Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code  

Note: This modification was around the internet and nobody knows who the author is, so I post this here because I thought this would be useful.

This modification allows you to set up a custom icon per each subforum in your forum.

1)Go to Admincp->Styles and Templates->Locate the style where you want to apply this modification->edit templates and find the forumhome_forumbit_level2_post and find:

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

and replace it:

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

2) Now Upload the images per each subforum

First, create a folder in your main root (along with admincp, images, includes,etc) and call it icons and inside that folder upload your images with .PNG format.
Second, each images must be renamed with the subforums ID


To find the ID of the forum you should look at "Forums & Moderators" and edit the forum that you want to see your ID and at the top, next to the forum name you will see its ID number.

For example:

Attachment 147432

As you can see the subforum ID is 236 so the image you want to display for that subforum must be called 236.png and the result is this:

Attachment 147433

Thanks for sharing, but you do realize you can do this in vBulletin by default?

ACP --> Forums & Moderators --> Manage Forums --> Edit Forum -->
Prefix for Forum Status Images
