New update for Ficons. I have closed the old thread as it was too large to actually be helpful. I have added troubleshooting tips, updated a template that needed to also be changed, altered description for title to be the forum name instead, and changed the admincp list to not include categories.

Those with previous versions are not required to update there are no actual security fixes and if ficons is working for you no need to update. If you do want to update just overwrite the ficons plugin file and that's it.

Enjoy version 2.1.

Omni,

Hey, I put this on my christian forums (http://www.psinetic.org/christian/) and it made the forums look kinda funny. Any ideas?

i'm trying to attach some photos to this for better assistance, hang on a few.

EDIT:

Change that link, it's now (i used the same theme on all three and got the same problem on all three):

I'll just give you one link though, since they all have the same problem:

The troubleshooting guide should help you. If you are using custom templates you may need to make more alterations to your templates for this to work Play with your colspan and make sure that the ficons td actually was placed.

alright, in editing, i found this problem:

Code:
forumbit_depth2_forum
Find <td class="{$bgcolor}" valign="top">
Before it add
<td class="{$bgcolor}" align="center" valign="top" width="1"><img src="uploads/ficons/{$forum['ficon']}" alt="{$forum['name']}" /></td>

Neither of those two codes exists in my version of ficons.php. Seems as though you've already editing the .php to reflect this.

It also seems you've posted this twice, the same troubleshooting code is at the end as well. and, unfortunately, none of these troubleshooting guides did anything at all to it. Interesting...all those changes, i figured something would've happened.
#7
Ugh..you don't edit ficons.php. In admincp you edit the named templates.
#8
son of a....*beats head on table very hard*
ok, so from further investigation, i see this as my problem:



That's all the codes you said to edit. I got this theme from here (mybbcentral) so if u want to take a look at it.
#9
Add the td line for the ficon..it goes after the tr

<td class="{$bgcolor}" align="center" valign="top" width="1"><img src="uploads/ficons/{$forum['ficon']}" alt="{$forum['name']}" /></td>


That's ficon table data...you don't know any html? You are just adding a column..it's very basic.
#10
Tongue apparently i don't know. I learn by troubleshooting, asking alot of dumb questions, and doing it myself. I can't learn from a book, i actually have to do it. After a bit of application, i've learned ALOT about mybb forums and how to edit them and lots of stuff just in two weeks simply from jumping into a project without knowing what's gonna happen or where to go and just doing alot of searching and asking questions. Big Grin thanks for the help, i'm gonna go put this in there and see how it turns out.
Ok, so I edited around and did like you said, looked here and there, and for the most part, it's working. HOWEVER, there is one thing that's bothering me. (btw i'm editing at http://www.scientificforums.net) at the far left side of the main page of the forum, the black category part does absolutely fine now, and i got the right hand side of the blue background image to go across as it's supposed to, but now i'm having issues with the left hand side of the blue background image. It's not going over on the last cell of the table. I've edited what I can find that would do this, but, as i already said, i'm not good at html at all and i bet it's right under my nose.
