Hy Ries,

browse the constant-editor for "PLUGIN.MM_FORUM - FILE PATHS", there you 
can change the directory for images.

Furthermore you can set the path for each single image in "TypoScript 
Object Browser" => plugin.tx_mmforum_pi1.topicIcon.file.[1-40].file.

In plugin.tx_mmforum_pi1.images you can set a lot of imagenames, to 
change the default names which should be fetched from the configured 

Look for your version of mm_forum, current version is 0.1.7.
I had to download this version manually form TER because the 
extension-manager didn't found the actual version.
