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

Very simple.

A quick suggestion would be an optional other code to use an array of forums that get different icons. I just set this up that way and can post my code & screenshots when I'm done making icons if you'd like.

Would like this but i have lots of forums.
Is there a way so that forums that don't use different icons use the default onces without adding/renaming lots of the same icons?

@Coleccromos:

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

@993ti:
Sorry there is not. This is a simple solution for having different forum icons, not a full blown hack

Your "version" does not replaces the standard images vBulletin uses, which is the whole point of this hack. If you put a link into the forum description text it also displays the image in the forum description above the threads on forumdisplay which can break the design or look not that good depending on the size of the images.
If you put the link into the forum title field (which has a character limit and could make image links impossible) it shows up in the breadcroumb and other places as well.

Example: http://crackmuzik-gfx-elite.de/forumdisplay.php?f=116

Also your suggestion does not have different status images (no new posts/new posts).

It is possible to add images into forum descriptions/titles, yes.
But if it is easier depends on the point of view I think and the number of forums

And it defenetly has nothing to do with what my code does

I must be losing the plot because for the life of me I can't find this

<img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" />

in those templates



ps.. i have edited these templates previously to change the alt1 and alt2 due to changing last column and thread and post columns around
