Glad you got it. :) The hard refresh bypasses the browsers cache and gets all info right from the server.
Nice!!!thanks for the info!!

The cbi mod does not touch ModSettings.php at all.

Okay, then I'll try to install again.

Thanks :D

Have you setup all the folders right. ??? You have to set up the folders for the child boards as well.

I do not understand you


What version are you using. ???

How to change child boards icon?I was trying with subfo-on.gif and subfo-off.gif but nothing :/ Help?


You have to make a folder with the id # of the child board and put your icons in there. cbi 1 is the only version that supports child boards.


Yup,i was trying that too,but nothing..


is the folder in the right spot. Did you read the readme. Back a page or two there is instructions on where the folders should go.


hi pls. guide me I am using
SMF 1.1.4
TinyPortal v0.9.8
Theme: XD-Obstuse
Mod ver: cbi-1

I did the manual edits on the BoardIndex.template and on the MessageIndex.template

I created a folder named icons and the path is

but no luck 

so i thought since
there is an icons folder already on the TP_XD-Obstuse folder so what i did is just created a folder named 1 inside the icons folder

Themes/TP_XD-Obstuse/images/icons/1/on.gif <<(my own gif just named on.gif)

but still no luck making this mod work



yes  i did tried ctrl + F5 but still  no luck
i even tried this path


still no luck sir

i attached my BoardIndex.template and  MessageIndex.template
Please help thanks


This is were mine are:


check permissions on your folders  (icons and board_id folders)


i set all permissions to 777  pressed ctrl + f5

I copied your path

but still no luck

here is a screenshot


I have checked your files and all the code seems to be in there the right way. You say the images are in the right place and the permissions are set right also. ??? You might have to PM me your admin login details to the forum and maybe ftp info so I can see what is going on.


for some reason some of the icons are showing up but they are not in the right orders


Then you have the board id's wrong. If you hover your mouse over one of the board icons....down in the bottom left of the browser it will tell you the url to that board and the id is on the end of it


See the 96 at the end of this url.....That is the board id:


woohoo thank you!!  finally got it working

more power to you bigguy and have a happy new year


hey this looks great, but the link for the mod is not working ? does anyone have a link ?

EDIT - google is your friend...

the link is

you may want to update the first page ?

EDIT 2 I have another question...

what do I change to use .png images ? I need the images to be transparent, so what code do I need to change for the mod to accept .png instead of.gif

also, I have a theme, what do I have to change to make it work with the theme ?

EDIT 3 - I have installed it correctly to the theme, but I still would like to know how to configure it to .png :D
