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".

Had a user who was getting an error on VB 425 / PHP 7. Turns out one of the functions in a plugin no longer exists on PHP7.

Easy fix. go to plugin Forum Category Icons [Forum Manager Edit]

FInd the code:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change it to


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Note the error was only noticeable when editing forums in forum manager (that I could tell.)

Isn't this supposed to replace the default forum icon? If so that is not happening on my install.

Hey all,

I installed a new skin and the icons have changed place - i managed to change the template coding as what the install document stated but still not changed?

The default vb skin works great but new one it dosnt? What other coding and or changes do you think i require?

Its the talk template dark theme free from this site

PS. i can manage to change the icon size to 20-25 and it looks ok on the new style but i want the default 48 and it dosnt adjust anything else so it cuts off

You should try to post in the thread where you got the skin from. The original skin developer will have more info on the templates that they changed. Its hard to diagnose where the problem is without a link or having the template code that the skin has.

Is there any way to allow this to work on selected themes only as opposed to replacing all forum icons forum wide? Does this also show new forum icons and old forum icons per forum? Thanks.

I would think you just need to make changes in the skins you want them to show up in and leave the other skins unchanged.

Does this also show new forum icons and old forum icons per forum? Thanks.
Not really sure about that.

Thank you! I've recently updated my php version and experienced the "fCall to undefined function eregi()"-error when editing forums in the forum manager. It works fine now
