Ok folks.

For all of you who want Category Icons including the "new post", "no new post", "forum closed" capabilities, here is a quick and simple solution provided by Andreas

What this hack does: Instead of the standard forum icons like
or , ... you can now have separat status icons for every forum you have. It is that simple

Templates forumhome_forumbit_level_...

search:

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

Replace with

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

then create/name your images like this:

forumID_new.gif, forumID_old.gif,...

Example: forum1_new.gif

If you want to have different icons for subforums on forumhome as well:


In forumhome_subforumbit_nopost and forumhome_subforumbit_post

search for:

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

and replace it with:

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

Name your images like:

subforumID_old.gif
subforumID_new.gif

Example: subforum22_old.gif

I don't use this hack so I have no screenshots, but If anyone is trying this, it would be cool if you could provide some screenshots.

Remember to click installed

Question

A clarification please...

If I install this mod and edit the templates, will I have to have all of the images ready to go at the same time?

In other words, can I get the code ready (installed), then start creating the individual forum category images (post, no post etc), installng them one forum at a time for testing?

Thanks

Regards,
Badger

Does any of you guys know, how to DISABLE these forum icons on the main page completely?

So no icons for new messages, closed forum etc. on the index.php page....

Thanks in advance

You just remove the information from the template completely....NOT the entire template....just the information for the icons.

Do you know by accident in which template? I did delete in Forumhome.tmpl :



------

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_old.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_no_new_posts]" border="0" />

------------

and updated styles, threads and forums in maintenence option, refreshes browser, but no changes are visible..

After that I deleted alos in Forums display:

------
img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_old.gif" alt="$vbphrase[contains_no_new_posts]" border="0" />

--------

again maintenence update, again no success...



Thanks

Hello,

Been a while since I last posted in thsi thread but after finishing off a few other projects for the site I'm on I finally got back to sorting out the issue I was having as it still wasn't working with the last code MThornback had suggested to me. After some perseverance I found out it was because of the url that I had been using in the plugin code that MThornback had suggested. I had use the full url i.e. http://www.google.co.uk whereas it requires a relative url ./images/etc Just thought I'd mention that for those that come across the same issue.

Also after some more experimentation I'd like to post a slightly revised version of MThornback's suggested plugin to show you're default icons.

It's certainly not much different but it will check each forum status icon exists rather than just the new version of each. This was pretty crucial for us because we did't want custom versions of the locked icons mainly because we were lazy but it's certainly helped us anyway.

"make a new plugin on the forumbit_display hook."


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

and then follow the instructions as detailed in Thornback's post: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...5&postcount=23

So in summary this is just a slight update on MThornback's suggested code for the plugin for default status icons in conjunction with the custom status icon plugin. And remember to check if you're using a relative url or not if you find the default icons not working. A clear sign of it not working properly is all the icons becoming default as the function checking if the image exists will always return false if it isn't the correct url.

I using vB 3.6.7 and I can't for the life of me find the following code in forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost:

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

I found this in the following in forumhome_forumbit_level1_post, but it still isn't the same:

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

Any idea's on how I could get this working.

This is my current level1_nopost template:


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