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:

https://fontawesome.com/v5.15/icons?d=gallery&p=2

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.

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?

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