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".

And are we supposed to guess what errors you are getting?

I installed this mod on vb 4.2.2 without problems.
I edit also the fix for the sub forums icons.

If it possible that the new thread icon will be the same as the category icon?
I mean if I create a new thread in the game area then the status icon should be the same like the game category icon. Is this possible?

I really need your help, I have two problems.
Despite the fact that we can see the icons and that the Mods is working.

I have two issues :

- I get the following warning messages :
Warning: Function eregi() is deprecated in ..../admincp/forum.php(248) : eval()'d code on line 17
This message appears on 14 rows (in the forum's topic manager), which is the amount of png image I uploaded in my icons folder.

- the 2nd problem is that when the Dragonbytech Ajax Thread automatically refresh the page, the topic disappears. I have to refresh the page manually to see them appears again. It appeared since I installed your Mod.

I'd be very delighted if you could help me to solve these issues with your Mod.
Thanks in advance for your kind help!

Just installed and this is my experience as well. I'm pretty bummed because I just had an artist create all these custom icons for my forum and I can only use half of them right now.

Put the icons for each skin in a separate folder and then test for the skin being used. Then set a variable with the appropriate folder name and use the variable in the icon path. Piece of cake
