Custom Icons needed for a couple of mods
on: September 18, 2009, 09:26:52 PM
    Hi :)

    I was redirected here by Shortie in hopes that I could get a couple of custom menu buttons made :)

    The modifications I need them for are:

    Tagging System: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=579

    Bookmarks: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=864

    I have never installed a multiple themed themeset before so please be gentle..lol. I would like to use the Playground Untimate as it has the most color selections with it. Please let me know what all I need to do

    Thanks in advance :)

      Hello, are you needing icons to match with the Playground Ultimate Menu Buttons (up top in the Menubar?)?? If so, best for Shortie to do it since he would have the original PSD file and be able to do this much better than all of us.

        This is definitely a job for Shortie.

        I can almost hear him singing "Here I come to save the day!" lol :clown:

          yes :)

          I had asked shortie over at the SMF site in his theme comment thread and he told me to come here and he would make them for me. :)

            Gotcha. So Shortie is the man once again :D

            P.S. -> While you are waiting, perhaps you can join in on the fun at the Word Association Game OR My newly created topic geared specifically for new comers who aren't any good at graphics, GM Art - Do Your Worst!!

              Hi Ya

              Sorry for the delay

              Now here is an idea

              First off Have a read here....

              This shows all the icons which are available currently in the Ultimate version

              So why no use the FAVS icon for bookmarks just like here and uses the rules one for Tags if you are not already using it

              Also if you have an idea for an icon I will create a set for the tag mode an upload them

              What do ya think also that post explains how to add icons etc


              Shortie


              EDIT here is the code for bookmarks

              find
              Code: [Select]
              if ($context['allow_pm'])
              {
              if ( $context['user']['unread_messages'] >= 1 )
              {
              echo '' . $txt['gmpmsome'] .'' . $txt['gmpmsome'], '';
              }
              else {
              echo '' . $txt['gmpmnone'] .'' . $txt['gmpmnone'], '';
              }
              }

              and replace with

              Code: [Select]
              if ($context['view_bookmarks'])
              echo '' . $txt['gmfavs'] .'' . $txt['gmfavs'], '';

              if ($context['allow_pm'])
              {
              if ( $context['user']['unread_messages'] >= 1 )
              {
              echo '' . $txt['gmpmsome'] .'' . $txt['gmpmsome'], '';
              }
              else {
              echo '' . $txt['gmpmnone'] .'' . $txt['gmpmnone'], '';
              }
              }

              This is in the index.template.php

              one last thing check that this line is present

              Code: [Select]
              $context['view_bookmarks'] = allowedTo('make_bookmarks');

              if not add it after

              Code: [Select]
              function template_dock_menu ()
              {

              global $context, $modSettings, $user_info, $settings, $options, $scripturl, $txt;

                wow thanks :). I will have a look through those icons and get back to you a little later today as I am on my way out to run some errands. I may also need one for the shop mod I am thinking about installing.

                I will get with the rest of my staff and see if they would prefer one of those, or if they have another idea on an image for one of those mods.


                Thanks again for the quick responses everyone :)

                  I an running Simple Portal and I dont have a "Forum" button at the top. I have Home, Help, Search Profile. Messages, Members, Calender, Moderate, Admin, LogOut.

                    Easy one

                    In index.template.php in the theme directory

                    find

                    Code: [Select]
                    ' . $txt['gmhome'] . '' . $txt['gmhome'] . ' ';

                    and replace with

                    Code: [Select]
                    ' . $txt['gmhome'] . '' . $txt['gmhome'] . ' ';

                    echo '
                    ' . $txt['gmforum'] . '' . $txt['gmforum'] . ' ';
