Change status icons

This is an odd one.

I want to replace forum_old.gif and forum_new.gif with png variants. I went into the FORUMDISPLAY template and changed:

<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_new.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_new_posts]" border="0" /></td>


<td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_new.png" alt="$vbphrase[contains_new_posts]" border="0" /></td>

Uploaded the png files to the correct dir, but they do not display (the gifs are still there).

What am I doing wrong?

I always save everything in PNG. When I upload the PNG into the statusicon folder, I just rename it on filezilla to forum_new.gif instead of forum_new.png. It changes the name (even though still a PNG image) to forum_new.gif (really forum_new.png) but vBulletin recognizes it this way.

Great tip. That worked.
