Set each category on Index to have an IMAGE instead of TEXT.

Hi! I am trying to get the category on my forum index to have an image (which will have text on it already) to replace the words for the category (as they don't really match what I'm trying to do with the rest of my site's design. I am absolutely baffled as to how to code this without messing something else up. Please, if anyone has a solution please help.

Again, this would be for a category image, NOT a board.

no no no no no....   adding html to the category or board description is a **BAD** idea.

There is a description running about on how to do something similar with CSS. do that. Do not use HTML in the description (that is not allowed in 2.1 anyway)

that is outdated advise and we no longer recommend it for anywhere in SMF.

So is there.. an actual solution that will give me what I want?

You can do it with simple tricks but problem is Curve (SMF2.0's default theme) using images to show most of the graphic output which limits lots of things. Like you can't use images bigger than 31px (height) on category headers unless you go ahead and change cat_bar / catbg into CSS based headers.

Well, I am able to do BOARDS with CSS code, but is there a CSS code for this ANYONE knows of?
