This is a hack that will add icons to your forum categories on the forum home page.

History: I was the originator of this hack back in the vBulletin 1.x days and continued this in vb 3.7.x. I have had numerous requests to port this to vb 4.x.x so here you are.

Please click install if you want support for this mod and to encourage me to continue adding features!

Enjoy!

You can find nice icons here, here and here.

Thanks to LatinoCheats for this link.

Changelogs:

1.2.0:
  • * Option to change icon location i.e. After Status Icon, Under Forum Title or Replace Status Icon.
    * Now contains a dropdown listing your icons in the folder so you just select and save.
    * Displays icon in forum manager when editing a forum that contains an icon.
    * Change icon width and height so you need to only upload one size icon.
    * Set icon position so you can center the icon when using smaller icons.
    * Dropdown of transparency settings for icons used to replace status icons when indicating "Old Posts".
    * Allows you to mark forum/subforum as read.
    * Now shows locked icons (lock icon added to download and this overlays the status icons when indicating a locked forum).

1.2.1:
  • * Now works for Mark Forum/SubForum as read!

1.2.2:
  • * Fixed: template bug.
    * Added: Now shows locked icons (lock icon added to download and this overlays the status icons when indicating a locked forum.)

1.2.3:
  • * Added: Automatic Template Edits!
    * Added: Only jpg, gif and png icons allowed. (extensions checked in forum edit).
    * Fixed: Mark Forum Read for specific forum/subforum.
    * Fixed: Now shows non-transparent status icon when "Show Locks" is enabled.

1.2.4:
  • * Fixed: Users Viewing. (This is working on a default vb style, others styles may have issues)
    * Fixed: Mark Read should now be fixed, working fine on my end.
    * Fixed: Icon not appearing when "Forum Description" disabled.

2.0.0
  • * Icon size can be set either globally or set per forum, setting is in vb options.
    * When selecting an icon in forum manager the selected icon now shows to the right of the dropdown so you can see what you are selecting.
    * If your upgrading from 1.2.4 and had to do manual template edits then you will need to revert the templates and redo the edits.

Upgrades: For those upgrading just make sure when you import the product you select "Allow Overwrite". You will also need to revert your templates (only for users of version 1.2.2 or earlier) and then follow the instructions as outlined in the install.html file.

Note: Before you ask, yes this works with all browsers. (Tested on FF, IE8, IE7, Chrome, Safari and Opera)

IMPORTANT! If you use the "Auto Template" feature of this mod and it doesn't work then you MUST do the manual template edits outlined in the install.html. This plugin was created using a default vbulletin style.

If you like this mod than please nominate for "MOTM".

It is mostly working for me on a vBulletin 4.1.11 board. I am able to apply icons to all of the subcategories, but the top level categories doesn't ahve the option to add an icon from the Forum Manager page.

For those who are claiming that it's not working on newer versions of VB, have you tried applying it to subcategories?

I can apply Top Level Icons and Subcategory Icons on vb 4.1.11, but the Subcategory Icons don't work for me (only Standard vb Icons visible, not the selected Icons).

To the person that stated this didn't work in VB 4.1.9 - that is untrue. Installed on 4.1.9 and has been working just fine for months now.

Could someone please take a look at the code in the xml and see if they can find a fix for the Sub-Forum icons not showing and post it up, as DW doesn't seem to be wanting to help out.

Yet up until 4.1.10 when you had a Subforum you could have an icon for it, I am not talking about on the main Forum page, when you clicked on a Forum which had a sub forum, the icon would show within that Forum for the sub forum.

I fully understand about the sub forum icons not showing on the main Forum home page, but within a Forum from the main Forum Home page , the sub forums did have icons before, so this was added from day one with this mod.
This stopped working for 4.1.10 onward.

So this mod is no longer working as it was, there must have been some slight code change in a Template for 4.1.10 and above.
I am sure a lot of us would appreciate If and when you have time to update this mod.
