, options are showing up, vbulletin has been changed to allow rss, but no icon is appearing before the forum title. Trying to get just one forum, "the news", number 93 , to have a feed.

Edit: news is a public forum

I ftp'd the icon to the correct directory, am stumped.

I do have a custom skin...

Thanks for any direction
eric

Looks like there is definitely something changing the "forumhome_forumbit_level..." templates. In particular, your forum links are FULL URLS rather than the normal "<a href="forumdisplay.php...".

Possible solutions for you are...
  • Try setting the position to the right of the forum name
  • Edit my mod (change line 174 to: $Sorky11_BeforeRSSFeedLink_OLD = '<a href=\"http://www.XXX.net/Forum/' assuming that is what is in your templates
  • Disable all other mods and see if that solves it, then re-instate them one by one until you find the culprit.
  • Make my plugin run earlier than other plugins
  • Revert the "forumhome_forumbit_level..." templates

For a difinitive answer you can give your user called "Sorky" admin access and I'll check the template/order/etc.

New update available for 3.8.x (still works on 3.6.x) - New options added

Make sure you uninstall the old one after recording your settings as the 3.8 version uses a different product ID
