  • on.gif, off.gif

    I'm just learning about my new board; exciting and a little frustrating!

    The forum's main page (that lists all categories and forums) references on.gif and off.gif to display whether or not there are new posts in each forum.

    It also references on.gif and off.gif to show whether people are online or offline.

    I want to have a different image pair for online/offline and newposts/oldposts. What do I need to change/rename to make this happen?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Just upload new on.gif and off.gif files and overwriting the default ones.

      Thanks for the very speedy response!

      Hmmm. I don't think I phrased the question correctly. Right now the forum home references the on/off pair, and the user info in the postbit tmeplate (I think) references that same pair.

      I want those two to reference two different pairs of images.

      For example, on the forum home page, on/off are shown depending on whether there are new posts in any threads in that forum. I can keep that reference to 'on.gif' and 'off.gif' the same.

      But for referencing whether people are online or offline, I need it to reference something different than 'on.gif' and 'off.gif'. They need to be different file names. I've got the files and can create any file name, I just don't know where to find the code to affect that change.

      Does that make more sense?

        Ah, in this case try editing postbit_offline and postbit_online.

              I'm trying to get this on/off ( of online/offline" users to work.

              Apparently I did something wrong, just not sure what yet.


              I did upload two images to my directory

              welovefrestuff.com/public_html/images folder.. and then I went and edited my "postbit_offline and postbit_online" to read the two files I uploaded..

              Does anyone see what I did wrong ?

              I'm trying to get the online/offline & my PM incons to work.. so I might be putting both instructions for these in the wrong order.
              Thank you in advance

                If you edited the postbit_online and postbit_offline templates, changing the on.gif and off.gif in those templates to somethingelse_on.gif and somethingelse_off.gif (then uploaded somethingelse_on.gif and somethingelse_off.gif to your images directory) like what I wanted to do in this thread, it should work fine.

                Worked fine for me.

                What does appear where the on.gif and off.gif are supposed to appear in the postbit?

                Does the little black and yellow (or black and gray)'V' show up, like on this vBB?

                Right here

                  All I get is a box and inside that box is a white box with an red X. However, on a better note.. I do see where it says "Teea is online now"

                  I have a temp User/Pass if that will help out.

                  Username "Sugar Plum" Pass is "blue"

                  Then you could see what I'm talking about.

                    I see in your signature that you're a newbie - I am too. The only things that I can think to check is that you loaded the images ot the correct directory, and that you spelled everything exactly right in the template when you modified it.

                    The image path for that image is: http://www.welovefreestuff.com/forum...502bye_prv.gif

                    Double check the "082502bye_prv.gif" make sure the case is the same, stuff like that. Can you post the pertinent code from that postbit template here, so I can see it?

                          Make sure you uploaded it, and that you uploaded it to the right directory, and that you are referencing it by the exact correct name.

                          When I enter www.welovefreestuff.com/forums/images/whatever.gif, if that image is in your images directory, it should show up. For example, change the whatever to 'on'. You get your red X. Entering 082502bye_prv.gif should result in a window showing only that image, whatever it is.

                          So it's either not uploaded, uploaded to the wrong directory, or not named the same thing as what you reference here.
