#1)  What the BBS icons mean

Postby edfrank » Thu Feb 02, 2012 12:12 pm

This is a summary of the new topic icons and what they mean.

   Two general points
   - Red icons are unread items, blue/grey are read
   - A star on any thread means you have posted in it


   For example:
   Image - Read topic (No one has posted to this topic since your last visit.)
   Image - Unread topic (Someone has posted to this topic since your last visit.)
   Image - Read topic that you have posted in
   Image - Unread topic that you have posted in

   Other icon definitions (the blue=read / red=unread rule applies to these as well)
   Image - Announcements from the administrators.
   Image - Sticky thread
   Image - Hot topic
   Image - Locked thread
   Image - Moved thread
   Image - Forum with subforums
   Image - Link forum

   More icons:
   Image - Attachment
   Image - Go to last post in the thread
   Image  - Go to last unread post in the thread
   Image - Subforum read
   Image - Subforum unread

This topic will be moved to the BBS Administration forum at the bottom of the page in a week or so.
