dont know if anyone would be interested in this,what i have done is added some small pics next to the forum title to add a little more of a discription,i have used smilies on my forum:you can create any folder name you like on your server under forum/images/your folder name,upload your small pics to that folder that you wish to use.Then go to adminCP Forums & Moderators/Forum manager then find your forum and click edit now where the title is at the top with your forums title name place this code beside it,make sure you put in your own forum address/and the loction and name of where you uploaded your pics.

You may wish to change that to <img src="http://www.yoursite.com/forum/images/your.gif" border=0>
So you do not get the box around the image.

insane,
First thing that came to mind ;)

Rickie,
Interesting and a very unique way of doing that, without mods.. although I think it would be much neet-er if it was on it's own column.

Great job BTW!

Ran into a problem, code works fine, but our thread title is longer than yours and it cuts off half of it when you save it. Any ideas?

Anyone? Ive thought of making the image path smaller by putting it in a higher up folder, but we have some topic names that are pretty long and I dont think I could do the code plus their name.

Try adding a whole new collumn left of the titles. Then make each image the same size, and same overall style. That would look around 1000x nicer :P

Nope didnt work it cut off the end, is there a way to set character limits on forum/thread titles? Could that be doing it.

How would I go about adding a new column?

Edit//

thanks for the help, Ive decided to give in and move the folder and shorten the image names. Its all working now. Thanks a ton for the help though.

Guys I haven't implemented this hack but I have something differently on my board at


But good to see someone's released it -- but I agree RsX, try putting the images all on the left and make them the same size -- as you can see, thats what I did on my site and it gives it a IMO more professional look.
