Fingers of Fury!

Hi there,
I'm sure this has been touched on before but trying to find the info could take forever. I'm looking for a way to change the icon next to new or newly commented on threads in the forums section. It is very difficult to tell where a new post has been made. All the folders are just plain yellow no matter if there is a new post or not. Please help

Try importing new forum icon presets or submit your own forum icons...

Go to Control Panel > Styles & Colors > Forum Icons (near the bottom) > Select a forum preset and import it, or add the URL of your custom forum icons.

If you are talking about the icon not changing to indicate a New Post has been made in a Forum, this is a bug. Granted it does indicate on the Forum Header when a new post has been made, but when you look at the threads themselves, it shows as "read."

I had placed a ticket in about this several weeks ago. I got a response that it was fixed and yet it still takes two replies for the "read/unread" icon to function as it should. Currently, a new thread and up to one reply will show as "read". After that, any new posting in that thread will make the icon show as "unread".

This all started back when the "upgrades" came on line and did not revert back to the way it worked before after it was reverted back.

I wrote a reply not long after with my ticket # in the Subject line about this not being fixed yet and haven't heard back. I just figured it's on the back burner.
