Hello, i updated to the new version 1.5.
I had an Icon for every Category, but now in the 1.5 version it dont show on the news page!?

Sorry for my bad english...

Re: News Category Icon wont show!?

How did you show that icon for every category before? The normal way is the following:
1. Define a category URL in Options > Edit Categories
2. Add {category-icon} to the template.

Therefore, please
1. check that there is indeed a category icon set in your categories at Options > Edit Categories (the icons should be displayed there)
2. check that {category-icon} is in the correct(!) template, if you use multiple ones.

If everything seems good, please share a link to your site and we'll look further.

For the record, if English is a problem (not that it seems that way!), I'm a native German speaker. Your English seems great, though, so I suggest we stick to English so that other people can understand and contribute to the problem.

Thanks — what's your template code for "Active News" ? My money is on that there is no {category-icon} in the template(s).

Or the articles aren't in any category

Danke vielmals!

Damit das Bild für die Kategorien erscheint, musst du {category-icon} in den Templates verwenden. Dieser Code wird dann mit dem jeweiligen Kategorie-Icon ersetzt, so wie {author} dann zum Autor wird oder {date} zum Datum.


[loose translation]
The tag {category-icon} has to be in the templates for category icons to be shown. The tag will be replaced with the actual category icon later on, in the same way that {author} will bethe actual author or {date} the date.
