Manual Install Instructions for SMF

Below are some preview images of what the mod looks like when being used


This Mod allows you to have different Icons for your Boards when modifying your boards through the SMF Admin.  You can select No New Post Icons, New Post Icons, and even Redirect Icons.  There are several paths to choose from and you can even supply outside links for these icons that can represent your Boards.  You can supply icons for Child Boards as well.

There are 5 different path options to choose from:

http:// = This points to any URL that you want (can point to a url on your forum or on any other site).

{$boardurl} = Points to the url that is your SMF ROOT URL where SMF is installed.

{$scripturl} = Points to your SMF ROOT URL + index.php so you can apply actions to the url if need be (this was decided to be added, in case your $boardurl path is not within your $scripturl path, for security or any other reason(s)).

Default Theme = This path will always point to the default SMF CURVE Theme (./Themes/default/).

This Theme = This path points to whatever Theme the user has selected within their profile (wasn't thinking at the time when I decided on the name for this, but will most likely change in the future to Theme Specific instead).  The Great thing about the "This Theme" path, is that you can have different images for different themes, as long as they are along the same path for each theme, and have the same filename.

FYI:  This Mod was created a long time ago, back in 2011 and was offered to members of for having high post counts, however, I think it would be more useful for everyone to enjoy this mod!
