Catagory Icons
Tested on 3.6.1
By Adrian at Development chat.com

Current Version: 1.0.1
1.0.1 Status: Working Fine.

Hey,

I noticed a few people around the 'net wanted a modification like this, It wasn't too hard so i thought i would give it ago.

You can specify a image path/url to use for your catagory icon, if none is specified, the forum will use vBulletins default image.
See bottom of post for screenshots

Installation
Import product-catagoryicons.xml (It should make the needed Mysql tables too)
Go to Options > Catagory Icons to enable the mod'.

Template Edits
Open Forum Home Templates > forumhome_forumbit_level1_post
Find:
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" />

or

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0"

id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />

Replace with:
<if condition="$vboptions[customimg_enabled] == 1">
<if condition="$forum[customimg] == ''">
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0"

id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />

<else />
<img src="$forum[customimg]" alt="" border="0" id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />
</if>

<else />
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0"

id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />
</if>

Save.
Open up Forum Home Templates > forumhome_forumbit_level2_post
Find:
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" />

or

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0"

id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />

Replace with:
<if condition="$vboptions[customimg_enabled] == 1">
<if condition="$forum[customimg] == ''">
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0"

id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />

<else />
<img src="$forum[customimg]" alt="" border="0" id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />
</if>

<else />
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0"

id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />
</if>

Done. :)

That should be it.

To set catagory icons, just edit a forum, the image field is at the bottom.
If you have any problems, just ask.

If you use it, please click install (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/vborg_miscactions.php?do=installhack&threadid=127426). :)

Thanks.

Ok Great hack buy im having a few problems first one is this you say in forumhome_forumbit_level2_post replace this

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" />

But my template is like this

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0"

id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" /> I replaced that with your code and this is what happened to my icons Thanks Alot.

Hi

I was about to install and i see i have the same code as ChavMagnet

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" /></td>

Could you please advise as to the best way to tdo this please as i do not know what functionality the extra bit of code i have does and i do not want to break something like normal lol

Adrian.
24 Sep 2006, 14:21
If you have...

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0"

id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />

Replace it with my code, it should work fine...

Just make sure, you are not replacing <td> </td> <tr> </tr>

EDIT: Also, make sure you have the mod' enabled.

Hi m8, Ok done that and seemed ot go ok,
Can you take a look at the image please, i take it the forum manager aint meant to look like that?

Also i have added an image, yet it dont show the image, it just removes the original

Adrian.
24 Sep 2006, 15:15
Sorry about it having no description on the field.

I was in a hurry to finish this mod' up for someone before i had to go out.

If you import the .xml attached (Updated), it should add the description.

You can currently set a custom image for subforums...

Or do you mean, set custom images for the subforum list on forum home?

Thanks a bunch for you work.

I agree with Luke. It's just that without the ability for the icon to change with the different status' of the forum in question's read marking it takes away a rather important functionality of knowing if there are unread posts in said forum.

Hey,

Does no image display? If so...

Enable the modification
Do the template edit
Enter the URL to your Image. Which you should have already uploaded...


If the problem still persists with the image URL inplace, it could be due to if you have your forum in a directory. eg /forum.

If so, put /forum/ before your image URL.

http://www.maksazone.com/images/statusicon/

That is my Image URL where should i enter that url? i think it's default one isn't it?

File names for images:

forum_(forum id).gif

E.g: forum_45.gif

Is it okay?

i think it's correct one.. but don't know wat is the problem....

any help?

Hi,

Ok, lets say you have a car catagory...

