Change forum icons?

Post by jakc » Wed Dec 29, 2010 1:54 pm

I have the bones of aphpBB3 forum set up. (prosilver)

I was thinking it would be great if I could have different icons for each of the different forums I have setup.
However, i think this requires a bit of hacking?

I know that i can fiddle the icons or upload a different iconset, but is there the ability to have different icons for each different forum on the main page?

Hello jakc!

You can go to ACP >> Forums >> Go inside a category > Click the Image on a forum

And change the Forum image: to the picture you want. That will look like:

Image

This is at least what I would have done. If you change the other icons, it will be kinda hard to see where there are new posts. (If there's a lot of images to learn what they mean) ;)

Yea, I was originally thinking I would have to photoshop a whole bunch of icons (for new posts, stickies, and all the other variations).

Your suggestion makes life a lot easier.

I was trying to find somewhere where you could download different iconsets for prosilver. Any chance you have a link, Google was giving me rubbish.

Thanks again for your help.

It's up to you. It's always fun to use something you created by your own ;)

But if you lack the time, you could try IconFinder

Lots of really nice icons.

Best of luck, and happy new years!

Hey!

I tried what you said above. I have changed the icon, I have refreshed. But when I look on frontpage I see no change. But to the left of the specific category in the ACP I see the new picture. What to do?

The forum image doesn't display for categories in most styles. It's possible to change that though. Which style are you using?
