I modified the forum for mouse over graphics and clickable navigation in the, (index_body)(viewforum_body) now the new topic icons don’t show up when you post a new topic, what is weird is the locked icons do.

I checked the file names for the gif’s (see below) and they are correct, any idea what is going on?

Looks like you messed up something in template. Probably deleted wrong line.

Re-download original style and compare those files to original to see what you deleted.

Modified section of the index_body,

<!-- BEGIN forumrow -->
<td class="row1" align="center" valign="middle" height="50"><img src="{catrow.forumrow.FORUM_FOLDER_IMG}" alt="{catrow.forumrow.L_FORUM_FOLDER_ALT}" title="{catrow.forumrow.L_FORUM_FOLDER_ALT}" /></td><td class="row1" width="100%" height="50" onMouseOver="'{T_TD_COLOR1}';'hand';""{T_TR_COLOR1}" onclick="window.location.href='{catrow.forumrow.U_VIEWFORUM}'"><span class="forumlink">

Which lines are preventing folder_new_big from displaying correctly?

it is there, as it is supposed to be:

<img src="{catrow.forumrow.FORUM_FOLDER_IMG}" alt="{catrow.forumrow.L_FORUM_FOLDER_ALT}" title="{catrow.forumrow.L_FORUM_FOLDER_ALT}" />

<img src="{topicrow.TOPIC_FOLDER_IMG}" width="19" height="18" alt="{topicrow.L_TOPIC_FOLDER_ALT}" title="{topicrow.L_TOPIC_FOLDER_ALT}" />

code is correct. look at source of forum page and try to find folder image there - maybe you'll find error.

Checked and re checked all the lines, I am at a total loss.
Getting intermediate Icon display, one time it will show the correct new posts Icon, next time it will not.

I have even loaded up a default template, having the same result..I am guessing perhaps there is a corrupted file in the primary BB code, any idea where the display the folder_new_ big code would be?

also i suggest you to check cfg file - maybe something is wrong there.

Thanks for all your help, I appreciate it,

after deleting the entire phpBB folder off site, deleted and recreated the entire database, and after reinstalling every thing, it still does not display correct Icons when posting.

by Arty ? Folder icons are correct there.

This is a full install with a completely new database. (Shrug)

Yes that’s the right pathway to the BB, log in and post a topic, the (no new posts) icon will remain up. I am beyond reason as to why it does not display new posts after one is made.

You should have said that earlier.

Answer is simple - you made that post so you can't see it as new post. If you want to see new post icon you should use different computer or different browser. And you must be logged in because guests don't see new posts icons and login should be different from one that you used to post.

Ug (beats head on desk) <user error>

Question: How do I change the log in box color, its white and my text is also white?

I have set every thing to 000000 in the style controls, do i need to make a change to another doc?
