    Icons for document types

    Hi.

    I've just made a fresh install of Umbraco 4.7.1.1, and installed the FamFamFam icons. Now I can't see the icons in the dropdown on the "Info" tab.

    It says that

    • For performance reasons, icons will not be displayed when there are more than 100 items in the dropdown.

    I would like to return this to "normal", but how can that be changed?

    Thanks in advance!
    Stefan.

    If you want to remove the icons, you can manually delete them from the ~/umbraco/images/umbraco folder. I think if you installed it as a package that maybe you can uninstall it and it'll delete them automatically?

    If you install the Document Type Dashboard you can still see the icons in there.

    Jeroen, that looks very useful to me. It does more than solve my problem :)

    Thank you for your information!

    The dashboard is very handy indeed, but unfortunately not usable when working with media types.

    I wonder why the images of the icons in the list have been removed? I have never seen any performance related issues.
    Can anyone explain how to get them back?

    Thanks :)

    Definitely slows my machine down when all the icons show (in document dashboard at least anyway). I think Tom mentioned he was working on an improved version that hopefully speeds it all up.

    Oh, and in order to get yours back you'd have to drop the number of icons.. unfortunately I don't know what it's capped at though..

    Try to install the FamFamFam icons package. After that it's really slow. It's related to this issue: http://umbraco.codeplex.com/workitem/30511

    It should be an option... no icons by default, but with a setting to list them again...

    I have 113 icons, and about 100 of those are the built in ones I can't delete, very frustrating.

    I think the number of icons before cut-off could be configurable.

    I don't really want anyone picking the default ones anyway, they're not very nice. so the ability to remove those from the list would be awesome.

    I also don't see the point of having (deprecated) next to them all.

    Stopping ranting now. :-)

    I've added this as an issue on codeplex: http://umbraco.codeplex.com/workitem/30747

    >Try to install the FamFamFam icons package. After that it's really slow.

    Well you're just asking for trouble if you install 1,000+ icons to pick 4-5. People should just upload what they need. It's never been slow with sub 150 for me (we don't tend to have more than that).

    Irritating. I've voted on the codeplex work item too. To do it properly, there should not be any dependancy on the Umbraco backend and that icon folder...

    I'm getting the same issue, but I only have 72 images in the ~/umbraco/images/umbraco directory. So why does Umbraco think there are more than 100?

    Is there a config file or database table that stores references to these images? If not, how does umbraco know which ones are depracted? Is it something to do with the sprites images?

    I want to delete the depracted ones as I don't need them, but am unsure if they are used elsewhere in the CMS.

    How does the fam fam package avoid the 100 icon limit?

    Sebastiaan is working on a new icon picker which can show all the images without performance problems. It even has a search bar :).

    Thanks Sabastiaan.

    I've removed the deprecated images that I'm not using. Now I can access the list in the normal way.

    For anyone wanting to know how Umbraco knows which images are deprecated, I had a look at the Umbraco source code. Only the images ~/umbraco/images/umbraco/sprites.png and ~/umbraco/images/umbraco/sprites_ie6.gif are considered current as Umbraco considers the images inside the sprites as the current ones. All the other images in the ~/umbraco/images/umbraco/ directory are considered deprecated, even those added by third party packages, i.e. Contour, uBlogsy, etc
