The solution is font awesome or glyphicons or something else. Replacing old images with new images is not a good idea.

Dear MichaelC we can use font awesome icons in phpBB. it is better than the images. i research about font awesome and i understand if use this we don't need images. font awesome is css and we have modern icons.

i agree with Kamahl19.

It's already been discussed numerous times in tickets, the forum and IRC.

3.1 will use sprites and 3.2 will most likely use scalable icons (like fontAwesome) ;). Hanakin already assembled some icons to use (just for testing): http://midaym.com/test/mino/buttons.html

I also have an RFC to update the css we are currently using for the image sprites to follow along the lines of the same way that font-awsome implements them which is what I m working on at the moment. This will require redesigning the images for all the icons in a higher resolution though.
