Where to edit to add image under the "New Discussion" button?

In the left column my "New Discussion" button has been renamed to "Ask a question". But how do I insert an image between the button and the start of the category list?

    To add an image beneath the "New Discussion"/"Ask a Question" button, you'll need to hook into the AfterNewDiscussionButton event in three different controllers (one for the category listings, the discussion listings and the individual discussions) like this:

    public function CategoriesController_AfterNewDiscussionButton_Handler {
    public function DiscussionsController_AfterNewDiscussionButton_Handler {
    public function DiscussionController_AfterNewDiscussionButton_Handler {
      * Containing your image related code in a private
      * function will save you a lot of copy/pasting.
    private function _AddImage($Sender) {
        echo "Your image";

    You could put this code in either a plugin or theme hooks.
