Forum Icon Accepted Extensions


Recommended Posts

Just a quick suggestion but when customising forum icons, I find that conventional images just do not do the job. Is it possible to allow "SVG" files to be uploaded to this field, (And if not can it be made possible?):


A SVG file will remain crispy looking no matter what resolution or screen size it is, hence why I am asking.

Here's a test/proof of concept I did by directly editing the icon filename in PHPMyAdmin for the forum. As an SVG it is responsive much like the rest of the site, not only that but its smaller filesizes (At least in my case) than PNGs.

The PNG of this image is more than 15KB
Whilst the SVG is less than 10KB

This is using a skin Shift by @ehren. at full zoom level, in browser and in the top right is normal size with full screen and under it, resized small screen, all on the same resolution (1920x1080):



Where as using the default IPS theme, rendered somewhat comical effects, this is unzoomed, full screen at 1920x1080:


^--- Is that something that's considered a bug? The fact that a third party skin works where the Invision Default doesn't.
