Forum Icons ( MyLs1 Style )
Mod Version: 1.00, by christian8a (Member) christian8a is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (5 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 62
Released: 03 Oct 2008 Last Update: Never Downloads: 430
Not Supported Template Edits  

This is a mod alot of people wanted me to release so here it is.

What it does: It displays an icon for each forum.

Demo: http://www.myls1.com

########## INSTALL ##########

Admin CP >> Styles & Templates >> Edit Templates >> Forum Home Templates >> forumhome_forumbit_level2_post

Find:

Add underneat:

########## / INSTALL ##########

Now the deal is that you have your own icons and you have to name each file with the number of the id of each forum.

So you go to Forums & Moderators >> Forum Manager

And click on any child forum (not subforum), for example in our case New Members, and look at the top for the Forum id... then you rename the .gif file with the number of the forum id, like: 2.gif

Upload them onto the images / statusicons folder

Now that file will display on that forum, and you go like that for each forum you have.

I have uploaded a PSD file for you to use if you need to make your own.
Is a 40 x 40 px file.

Enjoy!
Ask if you have any question.

Couldn't you also enter your code into the forum description to get the same effect but with greater control over name conventions of the icons (and one less template edit)

(same result just different method i beleive)

Yes, you can add the HTML in the name of the forum in the forum manager, but you quickly run into a problem with the amount of available characters that you can type in the forum name block. You may get the image to dislpay, but it may not display the full name of your forum. So in that case, you may have to design individual buttons for each forum...not something I would care to do.

I tried adding this to my site, but it doesn't appear to be working. I am running 3.7.3 PL1.

OK, I am very happy, I got this to work after I cleared up a brain fart I managed to self induce! Thank you very much.

My next question is.... how do I get the name of my forum to be centered in the box now and not along the top....

i'm very new and very confused, i just inherited the board and dont know much of what i am doing yet

i did that, but nothing shows up, however i am not sure where this folder you say to upload them is......???

the only upload for images i can find is the smilies i can upload an image that way.

so can anyone take the time to walk a new "slow" person through this?
