Title: New Category Icons
Post by: admin on January 30, 2013, 10:58:34 PM
I have added new category icons to the forum. Each category is now more easily identified without even reading the name. An icon that represents each console category will now show up to the left of each category instead of the default icons.

Also worth noting, the icons will not change when a category has new posts. This feature was useful if a user quickly wanted to see if a forum had new posts since their last visit. I have decided to get rid of this feature because it required 2 different icons for each category, and that last post topic, author, and date are available from the index page so a user could use that to determine if new posts were made. Also, a user has the ability to select "View new posts since last visit" from the top of the forum. Basically, the new vs old post icon system is not needed anymore so I felt no reason to keep it.