Upload a image with anyway name, but too keep it simple, call it car.jpg,
upload it into anyway directory, (for the sake of this explanation, upload it into /images/statusicon/"

Now, enter in the text field, "/images/statusicon/car.jpg"

:)

http://www.golpo.net/forum/ is not using this hack.
It's just template edit, right click on icon in that forum, you will see that file name is using forum id, example forum News And Announcements has id 2, so the image name will be 2.gif

I hope you understand what I'm talking about :)

you need to edit
Forum Home Template > forumhome_forumbit_level2_post
look for...
<strong>$forum[title]</strong>
add before...
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/$forum[forumid].gif" align="absbottom" alt="" border="0" />

then upload the gifs to buttons folder (mine is under ~forum/images/themename/buttons/)
the filenames should match the forum id's(e.g 1.gif, 2.gif,..)

i only wanted 3 icons on my forums so the rest of the images i uploaded are just 1x1 blank gifs or spacers.

www.questlife.net/forum check Console Gaming
i added them yesterday after seeing Deska's post about golpo.net lol so thanks i guess :)

Hi,

Did you replace
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" />
with my code....

try the other option in my installation post.

Replace:
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0"

id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />

with my code instead.

So, when you specify an icon with this hack, the icon doesn't change to another specified icon when there are new posts, when it's locked, etc.?

If that's the case, how can you tell if there are new posts, if the icon doesn't change? I noticed someone requested this a few posts up. I agree. That would be an awesome addition, and would make this an absolutely perfect hack.

Just place the images into your description and position them with CSS

That is what I did for my forum images: www.patientenfragen.net ;)


About this hack, I realy would like to use it, but I would at least need new_post and no_new_post to be able to be specified.

Installed an works pretty good on vB 3.6.3 ;).
Do you think you can do something to have a on/off icon topic on the hack ?
It would be per-fect if it's possible :).

And also, if you could add the possibility to change the subforum icons in forumhome page ;).

Thanks a lot, very good hack !

It works great but How do I get it to shade pick between 3 items so if the catagory is has been read or unread. Im not really concered about the locked on Just the other two. Otherwise it works nicely..

What is the trick to take a larger image and downsizing it so it fits the 50 x 40 size that that seems to be.

This mod is realy great!
I have added it recently to our forum -> http://forum.team-mediaportal.com

Would it be possible to expand this modification, to define custom category icons for "forum_old" and "forum_new"?

which means, haveing the same functionality with the custom category images, as with the main vbulletin feature, to see if a forum contains new posts or not.

Hi Adrian,

I used to have something like this installed for version 3.5.4 which looked like the attached image I have.

The image here was to the right of the status icon, thus allowing the users to know of new posts. After I upgraded to version 3.6.4, I found your hack, which works very nicely btw, but instead of being to the right of the status icons, it replaces the status icons.

Is there a way to make it so it's to the right, like I had before?

Many thanks,

~ Domokun

- Image below was the older one I used to have for 3.5.4 -

03 Dec 2006, 14:33
What I had was an older version for vB 3.5.4. I'm also stuck on trying to figure out how to get it to look like this since I just upgraded to vB 3.6.4

~ Domokun

p.s. I was kinda hoping Adrian would have our answer ;)

Smoothie
03 Dec 2006, 16:03
This looks great, but the one problem I have with these types of modifications is you lose the new/old icon to show which forums have new posts and which ones don't. IMO that's important and it's the only reason I don't use this.

I used to have something like this installed for version 3.5.4 which looked like the attached image I have.

The image here was to the right of the status icon, thus allowing the users to know of new posts. After I upgraded to version 3.6.4, I found your hack, which works very nicely btw, but instead of being to the right of the status icons, it replaces the status icons.

Is there a way to make it so it's to the right, like I had before?

Many thanks,

~ Domokun

- Image below was the older one I used to have for 3.5.4 -

I would like to know as well but for the subforums.

this is what i found few pages back that will work on the main forum page

you need to edit
Forum Home Template > forumhome_forumbit_level2_post
look for...
<strong>$forum[title]</strong>
add before...
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/$forum[forumid].gif" align="absbottom" alt="" border="0" />

then upload the gifs to buttons folder (mine is under ~forum/images/themename/buttons/)
the filenames should match the forum id's(e.g 1.gif, 2.gif,..)

OH MY GOD. I'M A MORON :classic: Yes, I am I tried and tried to get this to work. I gave up. THEN, I saw a little something important.

