Lightbulb The little link icon isn't showing...

Using the very latest GAL and vb 3.5.0. I'm not seeing the little icon next to the links at all? Do I need to enable it?
New link additions also don't seem to be working.

Cheers.

Did you update your replacements and your CSS as per the readme? You may need to put the full URL in the CSS image path.

The upgrade instructions didn't mention replacing the CSS definitions in Style Options, but I've done that now and no change.

I don't see why I'd need the full URL for the image, GAL and my forums are in the same folder.

I don't get a broken image, I just don't get any image at all.

Replacements e.t.c. have all been replaced.

You sure the upgrade posrtion didnt mention this? Im positive I put it in there (in the readme).
You wont need to put the full url if everything resides in the same folder. I only suggest this for people who use GAL outside of the forum directory (i.e. their vbacmps page, etc...).

If youre still hitting a wall - PM me style and GAL admin access.

Thanks!

Sorted it (thanks for the PM). Thought I would post the solution here just in case anyone else runs into the problem.

1- Check that your CSS addtion (from the README) is in each of your styles.
2- GAL used to use class='DEF' in the replacements - however this changed awhile ago (cant remember when) so make sure that in your replacments, they are class=' gal '

Thanks again Flea.

Thanks for the help! Very prompt heh. Just a couple of other things. On my replacements thread 'Bargoed' has 2 of the icons next to it, whereas the rest have one.

Popups do not have the icon next to them, is this how it is intended to be?

Cool they're showing up correctly now as you say. I've now deleted that 'Old' style, it was redundant from 3.0.x. With regard to the double icon, a screenshot is attached.
