    You'll have to edit the extension files for those two feed types. Go into extensions/atom and extensions/rss2 It will likely be the default.php file in each.

    to change the Atom one you would go to


    and change this line near the top..

    $Context->Dictionary['AtomFeed'] = 'Atom';

    to this..

    $Context->Dictionary['AtomFeed'] = '<img src="url_to_pic" alt="alt text" />';

    same goes with the RSS2 text, just go to that extensions folder, and then default.php, and then change the following line like above

    $Context->Dictionary["RSS2Feed"] = "RSS2";

    mh this is interessting, i'm anyways not a very brilliant coding guy but this is probably new to me. if i add the string : $Context->Dictionary["RSS2Feed"] = '<img src="rss2ico.gif" alt="rss" style="border: 0px"/>'; then the "/> appear on top of the forum header (on top means , above the blue.wave.gif bgimage). and i get this only in opera and firefox so far. but safari looks good .. no errors there. any ideas? would be nice. thankies

    That'd probably be because the same definitions are used within the link tag, so your html is causing the string to break out of the link's attribute:<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" href="somefeedurl" title="<img src="rss2ico.gif" alt="rss" style="border: 0px"/>" />
