Punbb icons hack

License

According to the license of punbb the following idea and code are subject to the GPL.

How to use this hack

Create a table

Add a table named $punbb_prefix.'forum_icon' to your database :

CREATE TABLE `punbb_forum_icon` (
`forum_id` INT( 10 ) UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
`icon` VARCHAR( 80 ) NULL ,
UNIQUE (
`forum_id`
)
) ENGINE = MYISAM;

Create a directory for the icons

Create an icons directory in the img directory of punbb, and add icon files of 32px X 32px.

Edit index.php

Open index.php and replace (or comment out) this query :

// Print the categories and forums
$result = $db->query('SELECT c.id AS cid, c.cat_name, f.id AS fid, f.forum_name, f.forum_desc,
f.redirect_url, f.moderators, f.num_topics, f.num_posts, f.last_post, f.last_post_id, f.last_poster
FROM '.$db->prefix.'categories AS c
INNER JOIN '.$db->prefix.'forums AS f ON c.id=f.cat_id
LEFT JOIN '.$db->prefix.'forum_perms AS fp ON (fp.forum_id=f.id AND fp.group_id='.$pun_user['g_id'].')
WHERE fp.read_forum IS NULL OR fp.read_forum=1
ORDER BY c.disp_position, c.id, f.disp_position', true)
or error('Unable to fetch category/forum list', __FILE__, __LINE__, $db->error());

by this one :

/*** /!\ This query as been modified for the icon's hack /!\ ***/
$result = $db->query('SELECT c.id AS cid, c.cat_name, f.id AS fid, f.forum_name, f.forum_desc,
f.redirect_url, f.moderators, f.num_topics, f.num_posts, f.last_post, f.last_post_id, f.last_poster, fi.icon
FROM '.$db->prefix.'categories AS c
INNER JOIN '.$db->prefix.'forums AS f ON c.id=f.cat_id
LEFT JOIN '.$db->prefix.'forum_perms AS fp ON (fp.forum_id=f.id AND fp.group_id='.$pun_user['g_id'].')
LEFT JOIN '.$db->prefix.'forum_icon AS fi ON fi.forum_id=f.id
WHERE fp.read_forum IS NULL OR fp.read_forum=1
ORDER BY c.disp_position, c.id, f.disp_position', true)
or error('Unable to fetch category/forum list', __FILE__, __LINE__, $db->error());

Then add the part in comment at the right place in index.php

<div class="<?php echo $icon_type ?>"><div class="nosize"><?php echo $icon_text ?></div></div>
 
<?php //**************************************** BEGIN forum's icons hack ***************************************//	?>
							<div class="ficon">
							<?php if ($cur_forum['icon']) { ?>
								<img src="img/icons/<?php echo $cur_forum['icon']; ?>" alt="<?php echo pun_htmlspecialchars($cur_forum['forum_name']); ?>" />
							<?php }
							else echo '&nbsp;';
							?>
							</div>
<?php //**************************************** END forum's icons hack ***************************************//	?>
 
							<div class="tclcon">
								<?php echo $forum_field."\n".$moderators ?>
							</div>

Edit the class name just after the icons hack part :

							<div class="tclcon_ih">
								<?php echo $forum_field."\n".$moderators ?>
							</div>

Edit the css file

Add this class in your (or every) css file in the style directory of punbb :

/* icon's hack */
DIV.ficon {
	FLOAT: left;
	MARGIN-TOP: 0.1em;
	MARGIN-LEFT: 0.8em;
	MARGIN-RIGHT : 0.8em;
	DISPLAY: block;
	BORDER : 0px;
	WIDTH : 32px;
}
 
TD DIV.tclcon_ih {MARGIN-LEFT: 65px}

Fill the data base

Create the entries in the data base with the forum id and the name of the icon image… Or write a plugin to choose the images within the administration panel

That's all

Try your new forum…
