SMF 2,1 RC4. How or what is the trick to change the on.png, off.png, new_some.png. new_none.png.

I have the image, resized it to 45X45, uploaded to override image.

Did a hard refresh, cleared the forum cache, did some more hard refreshes. Still no show.

Location: https://theover50goldengroup.com/index.php

Now I have a skin called Lunarfall_v0.7.3, impossible to locate these same icons, and this is the skin I like to make default.

New advice on this.. SMF 21. is new to me..

You have installed FA Board icons mod, it uses FontAwesome glyphs, not boardicons.png file.
If you want to use own boardicons images, uninstall this mod.

In SMF 2.1, these icons are located in one PNG file only.
The file is called boardicons.png:



About Lunarfall theme, the theme uses no image files, but FontAwesome glyphs:

If you want to use glyphs instead of images, you need to install separate mod:

See it working on my forum:

I usually just run the boardicons.png through photoshop and make it blank and add images to that. That's just me though.

Sorry your site will not open for me, I don't know why, says it takes to long.

But I think I understand and follow what you are saying. This version of smf and it's themes sure are changing. I did download the mod., I'll try to install, but it's for RC3 not RC4. I did manage to get it installed. I'll give it a go later on today.

Thanks for the help, appreciated very much.

board icons are in /Themes/default/images/ or in the relevant image folder for each theme.

If you tell me what images you want I'll have a go at making one for you..



Something like this? :dontknow

Those images look great. Maybe I can use those.

But there is no boardicons.png in the Lunarfail skin, see image:You cannot see attachments on this board.

I do see boardicons.png in the other skins.

This is a real learning course for me.

Thats because it uses fonts awesome..

Thanks Les. I downloaded both, install one by over riding. I change the on, off, new_some, new_none back to original.
Nothing shows, what am I doing wrong?

Bigguy

Did you clear cache in SMF. Do you have css minimized ?? Sometimes that will effect it.

Clear the cache in the forum, cleared the computer cache, did so many hard refreshes my fingers are sore.
And still nothing.

Under configuration --> Features and Options --> General.

I checked, this is default

Bigguy

Turn off your SMF caching for a sec and do a hard refresh. (ctrl + f5)

Ronald

Why do they have to make everything so complicated, especially for dumb dumbs like me.

Turned caching off, did two or three  Ctrl+F5, nothing, turned cache back on did a couple more Crtl+F5 nothing.

This is an upgrade to original 2.0.18, would this make a difference.

Bigguy

Your not a dumb dumb, lol. It happens to everyone. Yours is being stubborn that's all.

Bigguy

I would delete the boardicon.png and upload it again as well.

It's stubborn all right, If I didn't have a sore big toe, I'd boot the dam tower a couple of times.

Bigguy

Lol, that's not gonna help your site. ;)

Ronald

OK back at it again.
SMF  2.1 RC4 https://theover50goldengroup.net/index.php

I have installed the boardicons.png, over rode the previse ones.
Cleared the cache on the forum, did a hard refresh, still see the old boardicons.
How do I get them to show on the board.

Only the default skin is being used.

You have installed FA Board icons mod, it uses FontAwesome glyphs, not boardicons.png file.
If you want to use own boardicons images, uninstall this mod.

Ronald

Should I be changing the images in:  on.png, off.png, new_some.png, new_none.png, redirect.png. If so can someone make the images separate from this download:You cannot see attachments on this board.

Thank you. 

Bigguy

You have your css minified. I went into inspector and noticed the font awesome stuff in there. In css there is a spot with this as the header:

.board_icon .fabi_icon

I removed the .fabi_icon

and your new icons do show.

2.1 does not have those images. It's just the one image boardicons.png for all of them.

Uninstalled. Thanks. I'll try and see if it works. This sure is a learning curve for me.
