Hi. I'd like to put a Post new thread button for forum list next to rss button. This was a template/css modification I had in vbulletin and miss it a lot in xenforo. How could I implement this? Example:

Okay I figured it out.

www.the8thlegion.com/forum/

How do I get the button to show to the left of the RSS button instead of pushing it down?

Search for nodeControls. It will be in template node_forum_level_2
Code:
<div class="nodeControls">
<a href="{xen:link forums/create-thread, $forum}" class="postnTopic">
            <a href="{xen:link forums/index.rss, $forum}" class="tinyIcon feedIcon" title="{xen:phrase rss}">{xen:phrase rss}</a>
        </div>
Add the second line underneath nodeControls.


Code:
Extra.CSS
 
/* Add Post Topic icon to Node list */
.postnTopic {
background: transparent url('http://www.the8thlegion.com/images/topicb.png');
padding: 2px;
opacity: 0.5;
float: left;
width: 50px;
height: 16px;
margin-right: 9px;
}
 
    .postnTopic:hover {
    opacity: 1;
    }

For the purposes of my example I let the create thread button be viewable.

If you don't want your create thread button viewable to guests try adding a conditional.

Code:
<div class="nodeControls">
<xen:if is="{$visitor.user_id}">
<a href="{xen:link forums/create-thread, $forum}" class="postnTopic"></xen:if>
            <a href="{xen:link forums/index.rss, $forum}" class="tinyIcon feedIcon" title="{xen:phrase rss}">{xen:phrase rss}</a>
        </div>
