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 works great on 4.1.12 too, but it just needs the Sub-Cat icons to work/show the same as it did before 4.1.10.

Good mod, but after following the instructions on installing install.html, I have a problem with the way the mod called images, not identifying its extension (png,gif, etc...).
I leave some pictures to help explain ...

If there are any suggestions to resolve this issue ... thank you.

I can't seem to find this question in this thread anywhere, but can this also be used for the new standard mobile style? That style currently has a very limited set of Style Vars, which does not include the files required for the manual FCI-edit. Thanks!

Great mod

I have created my picture size of width 400px & hight of 63px with the maximum opacity (10%) to create a backdrop picture that spans all the forum section. Whilst this looks great im unable to click the forum link text to read the forum. Is there any work around for this?

Is there perhaps a way of adding z-index as a work around?

Vbulletin version 4.1.8

Dark_Wizard, would you try to have a look and see why it doesn't show for Sub Forum icons within an actual Forum as per it did before 4.1.10 please.
There must have been some code changes for the Templates for the Sub Forums after 4.1.10 I'd think, that's why it stopped working.

Thanks.
