in cbi-1 the child boards get there own icons. You can change the gif images that come with SMF for the no new posts and New posts. Open up the images folder of the theme you use and search for new_none and new_some.gif change those two to what you want.

Yes I understood I can swap in my own images. That's not what I was talking about.

I thought it would be better to add a table cell in between the on off gifs and the board description.

In my attached image where the red dots are. I like the on off gif files like they are. Forgive me if you can do this. I did actually install the mod and play around with it but didn't seem to find this functionality.

Well I can come close to that. If you want an image right next to the board description then upload an image to your root of smf and put this in the board description while making or modifying a board. Just make sure the link points to your image:

Code: [Select]
<img src="http://www.yoursite.com/forum/yourgif.gif">
This will put an image to the right of your red circles.

I installed manually and it was really easy. Just to replaces in two files and this works like a charm

Now to spend the next week making some subtle graphics :D

Brilliant work fella :)

Is there any chance of being able to put icons/images beside the subject headings?? ie. Instead of having the images for the board is there a way of having beside the topic heading.  Hope that makes sense!!

Thanks for this great mod btw :D

I believe...and I could be wrong...you put html linking to the image you want into the title when you create it. ie...<img src etc etc

Is there a mod like this but you can choose a different catbg.jpg (which is obviously pre made and styled) for each different category by selecting it as a choice in each category part of admin?

Yeh I've already done that but it's one for everything. It would be nice to have different ones for every category I needed to change. But I'm not sure if that's even possible :) I'd do it manually if it was.

It would be a good compliment mod for this one ;)  This icon mod rocks :)

It is possible but might take a bit of work. As for adding it to this mod....well, I have plans for the next upgrade already so maybe in a release after that. :) Nice idea though.

Bigguy is it possible to make this Mod using CSS?

It´s a great Mod, but my server is very busy lately by a great ammount of users and I cant get too much Mods enabled with php functions, in TPortal or templates (Board.Index, Message.Index, Display.template, etc)

No I don't think it is. It's not hard to install through the package manager or manually for that matter.

My problem isn´t installing it, the version I´ve got it´s the older version from 'Tips and tricks' board yet (they both do the same things)... the "file existence checking" itself for icon to each board it loads my server a lot.

Sorry for my bad english, and thanks

Claudio

Hmm, I haven't noiced any server load on my site at all. Try using this beside the board name, it does work:

Code: [Select]
