Custom document type icons/thumbnails 3

When creating or editing a  document type you are able to select an icon and a thumnail image from a dropdown.

The icon will show up in the content section and the thumbnail will be used in the ‘Create Page’ dialog. Giving different document types a different icon/thumbnail is a good way to keep the content section a bit more editor friendly.

It’s also verry easy to add your own custom icons/thumbnails the only thing you need to do is add your images to the folders where these images are stored

Thumbnails:

\umbraco\images\thumbnails

Icons:

\umbraco\images\umbraco

So to add this icon shop  to the icons dropdown I just need to copy it into the right directory. Afterwards it will show up in the icon dropdown and I can use this on my document types.
