Now this is the plugin I really love... You said "Troubleshooting: In case of custom templates you might need to manually edit them."

How would we do that. Please guide.

Question - are we allowed to use the images that are used with the plugin here?? Just want to make sure I can copy some of them.

Woooow Tongue
Thanks Big Grin

RE: Ficons 2.0 - sadiqsaad - Sep 24, 2008

Labrocca first of all thank you for the things and I am also sorry for the troubles. I thing I wanted to ask is is this plugin supported on Justin's themes?

RE: Ficons 2.0 - labrocca - Sep 24, 2008

I don't know but this will work on any theme with a couple manual edits if it's required. The template edits are the easy part making this plugin. It's the admincp side that's difficult and the most functional.

RE: Ficons 2.0 - MattR - Sep 25, 2008

I have a 'bug'... on the page where you add the Ficons, you can add one to categories, but they don't show on the forum. I don't think they should show on the forums for categories, but I think the option to add one for categories should be removed as it isn't really needed... maybe make categories just plain text rather than a link to upload a Ficon??


That's basically what I mean. So it's not really a bug but something that can just be removed.

RE: Ficons 2.0 - labrocca - Sep 25, 2008

It's not a bug. It's there in case you want to add to it later or possibly just move the category to a subforum.
