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".

I have been using this mod for a long time. Besides altering where I store the icons (moved to a static site) and some weird "png" file extension thing, it has worked flawlessly, even on sub-forums. I do not recall messing with any of his code there. It has been a great mod for us... Thanks DarkWizard.

Note - We are running v4.2 and have 2 levels of nested sub-forums.

It does work on sub forums but it depends on how you set up the sub forums. I tried to explain that in post 595 but was promptly told I wasn't setting up the forums in the "normal" way (as if there is a mandatory way in which to set up your web site). If you read my posts you will see how I set it up.

Some folks need to learn how to think outside the box.

Doesn't work on Sub Forums.
Yes, that workaround is ok, but like you said, a whole load of work to do it.
That's why I'd rather pay for a fix.

I will pay $15 so anyone who can get this modification to work as per it should.

PM me for more info.

And if any other members are up for it, I say all pay $15 to the person who sorts it out.

I would be up for donating $15 to DW if he would update this mod, and if he does before anyone PMs me, I will donate right away to him.

I can send directly to you if you need to collect the money for this mod. Just PM the paypal details.
Great.
Ok so there we have it so far, any coder who can help with this PM me, to date we now have $30 to the coder who will update this to work as it should.

Ok.
So any coder who wants to make some money PM me.
We have so far, $60 to pay for a working fix.

Once a coder can do the fix, then I will get the money from the above 2 posters into my PayPal to then be able to pay the such coder.

I did yes, thanks.
Got the coder sorted, should be easy as it's only an xml file, and it is either a small Template change from 4.1.12 to 4.2.0 or a hook change.
Anyway, thanks for you help with it all.

Ummm, this is against the forum rules, I DID NOT consent for someone else to modify my code. I am almost done with my fixes but I am very busy so show some PATIENCE AND RESPECT!
