Is there a way for me to be able so that my forum (http://tcb.alltoons.co.uk/forum) will be able to use different No New Posts/New Post inditators.

So for the Simpsons it has a simpsons related one
For Futurama it has Futurama ones
and so on.

Ok, im not sure if its the best way but it works just fine:


-------------------------------------------------
[open: boardindex.template.php]
-------------------------------------------------
[find]
-------------------------------------------------
<td class="windowbg" width="6%" align="center" valign="top">';

// If the board is new, show a strong indicator.
if ($board['new'])
echo '<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/on.gif" alt="', $txt[333], '" title="', $txt[333], '" border="0" />';
// This board doesn't have new posts, but its children do.
elseif ($board['children_new'])
echo '<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/on2.gif" alt="', $txt[333], '" title="', $txt[333], '" border="0" />';
// No new posts at all!  The agony!!
else
echo '<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/off.gif" alt="', $txt[334], '" title="', $txt[334], '" border="0" />';

echo '</td>
-------------------------------------------------
[replace with]
-------------------------------------------------
<td class="windowbg" width="6%" align="center" valign="top">';

// If the board is new, show a strong indicator.
if ($board['new'])
echo '<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/special/on', $board['id'], '.gif" alt="', $txt[333], '" title="', $txt[333], '" border="0" />';
// This board doesn't have new posts, but its children do.
elseif ($board['children_new'])
echo '<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/special/con', $board['id'], '.gif" alt="', $txt[333], '" title="', $txt[333], '" border="0" />';
// No new posts at all!  The agony!!
else
echo '<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/special/off', $board['id'], '.gif" alt="', $txt[334], '" title="', $txt[334], '" border="0" />';

echo '</td>

so what you need to do after changing the code is to make a folder called: /special/ inside the images folder of that template.. there for each forum youll need:

on.gif
con.gif
off.gif

but after that name you'll need to put the id of the forum.. so lets say for forum with the ID of 10 youll have:
on10.gif
con10.gif
off.gif

and thats how you can have different status pics for each forum..
to find the id, just look at the forum number at the bottom when u put ur mouse on its link.

you'll have to change the posting template too if you want to make different pics for each child board as well cause it will use the default on/off/on2 gifs for child boards

Just implimented this on Gazmanafc's forum, just a quick word to all people on RC1 that the code to search for is:
<img src="', $settings['images_url'], $board['new'] ? '/on.gif" alt="' . $txt[333] . '" title="' . $txt[333] : '/off.gif" alt="' . $txt[334] . '" title="' . $txt[334], '" border="0" />
