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".

Do you know a solution for that?
Are you saying that when you do not have an icon specified for a forum you are getting the error symbol? If that is the case then simply create an icon for the forum or change the code and add an IF statement that only displays the icon if an icon is specified for the forum.

Anyone have any idea what to do?
Anybody?

Looks like you may have a line break in there somewhere.

Check the templates

forumhome_forumbit_level1_post
forumhome_forumbit_level2_post

and scan for {vb:rawphrase viewing}

See if you have any line breaks like <br> before {vb:rawphrase viewing}

It could also be a </span> or </div> ending tag in the wrong place. There's a number of things that could be causing this.

Thanks for tips I checked and there are no line breaks before that phrase.

I have category icon after status icon enabled so this is the part of the code that's responsible for that:


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

In default style we have:


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

When I changed that <h2 style="font-weight:bold; font-size:13px;"> to <h2 class="forumtitle"> I got it almost working because then it was like this:
Forum_name Browsing Forum_description

I couldn't get that forum_description to a new line. So after that h2 style=forumtitle I did something like this:
<vb:if condition="$show['forumdescription']"><p>{vb:raw forum.description}</p></vb:if>

Changed to this:
<vb:if condition="$show['forumdescription']"><br><br><p>{vb:raw forum.description}</p></vb:if>

It kinda works - description is in next line but it doesn't look good. I had to add <br> 2 times because if there was only one it didn't worked. It was little lower but not in a completely new line. When there are two <br> it is in new line but there is also a lot of space between forum title and forum description. It doesn't look that good.

Now it looks like this:


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

Any ideas how to make it right?

So I installed this mod about a year ago and its a great mod. Now I'm having a problem because I want to create a new style for my website. I like to have multiple styles so that users can pick the one they like the most. But I need to be able to create different category icons for each style I make.

Is there a way to do this?

Have this installed, looks great, works on all the forums EXCEPT categories, no matter what I select for the Forum/SubForum Category Icon option.

What line should I look for in my skins to enable?

You have to create the folder and add your own custom icons... Make sure you have it set in settings of the name of the folder... Try all lowercase as well.

Hi,
I have changed all icon and it's looks perfect, I am very happy with the new look
I have a little trouble in the Control Pane, when I clic to Edit Forum in the Forum Manager I have some Warning lines as you can see in the picture bellow:




Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

How can I solve this problem?
Thank you
