New/Old Status Images as Text?

Instead of using the typical images to differentiate if a forum has new posts or not, is it possible at all to use text instead? I've searched around and haven't come across anything so I thought I'd ask here.

That's a fairly straight-forward template edit.

The template(s) that you want to edit all are named forumhome_forumbit_level... The variable you want is $forum[statusicon]. This has a value of either "old" or "new"

You can use it as text, ora more-interesting way to use it is to define a class on the "A" tag that surrounds the forum title. Like this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then in the CSS, you can change the styling of the listing, based on its status. I also added the following to my CSS:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.
