How to edit forum icons in ACP or imageset.cfg

Post by wads24 » Tue Oct 16, 2018 1:38 am

I was trying to edit my forum icons, and found the below link. I do not have "Imagesets " under "styles" in ACP though. There is another way to edit bye editing the imageset.cfg file that is supposed to be located at styles/prosilver/imageset, but there is no imageset.cfg in that directory.

What am I missing?

https://wiki.phpbb.com/Templating_Tutor ... e_Imageset
To Edit your imageset through the ACP
Go to your ACP > Styles > Imagesets >
Click Edit on myStyle
Select an image you want to change from the Select image drop down menu
The image will appear in a box at the top.
Now select an image you want to replace it with from the Image drop down menu at the bottom.
The image will instantly appear to give you a preview
By default, you should select to use dimensions when changing images.
Click Submit to save your changes to the Database
You can change all of the imageset icons through the ACP, for more on editing styles through the ACP, see: Editing Styles through the ACP
To Edit your imageset through the imageset.cfg file
Place all of your images you want to use in the
/styles/myStyle/imageset/
Thanks in advance for a reply.

That's for the old versions of phpBB AFAIK,

The forum icons are in the images folder of the style, prosilver/theme/images

Make a back up copy of them, upload the new icons and purge the cache in the ACP.

The default icons are gif images, so if you use png icons you will need to make a back up of the colours.css file which is in prosilver/theme and then open that and change the icons from gif to png.

Example:
.global_read { background-image: url("./images/announce_read.gif"); }

Would become:
.global_read { background-image: url("./images/announce_read.png"); }
