Post by: lgttmfm on July 21, 2010, 04:35:31 am
Is there any way to change message icons? I have my own images that I would like to use.

Thanks for the reply
 
To further explain, I've tried that but I am still unsure of what to do next. So I guess my question is, "To change message icon images, is it as simple as replacing an existing address with the address of a new image? Because I have tried that and it is not working."

Can you give us the links to 3 things:

1. Your board
2. The image you tried to replace
3. The image you wanted it to be

OHH. I see what you're trying to do.

That requires you to use the image swapper code (http://www.ifcode.com/javascript/ImageSwapSMFv2.html).

Go to that link and put the URL of the image you want to replace on the left side, and the URL of the image you want it to become on the right side.

Then add another field for however many images you need to do rather than use a separate code for each image.

When you're done, click the Get Code button and copy the code.

Then put the code in your footers (Admin CP > Style Manager > Footer)


However, with what you're doing, there is no way to change the name of those images in the selection box. So it will still read "Thumb Up" in the selection box for that image.

Could you use it forthat though?

Yes. It's the same code from the membergroup image guide in the guides section.

Thank you. I felt that the other guide was very long and I could only read it when I had five or ten minutes. Thanks. (:
