dvs - Redactor Editor Icons (for Dark Themes) 1.1

Colored Redactor Icons for Dark Backgrounds

    Compatible XF Versions:
    • 1.2
    • 1.3
    I was frustrated by the fact that I couldn't find any icons that would be suitable for the redactor editor against a dark background.

    It took me the better part of a day, but FINALLY I stumbled upon the solution. I first had to invert the original and then colorize the image.

    (The preview shows it against a dark background, but the background is transparent on the file. The preview doesn't show all the icons, the preview is much too long and would be compressed by xenforo.)




    1. Check the path and the file name that your theme uses by going to: Style Properies -> Rich Text Editor -> Editor Toolbar Button - Background Image Property.
    2. If the value is empty, find which color you want, rename it to icons.png, then upload it to /styles/default/xenforo/editor/
    3. If there is a value in Background Image Property, then find which color you want, rename it to icons.png (or whatever the theme named it), then upload it to /styles/YourStyleName/xenforo/editor/
    4. Go into your forum, and check your editor. If you don't see a change, hit F5 or Ctrl+F5.
