FAQ: Icon next to forum names


Put a code like this in your Custom CSS:

.forumlistforumname {
  height: 20px;
  padding-left: 20px;
  background:url('http://img.runboard.com/img/default_post_icons/ohmygod.gif') top left no-repeat;
}

Image
The above code will add a smiley next to each forum name as shown here, and you'll have to adjust the height and left padding to accommodate your icon of choice.

Re: Icon next to forum names


How do you put a different icon for each different forum name?

Re: Icon next to forum names


Hi mixmax,

The answer to this question is in the "Advanced" forum at Runboard Extra, "Have an image beside your forum name ."

For the trick to work, you have to enable CSS trick #1 and #2 in your layout/colors screen.

Also, you can adjust the height and padding-left to accommodate your image.

Yuck. I have decided to not do it because when you make it CSS Trick 1, it makes it so the entire "button" of the forum name, not just the next, is a link, so when the CSS hides the effect of you highlighting the "button", it is still a link and doesnt end up looking to well, thanks anyway emoticon

You're welcome, mixmax, but I don't understand this part:

when the CSS hides the effect of you highlighting the "button"

It doesn't have to change colors when you hover on it, if that's what you're referring to. But yes, the whole row becomes a link.

Yeah i just dont like the CSS trick 1, because it makes even the blank space a link, and every time you go from one button to the next, it shows a little hour glass for a split second. So I'm just gonna stick to no pics by my forum names ^_^

Or you could use the same icon next to all the names, without having to use the CSS trick. emoticon

I don't recall ever the CSS trick causing an hourglass, but I don't doubt that it happens on your computer.  Computers can be temperamental and unpredictable at times, lol.

Edit:

This is off topic, but I wanted to mention it. If you go into your custom HTML, the very last thing in your header is <td>. If you change that <td> to
<td valign="top"> it will get rid of the extra space above short topics and the posting screen, etc.

Your are a isavior >.< I've been wondering what caused that huge gap, and even spent about an hour trying to fix it. Once again, THANKS LesignerGirl! emoticon

You're very welcome! emoticon

When valign="top" or "bottom" isn't specified, it defaults to the vertical "middle".&nbsp; With the content positioned in the vertical middle and a long sidebar, any page with very little in the content area will have that gap.

The same works for the sidebar, but in reverse. If the sidebar is smaller than the content and valign="top" isn't specified for the cell that contains it, the sidebar will be positioned halfway down a long thread.
