  • [vB4] Post Icons replacement issue


    I'm fairly new to editing VB so please take it easy on me.

    I have an issue with swapping out the Post Icons for alternate ones. I thought I could do it just like most of the other images using an alternate folder location in Stylevars/ImagePaths. Unfortunately this doesn't work for these for some reason, or so it seems. It just keeps being linked to the main Images folder.

    If I replace them directly in the main images folder they change without any problems. The issue I have with this is I have a couple of templates that are using different images, so I need multiple Image folders if I use the Stylevars/ImagePaths route. I thought this would be the easiest way to swap them out.

    Any info on this would be great. I have don some searching but can't seem to find anything on it. If there is a thread on it already I would appreciate it if anyone can point me in the right direction.

    Here are examples of what I have now:

    This is how I want it to be (slight colour change):

    EDIT: I also know there is a Post Icon menu in the AdminCP but how can I edit the folder locations to work for different templates?

    Put the icons in a folder under your dark style, then create Replacement Variables for your dark style, go to styles & templates / Replacement Variable Manager

    Choose [Add New Replacement Variable] for your dark style

    in the search for text box type images/icons/ and in the Replace with Text box type the path to your dark icons. images/styles/your_dark_style/icons/
