    In an attempt to decrease the number of HTTP requests made (and thereby speed up pages), virtually all of XenForo 1.1's UI icon graphics come from just two sprites.





    Attached below are the 24 bit versions of the same sprites, for those of you who wish to edit them but don't have a graphic program which supports the 8 bit versions.

    Does that mean there would be some tool in the control panel to make sprites for custom skins? or it's just how the new xenforo 1.1 default skin will ship?

    It's just how the default will ship. It's not really within our scope to write a CSS sprite building tool.

    Yea, great!
    (But customizing will get a challenge for css n00bs like me:D )

    If you already have custom icons, it will just be a case of replacing the relevant ones (copy and paste) and re-saving the sprite .png.

    So the day keeps getting better and better. Can't wait for 1.1, going to be a wonderful experience.

    FWIW, you can edit the sprites as I've linked them here in preparation for your 1.1 upgrade, I have no intention of making changes to them prior to release :)

    I'm sorry, but I don't like this. It seems like a lot of work for styling. :-/

    I perferred the old way - one by one.

    I wish this was a toggle.
