Custom forum icons as a default option (in 3.2.0)?

Wouldn't it be cool if he had this as a default option (without having to install it as a mod) ie. be able to assign a custom icon to each subforum? Just thinking out loud. :)




Yes, I'm currently using a mod to accomplish this, but it would be more convenient if IP.Board supported this out-of-the-box. :happy:

Really, this feature has been available as a modification for nearly every forum script on the market since modifications began, yet only one of them (vBulletin, and they added it badly) actually put the thing in the default software. It wouldn't be too hard to code in, and it'd work quite well if it was as simple as the version DawPi made

Just have it so with each forum you add, you get an option to add the URL of an icon to replace the default posts/new posts one on the forum index, and voila, one easy feature that would enhance a ton of forums and make IPB look so much more modern (a lot of modern, somewhat stylish forums use this, as do large forums like Gaia Online).

I upgrade to 3.2 and remade my forum icon edits and other fields of that nature. I think i should post the guide on how i did it so you guys can all have a forum icon and other fields. I have been using this method since 2.3 modding the files and im going to post on how to do it or write up an application/hook to do it for you.

There's a mod for this:

http://community.inv...32-forum-icons/

I would like to see it as default however :smile: I've always used different icons on individual forums. Don't let phpBB3 beat IPB :tongue: :tongue:




He made it worse for the 3.2 series, in order for you to manage the icons, you have to visit them via the My Apps section which is so annoying that i cannot believe he did that because i need these options when editing the forum and nowhere else... so its very un-practical for me to use that mod and i believe mine is going to be better in the forum sense, not application sense.

This sucks. I am using IP Hosting and they do not allow uploads to ftp



Unless things have changed, you have Cpanel / FTP. Source files are encoded but submitted files in the Marketplace should not contain them. Access details are under your account in the Client Area.

Uh...I found it quite straightforward and easy to figure out ;) In fact I really like the icon control panel over there.
