    I want to get rid of the Media Icons. I find it sometimes some people forget which icon means what. So instead of hovering over the icon to find out.

    So i think would be easier and faster for members if the text was shown by default.

    From this:

    To this:

    I tried to go into the xengallery_media_view_toolbar

    and change this
    <i class="fa fa-arrow-right fa-lg"></i>

    to Next

    and this is what happened.


    The text worked but the buttons didnt get bigger.

    How can i make the buttons bigger?

    Try adding to your EXTRA.CSS:

    .buttonToolbar .toolButton {
    width: 50px !important;
    height: 50px !important;
    Adjust the values accordingly.

    Hi @joey_tbf I would be interested in this too. Would you be able to help me with detail of how you did this?

    Search for this template:


    All the icons are in that template. For example, the download icon is this:

    <i class="fa fa-download fa-lg"></i>
    So find that code in the template and delete it. and replace it with whatever word you want.

    I choose to replace it with the word:

    You can find the rest, they all start with fa fa
    <i class="fa fa-trash-o fa-lg"></i>
    <i class="fa fa-picture-o fa-lg"></i>

    it looks like this:


    the word download is the new code

    so delete everthing here

    <i class="fa fa-download fa-lg"></i>

    and replace all that code with just the word. download or whichever word you want.

    I would also like to change the first one to be the tagging function, is there a way to do this? Most of my users are not going to have any interest in using images from the media library for their avatar.

    Are you taking about the tag in the media tools?
