Post New Thread From Forum Home

I created this modification so that my site members can post a new thread from the forum home. All I did was re-use the RSS button code, nothing special. You will have to play around with the code to align it how you want. I just recently converted my site over from vBulletin and this is one of the template mods I missed.

Example:

www.the8thlegion.com/board/

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.

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