Solved Question, switching icons of topic with topic icons?

Post by PlatinumWata on December 17th 2010, 2:45 am

We have a scanner icon of topic, and next to it their is the lock topic. How do I make it where if I choose the scanner icon, it replaces the locked topic, like on these forums,.....

When I click solved on topic icon it replaces the other main topic icon of that ball?

ACP > Display > Skins > Choose a theme > Version

Try that, you will not loose everything. It just might replace the theme with the version default theme

I don't think so since template editing on phpbb3 is not possible.

What do you mean template editing isnt possible?

Does, that mean I can use the icons I had to my phpbb2 forum? can I change colors on the new phpbb3?

Only the template editing which is not possible on phpbb3 but you can still use the topic icons, and you can still change colors via CSS on:
Admin Panel > Display > Colors > CSS stylesheet

Yep it's just the same, as I'd mentioned, the only difference is you cannot edit templates on phpbb3. And you can still change the colors.

On the admin panel > display > Templates (You can't modify/edit things there)

If you went back to change version of a phpbb2 theme, images will reset and you will need to upload the images again.

Would you suggest the move to Phpbb3?

I really do like the looks on Phpbb2, but I really want to add the "Solved" on my forums.

I just want to insure I would get help making the forum how I like it using the CSS.

You say you can't edit through the panel, without using CSS.

What about images such as icons, and banners? Are they as straight forward to add as it was in Phpbb2? Like such using the website link for them to work?

BTW - Thanks for working with me, and helping me! Really appreciate the time!

Admin Panel > Display > Pics Management > Advanced Mode > Edit/change pictures/images there > Save changes.

Thats cool.

Also, on Phpbb2, on my forum when I click a user's name, it goes to their profile. I like the format the way it does that, and the way it looks.

Like it has their avatar, and rank in the right, and a drop down list of all their information.

Can that be done in Phpbb3?
