    You can now do this by using a conditional in the template.

    <img border="0" src="img_$forumid.gif" />

    and then just upload the img_n.gif where n is the number of the forum

    If you just have a few categories, you can narrow this down.

    <if condition="($forumid == 1) OR ($forumid == 5) OR ($forumid == 19)">
    <img border="0" src="img_$forumid.gif" />
    <else />
    normal vbulletin code
    </if>

        The forumhome template set templates.
        Like forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost is used for the categories and forumhome_forumbit_level2_post for the forums in it. The others are used for forumdisplay.php pages (after clicking a category).

        You can upload the images into the images/misc dir and link to them in the <img .. /> tag with src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/img_$forumid.gif"

        For example, if you want to add the images to the category, you can edit the forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost template and find the code just after:

        <tbody>
        <tr>

        and in front of:

        <td class="tcat" colspan="<if condition="$vboptions[showmoderatorcolumn]">6<else />5</if>">

        You can add another table cell there, so you can include an image:

        <td width="30" class="tcat">
        <if condition="($forumid == 1) OR ($forumid == 5) OR ($forumid == 19)">
        <img border="0" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/img_$forumid.gif" />
        <else />
        <img border="0" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/img_default.gif" />
        </if>
        </td>

        Of course, modify the <if conditional> to your forumid's.


        You can do the same for the other templates, to replace the on/off images.

        In the forumhome_forumbit_level2_post

        find this code:

        <td class="alt2"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" /></td>

        and replace it with something like:

        <td class="alt2">
        <if condition="($forumid == 6) OR ($forumid == 18) OR ($forumid == 25)">
        <img border="0" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/img_$forumid.gif" />
        <else />
        <img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" />
        </if>
        </td>


        I hope this guides you

          Television (id=5)

          Games have 2 sub-forums.

          I have 7 images. One for the news one for the polls, etc.
          I mean 14 images. ON and OFF.

          Tell me exactly where and how do i specify what image shall it put for a category.

          Thanx