Just reminder, folks, DON'T FORGET to switch the sucker ON in your Vbulletin Options at the top of admin :knockedout:

This is the most wonderful hack. I love it. Thank you.

Im trying to setup this for my subforum image icons, only. However it's not working: http://www.doubleyellowcard.com/premiership/

<li style="margin-left: -10px;"><a href="forumdisplay.php?$session[sessionurl]f=$forum[forumid]"">
<if condition="$vboptions[customimg_enabled] == 1">
<if condition="$forum[customimg] == ''">
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />
<else />
<img src="$forum[customimg]" alt="" border="0" id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />
</if>
<else />
<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />
</if>
</a></li>

<if condition="$childforumbits">
<tbody>
$childforumbits
</tbody>
</if>

Edit: Sorry, being the dumbarse I am forgot to switch the 'Catagory Icons' setting on.

This hack sounds totally great but is also not usable for me because the "new post" / "no new post" feature is more important then having own images for every forum.

I really would love to see this implemented.

I would nominate this HOTM then ;)

KURTZ
05 Jan 2007, 14:31
agree, cause the category icon must go after the "new post" icon like i say previously ... :)

StarBuG
05 Jan 2007, 17:05
No replace the icons like it is now is ok with me
(that is exactly what I am looking for).

We "simply" need to have the possibility to add 2 other graphics per forum.
One for no new posts and one for closed ;)

Placing icons next to it can be done like this:

Create your graphics and name them ForumID.png (e.g.: 2.png)

Then place


<img src="http://www.yourForum.com/images/statusicon/$forumid.png" alt="" class="sectionImages" />


next to


<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />


in the templates
forumhome_forumbit_level2_post
forumhome_forumbit_level1_post
forumhome_subforumbit_nopost
forumhome_subforumbit_post

depending on where you want it.

If you want to modify something via css, create an additional css entry for .sectionImages

Hope this helps

StarBuG

ps: I use this methode for my forum images here: http://www.patientenfragen.net
Just the placement is a little different

06 Jan 2007, 10:34
Just as a question, can this mod be updated to give the user the option to place 4 custom images:
One for new posts
one for no new posts
One for Locked forum & no new posts
& one for locked and NEW posts

Has this been implemented?
Someone please tell me how.

For now, I just need an icon as default, and one when there are new posts.



Thanks,

KURTZ
06 Jan 2007, 12:51
interesting but i do not understand one thing, i would have to repeat your modification for every forum that i have on my board? so after this i find in my templates too many lines how much forum that i have?

StarBuG
06 Jan 2007, 19:28
@admin0: no its not implemented yet. Only one Icon per forum

@KURTZ: you only need to install this hack once, but then you need to define an icon for every forum.

@trickfly: google for free icon libraries or such

KURTZ
07 Jan 2007, 12:14
you only need to install this hack once, but then you need to define an icon for every forum.


yes for every forum and in 4 templates ... so if i've 10 forum i must do 40 modifications right?

thx for the suggestion Star :) but it's too much job for me, maybe in future ... anyway thx :)

PS. i know the ctrl+c/ctrl+v function :D but i prefer a automated (or simly) hack

Ok folks.

For all of you who want Category Icons including the "new post", "no new post" capabilities, here is a quick and simple solution provided by Andreas:

Templates forumhome_forumbit_level...

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" />


Replace with

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum$forum[forumid]_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" />


then create/name your images like this:

forumID_new.gif, forumID_old.gif,...

Example: forum1_new.gif

If you install this, you don't need to install the Catagory Icons hack!!!


EDIT: I have released this as a separat hack Simple Category Icons (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=138783)


Greetings

Question....

As I said it works great and users like them, but I've been getting one common complaint.

They form a permanent replacement and they circumvent the code used by vBulletin which replaces them with others, showing for example there's new posts in a forum to read.

Before we get too much further, I want to check and see if there's any way this code can be modfied and integrate better, so we can have icons that change with forum status.

Thanks

Regards,
Badger

It would be great if these could be more like forum icons and then we could keep the category icon which shows if there is a new post.

