Top level icon color with new topic

by JohnW63 » Sun Mar 18, 2018 3:40 am

I have a forum running this style, and it works very well but for one thing. My main page has multiple sub pages. When one of THOSE sub sections has a topic that gets a new post in it, I would like the icon on the main page to change color so you KNOW when there are new posts. As it is, you need to go down one layer before you see a different color. I'm afraid people will miss new content because they don't know it's there.

Hello

However, another icon is displayed if a contribution has been written in the lowest level.
But I can offer you completely new Icon which are in color, which I have designed for a different style.
They would look like that.

You want to have it in color?
Then use this icon and upload it in Style Images and overwrite the current one.

I'll give it a try. I think I may edit the image to have the lower circle as Yellow, to catch peoples attention.

That worked great ! I just painted the lower circle yellow and it stands out nicely. Thanks for the help.
