    You need to edit the css sprites.

    Those two are in the file images/css/sprite_icons_vb.png

      They are located in the sprites within upload/images/css. If you want different size images or do not want to use Sprites, then you would need to edit the individual CSS for each image. Unfortunately, I don't have a list at this time.

        I see there is a green forum_new icon on the default sprites.
        Can someone tell me how to use it instead of the blue one? Please
        Thank you!

          Nevermind, found the solution myself.
          Add this to css_additional.css :
          .forum-list-container .cell-forum .icon {
          	background-position: -68px -208px;

        I just opened the sprites PNG in photo shop are created my own icon designs over the top of the stock ones. Worked just fine.

          I tried that but it didn't work for me so by your example, I must have made an error somewhere. Thanks for the inspiration to try again..
