you can also add different on.gif and off.gif for each board, but that is another topic.

yea thats a bit complicated too with code alterations as well

the only issue i find with adding custom icons is: the image quality

most of the icons i have - have a rough edge which dosent look so nice on darker backgrounds

it would be cool if i cold find a website with smooth edged icons

same issue exists with many smileys and rough white edged
