This will take the forum markers on the forum and place them in a horizontal line.


ACP -> Styles & Templates -> forumhome [<< >>] -> FORUMHOME

<!-- icons and login code -->

Highlight Until You See:
<!-- / icons and login code -->

Replace Code With:
<!-- icons and login code -->
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="2" border="0" width="100%">
<tr valign="bottom">
<td align="center">
<table cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0">
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_new.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_new_posts]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_contains_new_posts]</td>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_old.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_no_new_posts]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_contains_no_new_posts]</td>
<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_old_lock.gif" alt="$vbphrase[a_closed_forum]" border="0" /></td>
<td class="smallfont">&nbsp; $vbphrase[forum_is_closed_for_posting]</td>
<if condition="!$show['guest']">
<!-- member logout -->
<td align="$stylevar[right]"><a href="login.php?$session[sessionurl]do=logout&amp;logouthash=$bbuserinfo[logouthash]" onclick="return log_out()"><phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[username]">$vbphrase[log_out_x]</phrase></a></td>
<!-- end member logout -->
<!-- / icons and login code -->

Live Demo:
As I don't have screenshots yet... I need to find screenshots. All it does is take the status icons put them in a row and center them.

Nice idea, you might want to add "border=0" to the anchor though, doesn't look very nice otherwise.

I'll work on getting a setting for people to customize this...

Changed to 1.0.1 with a border="0" where border="1" was.

heheh I figured out how to do this on my own - I didn't know what the title of the thread meant :) Nice option to post for people to use though!!!

You might change the title to "Horizontal Status Icons" ... it's possible I just haven't slept enough to understand perfectly clear wording though lol :D

**Clicks Installed**

I added one thing though, so unless your logged in you wont see the forum markers. Just something I wanted. Also shifted them to the left vs centered.

<if condition="$show['loggedinusers']">

Thanks nice mod

*click install
love this
anyone know how to get the thread status icons in 'FORUMDISPLAY' to display as 3 columns with 2 rows instead of 2 columns with 3 rows? Would also like to be able to have the 'forumrules' be side by side instead of top and bottom with the horizontal line between the 'you may post'etc and the vbcode is on/off. Seems like a lot of wasted space, vertically when it could go horizontal.....
