Without a doubt, a great job @SychO. I comment on github but it does not cost me anything to leave the translation attached to the Latin Spanish here.

Actually, the icon and the color was pretty random :P :D... but yeah, I do like blue ;).

Just wanted to test it out... see how the icons would look :).

Thanks for the mod! Changing board icons really sets the tone of a site.

I've used bigguys cbi v.05 to do that on my site. Although I'm assuming this makes it easier.

Well this is a 2.1 mod and it's not for image icons, you can set FontAwesome Icons with it :)

I didn't see an option to make it board specific, so this pretty much means that whatever you set, it changes the icons of all boards.

no I meant which mod is he talking about when he says that you can't choose icons per board, because yes you can with FA Board Icons as that's the whole point of it.

I thought he meant your mod does not work on a per board basis like mine does. If yours does, than not sure what he means. Just skip by this post, lol. I just woke up, so might be a bit slow still. :)

Yeah, that is what I was actually saying, the icon change is global, not applicable per board.

So, I went back to my test site and looked at the mod and settings once more.



If there are per board settings, where are they ???.

Ah, yes, you're right ;).



This mod is even cooler than I thought :)... oh I'm definitely implementing this on my forum when 2.1 becomes final 8).

PS: Did I miss something in the mod's description ???.

EDIT: My mistake, once again, you're correct ;).

Each board has an icon & color fields
