Go to your Style Manager and click on the Customize Images tab. From there, you can use different image sets from different themes and use your own custom images.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

How do I change the image for something that is not there?


Eg/ Changing this to this which I want as my "new post" image. Also, how do I customize.


So, basically, how do I change the image to something which is not there? There must be a way, I've seen it on another create a forum.


Please help. Thank you.

The (smaller as ) is shown on the index, next to each board, and when there is a new post, it shows . So, basically, they're the images for letting people know if there are new posts.


What I want to do, if there is anyway, though I know another forum has done it, to CHANGE those icons to be these: - so, that's  for no new posts, and  for new posts. Those are used on another forum, who say they "Have to find the physical file in the sever where the is sorted, and change it to what you want." They have payed for their own domain now, so I was wondering whether you could do this under the create a forum hosting?


It would be nice to have the new post image changed to that, as that icon is an ammo can, which is a container for the hobby behind our forum, Geocaching.

Save the image file you want to use, upload it to your own hosting site (eg: photobucket) and then go to Admin>CP>Style Manager>Customize Images.

From there, go down to the New Post/No New post images (they will be listed as on.png, off.png, on2.png, new_some.png, and new_none.png). They will look like the forum default images:

From here, take the URL to the images you want to use that you have uploaded and put their URLs in the respective boxes: New Posts=on.png, No new posts=off.png,
