    You may want to look at the path in your css over-rides.  It doesn't match the documentation.  Also, on this site, the group collapse and expand images don't show up either

  • re: Classic Forum Homepage - CS2008.5

    Thanks for the pointer Navy1 - I've resovled both the issue in the download's readme and the group collapse / expand images on this site.

      I followed the instruction here and got a page not found. I logged onto the server locally and browsed to it and found the following:

    Server Error in '/cs' Application.


    Parser Error

    Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.

    Parser Error Message: The file '/cs/Themes/hawaii/ACCustom/forums.Master' does not exist.

    Source Error:

    Line 1:  <%@ Page EnableViewState="false" Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" Inherits="CommunityServer.Discussions.Controls.CSForumThemePage" MasterPageFile="forums.Master" %>

    Line 2:  

    Line 3:  <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderID="bbcr" runat="server">

    the forums.master files is in the /themes/hawaii/forums folder. So I copied every files in the forums folder to the ACCustom folder and everything worked. Thanks

    Hi nguyenpv1980,

    All you would need to go is to copy the forums.Master from the themes/hawaii/forums to the theme/hawaii/ACCustom folder and then touch the web.config file and that would solve the problem.


  • re: Classic Forum Homepage - CS2008.5

    Change the MasterPageFile to read ../forums/forums.master - no need to copy the forums.Master to the ACCustom folder.

    I have also updated the download to include this fix.

    Firstly, Alex you are awesome.  Thanks for sharing this.  I would like to change the forum status icons from .gif to .png but cannot figure out where to modify the filepath for the status icons.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • re: Classic Forum Homepage - CS2008.5

    @PSBrice unfortunantly the ForumStatusIcon control is hardcoded to use .gif.

  • re: Classic Forum Homepage - CS2008.5

    Is it possible to apply this format to the subforums as well.... when you add subforums they revert back to the new style.

  • re: Classic Forum Homepage - CS2008.5

    Yes it would be possible but I haven't implemented that.  For that you'll need to edit a second file - /themes/THEME/forums/threadlist.aspx
