Boy, I have been away from UBB too long. In Images & Icons there is a "News Images" tab that has one image as default (image of a news paper) with option to upload additional images. That part I figured out. However, it says these images are available to assign to a forum. Ok, swell. HOW? When I go to edit a forum, I see a link at the bottom of the page that says "Forum Image" with a link that will let me change it - but those News Icons are not among the icons that are deployed in the popup. So, my question is, how do I assign a News Icon to a forum?

Actually you're right, That image should be in the Forum Images tab as there is no way to assign the images in the News Images to a forum.
I can not see a way to use those images in that News Images tab on a Forum. Can you add that image to your Forum Images and then try using it that way?
Well, after an hour of futzing around, I figured out how it works. First - you have to have a forum added as Forums to pull news from: in the Portal Settings. THEN - when you add a new topic (or edit existing topic) to that forum, you will now have an option in the editor to "Add a News Icon". That lets you select from those News Icons. However, it doesn't put it in front of the forum like a forum icon. What it does it puts the icon at the beginning of the article that the PORTAL pulls from that forum. (See Screen Shot that I "think" I attached to this reply.)
:snicker: Just as I'm about to type that the forum has to be set as a news forum to see the news images; I look down and see you figured it out, lol.
But yes, as you've observed it is not a forum icon, it's ultimately just an icon for the portal page; an option that, if the system was created today, probably wouldn't be there.
