I'm not sure whether you're talking about the forum post images or the 'create new topic/reply'-button.
The topic post images are still there. However, the buttons have been replaced with Font Awesome icons.

Right click on the images, you should be able to see the path.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

That`s the thing you are no longer able to see the path of the image from the drop down menu.

Perhaps I am missing something? But buttons are no longer using images. It are Font Awesome icons and not images?

If this is the case what happens if Font Awesome icons site goes down, are we now to reply on another sites reliability ? if there was an issue with Font Awesome icons I suppose all forums would lose their post buttons :o

Just a thought

It goes down and nobody will be able to access it - same as any other site.

No - FontAwsome files are part of phpBB core package (they are in the assets folder)

No, they're characters or at least symbols ( and , Unicode points U+F112 and U+F040), displayed thru FontAwesome (no space there).

Yeah, that much I understand. But even FontAwesome themselves call it icons ( http://fontawesome.io/icons/ ).

@mrix2000,
But the point stands, you can not replace those with 'Christmas images', unfortunately.
You could have a look at the [RC] phpBB Christmas extension, for a christmassy touch to your board.
