Sure! Here's the short version. ;)

1.  Upload the badges to /Themes/default/images - if you have multiple themes you must upload them to all themes for them to show in each theme.

2.  Go to Admin -> Members -> Membergroups -> Edit Membergroups

3.  Click "Modify" on any membergroup.

4.  Change "Number of star images:" to one...or you'll have multiple badges.

5.  In "Star image filename:", enter the name of the image the badge for that membergroup. You must do this part for each membergroup.

No problem. I'll be getting around to adding little things like this sooner or later.

Nice badges! :)

  I think I can do it all except #1   Where and how do I do that?

Use FTP or cPanel's File Manager to upload them to /Themes/default/images. For your other themes upload them to /Themes/(name of theme)/images. (name of theme) = the actual name of the theme.

You did not upload it to the right directory or it will show.

EDIT: You spelled it wrong... should be p_admin31.gif not P_admin31.gif. Capitalization will always make a difference.

Especially, on linux servers...spelling and capitalization is very important. Take a look at your SMF files. A lot of them have caps in the filenames.

Linux forums treats caps as separate letters. Windows servers do not. This is very important to remember. Get in the habit of telling the difference and make sure that you use caps if the file calls for it.

EDIT: Should have said: "Linux servers"  :baghead:
