How to add seperate forum icons?

Post by VelvetMoon on January 27th 2012, 12:10 am

To put it simply, I want to know how to add a seperate forum icon for each forum.
e.g http://www.animeforum.com/forum.php

I've been wondering for a while now.

Forum version: Phpbb3
Forum link: http://www.AnimeCookies.nstars.org

Yes, like the forum as shown in the link above.
Not a icon on the forum description, but where the 'No New Posts', 'New Posts' and 'Locked' icons go, next to each forum.

if nope just goto ACP --> Display --> Pics Management --> Simple mod
then just click your categories and forums icons (new post, lock, no new post) then hide it Very Happy

Are you saying a little picture

For example my forums?
I'm not going to give outthe link. You can just click the world in my profile.

If so,

ACP>>GENERAL>>GATEGORIES & Forums>> click on a forums, then add an image were it says "IMG URL"

Make sure it's 48x48

Like this;



Try looking for some here:

http://www.iconfinder.com/

I hope this helps

No no, I mean a different forum icon for each forum.
Like the link has a different icon on each forum instead of being limited to just 'No New Posts', 'New Posts' and 'Locked'.

Well,

To be honest i think it isn't but there can be a way maybe in the CSS OR JAVA.
But im not really good at coding Java, and some what good at CSS so I'm not going to give it a try.

hmm i think u can make ur forums go this way, without table or something
http://help.forumotion.com/t21989-multi-forums-in-one

so just make forums of your choice, then name it &nb*sp; (remove the *)
and make the sub forum for each forum where u call it forum

example
Code:
              My Forum              <<category
------------------------------------------------------
&nb*sp;                                        <<forum
      >Announcement                      <<sub forum
&nb*sp;
      >FAQ
&nb*sp;
      >Introduction
&nb*sp;
      >Suggestions
------------------------------------------------------

on &nb*sp; (forum) description put the link of your sub forum
example:
Code:
<a href="your_sub_forum_link" title="Announcement"><img src="your_icon_link">Announcement</a>
or u can put the icon as non link
Code:
<img src="your_icon_link"><a href="your_sub_forum_link" title="Announcement">Anouncement</a>
or etc

make the best position for the link (forum name), so may the html goes with u Very Happy
your forums will be underlined text, so u can hide it with css Very Happy

remove the *
