Replacing icon with text

Hello,
I would like to replace these icons with something better.

I would like to possibly move the bookmark button in the same drop down menu, and replace the icon with some text that says something like Post Options or Topic Tools.
Is there anyway to do this?

Thanks for any suggestions.

  • you need to adjust css, inspect with web developer tools, and change text via definitions, pretty much the same way you change all themes and wording.

    This is a tip. "YOU" need to adjust as you wish.

    add to /conf/locale.php or create.
    $Definition['Options'] = "Topic Tools";

    in your custom.css

    .Item .OptionsTitle {
        background-image: none;
        font-size: 10px ;
        line-height: 11px ;
        visibility: visible;
        margin-right: 40px;
        width: auto;
    }

    For bookmark I leave to you.

    you can add to the Discussion flyout menu

    public function Base_DiscussionOptions_Handler($Sender, $Args) {

    look at bump plugin.

  • Thanks for your help so far. I was able to add what you suggested for the topic tools. However, it did not replace that icon. Is there anyway in the CSS i can make it become text instead of an icon?

    Thanks.

    You wanted a suggestion, correct!

    it did for me. I can't troubleshoot what you did.

    All I can say is it worked for me. and provided the suggestions how to learn css and defintions.

    There is no cogwheel! It is gone.

    the Bookmark icon. I leave for you to deal with as you wish. As i mentioned in my previous thread.

  • I am still working on adding the bookmark button to the fly out menu. I found the file class.discussionfiltermodule to add it to. Is this the right file i should be editing? I wish i new some more about definitions, but i just cannot come up with one to add bookmarks to the fly out menu.

    Thanks.

    are you joking, or have you missed all the discussions regarding modifying the core. :n
    :naughty::naughty::naughty::naughty::naughty::naughty::naughty::naughty::naughty:
    if you looked at bump plugin, you wouldn't have asked the question.

    I wish i new some more about definitions,

    as your advisor, yt, you could become the supreme subject matter expert on definitions if you read this discussion

    re-read discussions several times

    really bad idea to put bookmark option in flyout. But you asked for it.

    Put this in a plugin. and then spend a few weeks studying it, if you need to tweak it for your needs.

     public function Base_DiscussionOptions_Handler($Sender, $Args) {
            if (!Gdn::Session()->IsValid())
             return '';
           $Discussion = $Args['Discussion'];
          // Bookmark link
          $Label = T($Discussion->Bookmarked == '1' ? 'Unbookmark' : 'Bookmark');
          $Url = '/vanilla/discussion/bookmark/'.$Discussion->DiscussionID.'/'.Gdn::Session()->TransientKey();
    
    
             if (isset($Sender->Options)) {
                $Sender->Options .= Wrap(Anchor($Label, $Url, 'Hijack BookMark'), 'li');
             }
             else {
                $Args['DiscussionOptions']['BookMark'] = array(
                   'Label' => $Label,
                   'Url' => $Url,
                   'Class' => array('BookMark Hijack')
                );
             }
          }
    

    its not perfect but its another start for you before you hire someone :;


    personally I think its a bad idea to see if it is bookmarked, because you have to click to tell.


    another option if you want text to show instead of bookmark icon star.

    .Item a.Bookmark, .Item a.Bookmarked, .Item a.Bookmarking {
       background-image: none;
        font-size: 10px ;
        line-height: 11px ;
        visibility: visible;
        margin-right: 20px;
        width: auto;
        display: inline;
    }

    No, i did not. I just don't know how to make a plugin and did not want to go down that road today if i could help it.
    If it is a really bad idea, i will just go with the text suggestion.

    Thanks for your help and suggestions.

    I customized these things in all my themes. It is pretty easy to do. Making plugins is pretty easy too. Once you inspect a simple plugin, you can make your own. Even use theme hooks which is a plugin for a theme.

  • I will have to look in to it when i have some more time for messing around. For now, thanks for all the help you all have given me today @vrijvlinder and @peregrine.
