My bad, it's sos_bbcodes.CSS, I forgot the s in my install instructions. Fixed now. :)

how to upload font in FTP where???
FontAwesome doesn't need to be uploaded via FTP. You can just add the code from their website in your page container template. Would provide a link but I'm on my phone right now.

where is that in admin panel??
Log into your ACP and go to the Appearance tab. Go to the Templates of your style and search for the PAGE_CONTAINER template. Somewhere before the closing </head> tag, add the following code:
Code:
<link href="//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.0.3/css/font-awesome.css" rel="stylesheet">

Can the bbcodes be limited to staff?
The built-in XenForo BB Code manager doesn't allow for permission control sadly. You could try @cclaerhout 's BB Code manager add-on, which includes an easy way to limit BB Code to only certain usergroups, but this BB Code might have to be redone to work with it.

@mistypants Can you make it possible to have a individual titles, please? For example: [sos=warning|The new Title]The warning text[/sos] and if no title is set then use the text from the phrase.

The add-on uses phrases, so you can easily change them to your liking.

I can look into adding more options (like a custom title) as well as using images instead of Font Awesome but no promises on time, got a few papers to write. ;)

I know but the phrase is global. I want a other title for the warning on thread 10 as on thread 12.

Hello,
Translating the title of the box does not work for me as it is still showing Warning, Information ... etc

Is there anyway to get around this and display the translation?

Which phrases are you editing? You may be editing the phrases used in profile tabs, which, of course, wouldn't change that.

for instance sos_error
with the original phrase being Error

Okay, so you are editing the phrases that came with the add-on. Good.

It's possible it's a cache issue, which sometimes happens. If you clear your cache, do the phrases update? If not, then I'd just wait for Misty to assist you further. I wouldn't know where to begin troubleshooting.

Do you have the correct language selected to display? That's about all I can think of. Have you successfully translated other phrases?

If you want to, you can go into sos_bbcodes.css and edit the xen phrases to your translations.
