Rootschat icons
« on: Saturday 22 July 06 20:01 BST (UK) »
Hello

Bit of a silly question but does anyone know what the different symbols in the columns next to the posts mean? e.g the folders with different coloured exclamation marks etc?

Thanks

and if you send a reply, after the subject line, you will see a drop-down menu labelled Message Icon

This will give you a choice of what icon you want in the second column

Can someone tell me what the icons on the left-hand side of the message boards mean? Some look like documents, some have question marks, some little exclamation marks and some are undecipherable (well, by me, anyway)!

If you look at the bottom of the message board there is a key for the different icons used.