I have a similar setup on my phpbb site. Check out the index:

Yup .... :up:

If there was a second "filename" field in the AdminCP entry for the forum (like the author did the present one), that could be used for an icon to represent a forum with NEW posts, that would work very well.

Thanks

Mine is going a bit crazy with the icons not showing and throwing the other out of whack.

My code when i search the template is

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0"

id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" />

it is the second option on both of them.

Can someone paste their two templates for post1 and post2 in as opposed to cutting and sticking code in, i think i may take out something that aligns it.

This is a top mod and i have been wanting it for ages.

Well done to Adrian.

Many thanks in advance.

It has the ability to show new posts, and have the category icon at the same time!

Overall, The best option would be for this hack it to have an alternative image when there is a new post / no new post.

Thanks for the mod. It's just what I'm looking for.

A couple of questions. Does it work in 3.6.8? And I want to replace all the category icons on the main page of my forum with just the one icon rather than a number of different icons, will your mod enable me to do that?

Thanks again.

In my eagerness to get my board looking just right, I decided to take a chance and install the product. It's working beautifully. So, yes, the product works with vBulletin 3.6.8. A big thank you to the designer for his fine work.

By the way, this is the first product I've installed on my board.

Thanks for posting this, worked great for me. However, I would like a small space between my thread icon and the title (right now the image is actually touching my title). Any ideas how to get a small gap in there?

In 3.7 you can set up a custom Prefix for Forum Status Images which basically a native way to choose individual forum category icons.

I tried to install it on my local machine running vb 3.7 RC3, but I think this mod is not compatible with the 3.7 version of VB, even I unable the mod from the vbulletin options menu, but the image fields didn't appear in the Edit Forum page (I think the author need to update the hook locations?)

Maybe I'm doing things wrong here, but I have checked, and double checked and I still can't get it to work in 3.7.

I'm using the iPhorum skin as default with some tweaks.. So I changed to the default skin. Made the template changes by replacing the code. The plugin is already enabled, and imported.

I goto Forum manager, click on a sub section to edit it. Find Custom Status Icon Settings.
Set: New Posts: Replacement Image for 'forum_new' to: /community/iPhorum/customicons/cog.jpg

www.domain.com/community = my forum location

Hit save, and no change. Any ideas?

Can this be used with subforms - not on the main page but if you click the forum name and you get to the page with the list of sobforums - this is where I want the icons...

You don't need this for 3.7. It's now a build in feature.

User image_prefix now and create five pictures with the name prefixforum_old.gif and more.

Because of this new feature this Hack did not work.

This is correct. Just go into the forum admin and set up the forum image prefix. This is totally not needed with 3.7

I am running 3.7.2 I want to change the category Icon. Does this mean that the capibility is already here or do I still need to import this plug in? If already here, how do I find it.....believe me I have L@@Ked.

I can't figure out what I have done wrong. Any idea why the subform cat icon table and the forum description table would be merged into one? My homepage is not like this. Just this sub forum.
98871


Notice how the left column is very small and the icon is not technically even in it.

Installed and it works great. Thanks!

The onlt thing I wanted to know is if anyone could make a mod for this so that one could have the custom status icons still show status. Right now you upload a new pic and thats it, I'd like to have new, old, locked, etc for individual forums.

Thank you!

I'm using the BlueDefault-fixed theme on my 3.8.5 forum and I made the template edits and enabled the mod but the icon still won't appear.

Any ideas?

One of the images I am using is this:

http://sparkonline.net/forums/images/icons/Fiesta_logo.png

so I put in forums/images/icons/Fiesta_logo.png as the image url. Both links won't work though.

Friend...

This Mod work perfect in vb 3.8.5 but, NOT in categories of forums

This work perfect in FORUMS, for me work 100%, he change the icon forum_old or forum_new etc...

This Mod change the icons of the forums, the images ex. forum_old.gif or forum_new.gif not in categories but in forums ok?


Thanks,

Good Regards :up:
