Did you remember to press the Save button after entering the image's URL?

Code:
#i_icon_mini_message {
background-image: url(LINK TO IMAGE);
width: 89px;
height: 50px;
}
#i_icon_mini_message:hover {
background-image: url(LINK TO IMAGE);
width: 89px;
height: 50px;
}
#i_icon_mini_new_message {
background-image: url(LINK TO IMAGE);
width: 124px;
height: 50px;
}
#i_icon_mini_new_message:hover {
background-image: url(LINK TO IMAGE);
width: 124px;
height: 50px;
}

I found these types of codes in your CSS is a lot more customizable. Just delete the images out of your photos in your acp

Delete the image in your pictures. Delete anything in the new message/message catagory.

Then go to your CSS and add that code in it. Make sure you replace "LINK TO IMAGE" with your URL to the image you want to be used. The first two codes are for the messages button, the second two are for new messages.

Hello,

You need to upload this first and get its image url then paste it to the 'New private messages' field.
If it still doesn't work, please post the image url as instructed above. Thanks Smile

Lynn, you have to upload the picture of that button to a photo hosting site such as "Servimg", "Photobucket" etc. Once you have done that, if you hover over the image in your hosting site it will give you some code options. You want to copy the direct code and paste into your CSS to replace the URL for the existing button.

Copy and pasting the image doesn't work, you need the URL.

Look at post #3 from EverEffects. Where his code says icon_mini_newmessage, you have to find that in your CSS and then paste your photo code in place of where it says: url(LINK TO IMAGE)
