Full Version: Add button pack to 1.8
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hi all,

I just updated my board to 1.8.6 from 1.6.14. I've been busy rebuilding my theme the way I want it. On my old board I had a postbit button pack(posbit_edit.gif, posbit_pm.gif, posbit_quote.gif, etc...) installed that I really liked and would like to use these again on my new forum. For the life of me I can't remember how I added these when I created my 1.6 board? Can you all assist me with this? Right now my board just has the actions in plain text


I'd like to add my button gif's to replace these.

Thank you!

Nobody? Should I be posting this in a different forum?
it would be better to install & use a theme fully compatible with MyBB 1.8.x

theme installation guidance =>
The theme I used was supposedly 1.8 compatible. I have since changed my theme to another one and have all the default postbit buttons that look correct, although they are not the color(red) that I prefer(dark grey or black). Do I just have to download a new button pack to my liking and copy those to the images folder?
MyBB 1.8.x uses sprite images. that needs many changes in 1.6.x templates

upgrading guidance Wrote:Visit your Admin Control Panel, then go to Templates & Style > Templates > Find Updated Templates.
This will show you a list of all the templates that have changed during the upgrade.

You can either revert these templates to their default - meaning all the changes you've made to it will be removed - or you can see a Diff Report which will show you exactly what's changed. If you have a custom theme installed, it is probably best that you look at the Diff Report and apply the changes you need.

you may also try this guidance => basic theme updating (1.6 - 1.8) [note: might not work well for dark themes]
I'm not using a 1.6 theme anymore. The current theme is 1.8 installed fresh. 1.6 seemed a lot simpler for changing postbit buttons. Just go find some button images you liked and overwrite them in the images folder? Is 1.8 the same? Can I go find some sprite images and overwrite as well?
post a test user account so that someone can check it

if you have a legit forum (see support eligibility)
and if you can wait few hours then you may PM me temporary access to forum admin panel to check
Hi .m. you've been such a big help to me with my other issue. Since I've already granted you access to both a user and a temp admin account can you check this out for me when you get a chance? I would really like to know if i could change the color on my current postbit buttons from red to a darker color like dark grey or black. Thanks

Thank you so .m. Exactly what I was looking for!
