The little chat bubble icon on the left side of the section names or the icon for the browser that shows on the tab?

The easiest way to do it, is to find the images you want, resize them to the same size as the default, then rename them to the deafult and upload them, sounds complicated but is really easy.

Login to Admincp and to forum manager, click forum that you want to make an icon for it

find Prefix for Forum Status Images and adding a prefix into it.

after that you need to update an icon to /images/statusicon/ to finish

If you want to have a look, try to view my forum www.webmastersun.com to make references.

Thanks

Im not sure what I am doing wrong here. I have vb 5.05. I downloaded a post icon that i want to use. The old icon was 16 by 16, and i resized my new one to that also. I went into my current post icon and changed the filename to the one i went. I saved it, then went to my forum where a new post was made and no changes?

i think he is vb4?

fwiw tho theres a bug up to 5.0.5...

it applies arbitrarty links to the icons so you have to load one, see what false location it gives the file, then manually change location for them to work..and thats just for the post icons btw

You need to create your icons .png and then upload them thru the ftp.

On you CPanel go to -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Edit Template -> Click on CSS Templates -> Open css_additional.css

Then paste this code and click save:


/* forum icon for forums with no new posts */
.forum-list-container .forum-item .cell-forum .icon {
background: transparent url("http://yoursite.com/forum/images/css/car-old2.png") no-repeat;
}

/* forum icon for forums with new posts */
.forum-list-container .forum-item.new .cell-forum .icon {
background: transparent url("http://yoursite.com/forum/images/css/car-new3.png") no-repeat;
}

Example:

http://eurocrewpr.com/forum

What I am still missing is to add icons in specific forums. Not having all the forums with the same icon.

Thanks to vbulletin.com former developer who posted the code
