Post by Yous000 on May 20th 2014, 5:28 am

I would like to assign a different image for each category I have. For example my current forum has all the same white hats:

I would like to achieve a different image on each, for example:


How would I go about doing this?

I am using phpBB2. All replies are greatly appreciatedVery Happy

It is not possible on Forumotion forums, unless someone has created a tutorial.

Nothing is impossible, I also remember seeing it various times. It might be with Java script taking the forum section link + the desired image link. But I am not too sure on how to achieve this with javascript.

What I posted is not wrong. Forumotion does not have an option for this. That is why I said, "Unless someone has created a tutorial."

Hi Very Happy

To be honest, I think you could just do a simple one with CSS. If ever, you should upload the picture on the description area and then move the titles via CSS. One more thing is that you can just modify in your templates to remove the Forum Icons portion unless you want it to have glows and stuff when a new topic is made.

Seems to be a good solution. But you've left me with some grey area to figure out Razz. Mind being a bit more specific?

Hi Very Happy

Sorry, I forgot to re-do the settings. This is what I meant:



If you still want to know how I did this, please email me in my alternate account: Email Removed

@Staff: Guys, please don't remove this because as I said, this is just an alternate account, it does not matter if it gets hacked or not and if you still remove it, my apologies as you know that my inbox is very limited AND my sentbox is already 100% full. I cannot delete my messages in it as they are important so I will give out my alternate email for use here.

Regards,
Pizza Boi

Yes, a simple CSS and a bit HTML would do.

1. Give this a try, open Admin Panel > Display > Templates > General > index_box:
- Find this part:
Code:
<td class="{catrow.forumrow.INC_CLASS}" align="center" valign="middle">
 <img title="{catrow.forumrow.L_FORUM_FOLDER_ALT}" src="{catrow.forumrow.FORUM_FOLDER_IMG}" alt="{catrow.forumrow.L_FORUM_FOLDER_ALT}" />
 </td>

- Replace the code above with this instead:
Code:
<td class="{catrow.forumrow.INC_CLASS}" align="center" valign="middle" style="min-width: 50px;" >
<style>
.category-picture {
position: absolute;
margin-left: -50px; /* Play with the number until it suites in your forum --> */
margin-top: 5px; /* Play with the number until it suites in your forum --> */
 display: initial !important;
  width: 32px;
  height: 32px;
}
</style>
</td>

2. Go to Admin Panel > Display > Pictures and Colors > Colors > CSS:
Code:
.category-picture {
display: none;
}

3. Now go to Admin Panel > General > Forum > Categories and Forum >(Edit Forum)
- Replace the Forum Name with this:
Code:
<img src="IMAGEURLHERE" class="category-picture" /> Forum Name

Then tada! Very Happy
