    Thanks for fixing the Read issue.
    The fix was to change the "Topic/Forum Read Marking Type" setting to "Database".

    Mark,

    Using either, especially Today's Posts, I NEVER see a thread unbolded, even after I've read it. Is there a setting I have missed?

    This is on vBcloud www.tlplanet.com.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    1. Sitebuilder > Style > CSS Editor tab > (Select a style)
    2. You can't. Use external images and set the image url as absolute (e.g. http://example.com/images/whatever.png)

    Questions to both as I am VERY new at vBulletin, if you don't mind:
    1. Where am I to put this code if I were to do the same thing?
    2. How to I upload the new icons to the images folder when my site is on the vBCloud?

    Yes, it works great, just wasn't sure about the coding.

    Can see it here : www.sidexside.ca

    The CSS *looks* just fine. Have you tried it?

    Well I got the threads to work as well, however I am not that good in CSS, can someone PLZ just validate my coding.

    /* Thread */
    .vb-icon-topic-status {
    background: transparent url("mywebsite/images/new.gif") no-repeat; /* forum icon for thread with old posts */
    width: 16px; /* icon width */
    height: 15px; /* icon height */
    }
    .read .vb-icon-topic-status {
    background: transparent url("mywebsite/images/old.gif") no-repeat; /* forum icon for thread with new posts */
    width: 16px; /* icon width */
    height: 15px; /* icon height */
    }
    /* end custom thread icons */

    I found this code :

    /* start custom forum icons */
    /* Forums */
    .forum-list-container .forum-item .cell-forum .icon {
    background: transparent url("http://mywebsite/images/old.gif") no-repeat; /* forum icon for forums with old posts */
    width: 16px; /* icon width */
    height: 15px; /* icon height */
    }
    .forum-list-container .forum-item.new .cell-forum .icon {
    background: transparent url("http://mywebsite/images/new.gif") no-repeat; /* forum icon for forums with new posts */
    width: 16px; /* icon width */
    height: 15px; /* icon height */
    }
    /* end custom forum icons */

    That corrected the issue I was having for the forum index.

    Now I would like to do the same thing for the topics, new and old topics, can anyone help?

    Thanks...

    started a topic Forum Icons and Mark Channels As Read.

    Forum Icons and Mark Channels As Read.

    Good day all,

    I have 2 questions which still trouble me.

    1) The forum icons on the forum index, it there a way to change them, if so how? I know it uses some kind of sprite, but I dont understand how it works. Also on my forum I purchased a skin and the icons always remain the same weather there is a new post or not?

    2) The mark Channel Read, my member are so used to VB4 that they are having a hard time with this option. In VB4 when you would mark all forums as read, it would do exactly that and it would also clear all the post in "todays post". Meaning that the todays post would return a empty search result until someone posted a new thread or reply. Is there a way to do this with VB5?

    Thank-you all.
