Automatically Copy Application Images to All Skins

Many of the larger applications include images which currently have to be manually copied into all of the skin image directories if the forum has multiple skins. This can be a rather confusing issue for users who are not very familiar with IPB.

I would suggest the ability for developers to specify a directory in which their application images are stored and then while the application is being installed, automatically copy those images from the 'master/' directory to every single skin image directory (it probably shouldn't overwrite existing images, in case the skin includes images for the application already).

I think that this would greatly simplify the application install process for many users and help application installs to move more towards a '1 click install' sort of process.

I have to agree with you on this. It would save a lot of time and confusion.
