Admin CP > Themes and Layouts > Theme Settings > Default theme > Uncheck "Enable Collapsible Options on Post" or something like that.

That is controlled by language files

Post.english.php
$txt['more_attachments'] = 'more attachments';
You can alter that to the HTML to link to an image/button if you like.

Could you please be a little bit more specific about making the button??

I mean , what should i write instead of
Quote'more attachments';
, if i want to link that option to a button which is in for example: www.hello.com/myfolder/myimage.gif

Thank you very much

Someone could help me...??

Thanks

No, you'd need to alter the line in Post.template.php instead. I'll show you on the default Post.template.php. If your theme has it's own, you will need to alter that too.

Find this:
<span id="moreAttachments"></span> <a href="javascript:addAttachment(); void(0);">(', $txt['more_attachments'], ')</a><br />

Find this part:
(', $txt['more_attachments'], ')

Replace with this:
<img src="http://www.hello.com/myfolder/myimage.gif">

Save and upload the file. That should work.

Sorry for my ignorance but this sgould work on smf 1.1.4?

and what is the string to modify (put an image to)  "Reply"

Thanks

Eliana Tamerin

You don't modify strings. Do the same thing you did with this, find the name of the text string in the Display.english.php file, then search for it in Display.template.php. It'll probably be something similar to before, just stick in your <img src="url"> tag where the text variable is.

Problem Solved!

Thanks everyone

I found that the string associated with "Reply" was $txt[146]

So i just replaced this in the index.english.php :

$txt[146] = 'Reply';

with this

$txt[146] = '<img src="http://www.hello.com/myfolder/myimage.gif">';

Thanks again

I would not advise you to put HTML in the language files. Do what I explained, HTML belongs in the template files, not the english files.

It should be perfectly fine to place HTML in language strings Eliana Tamerin :)  Also I would say putting it into the languages strings would be better than hard coding it to the template file.  As if you are linking to a image with text you'll want to have a different link for each installed language.
