I need some help (RANK & GROUP QUESTION)
« on: February 18, 2012, 11:28:52 AM »
Hi.

I installed SMF today but I need some help. I'll try my best to explain myself well in english.

RANK USER
I want to divide users in two groups: male and female. The Male groups will have his own rank and the Female group is also going to have their own rank (both different from each other). How do I do that?

MORE QUESTIONS

I also want to add the following features (2.0.2 version). Can anyone help me? I want: add videos from youtube, add quick response, add auto-merge and I want to know how can I change the features of the post box (like... how to add buttons and features to the place where we can format our text, add smileys, etc).

Thank you

RANK USER: Create two membergroups, "Male" and "Female". :)

MORE QUESTIONS: Have a look through these:

First, before you install ANY mods, READ MY SIG!!!!

Second, make sure the mods you use are compatible with the version of SMF that you're using.

Also, read through this:

For loads of useful stuff information. ;)

Thanks.

About the Rank User... I created two membergroups like you said but how do I define different ranks to the membergroups?

Example:
Male Group
Rank: Male 1, Male 2, Male 3

Female Group
Rank: Female 1, Female 2, Female 3

Also.. is it possible to change colors? Example: Male - Black, Female, Pink

Thank you

I'd imagine that the best way to do that would be to create a membergroup for each of those, mate.

Change the colours by going to Admin>membergroups and click "Modify", beside the group you want to change.

You'll see "Colour in online list:".

The colour needs to be in Hex.

hi. but I don't want the colour in online list. I want people to see who is a girl or not on topics... her nickname will be pink.

and how do I add a membergroup with a rank to the female group and another one for the male group? I know how to create but I don't know how to do this:

FEMALE GROUP: 0 posts (Female Newbie)
MALE GROUP: 0 posts (Male Newbie)

All of my users will be either female newbie or male newbie and I don't want that. Any help?

I'm not with you. :(

Look to the left, under my avatar...

You'll see "Gender". That shows that I'm male.

You say "All of my users will be either female newbie or male newbie and I don't want that". You don't want them to be male or female? Is there another gender that I don't know about?



I'm not understanding, am I? ;)

lol not really. I'll explain myself in topics so you can understand (sorry, english is not my language). And thanks in advance for your help!

- I want two groups: male and female.
- I want female nicknames to be pink not only in "Who's Online" but also in topics (pink nickname above the avatar)
- I want different ranks for different groups

Example:
MALE GROUP
0-50 posts - Mister Newbie

FEMALE GROUP
0-50 posts - Miss Newbie

I hope you understand now

Right. I'm getting somewhere (Possibly) ;)

The colours of most things are set in the theme's index.css file, which is in the theme's "css" directory.

Have a look through that. It's well commented-out, so you should figure-out the part you need, fairly easily. :) Again, the colours are in Hex format.

Trial-and-error's a good way of figuring that out, as long as you keep a copy of the original file, just in case. ;)

I'm not sure about this "Rank" thing.

What do you mean by "Rank"?

I have the forum in Portuguese so I don't know the right word.. "Rank" is like the activity bar. If you have 50 posts you are Newbie, if you have 1000 you're advanced

Post-count groups.

Yeah, you can do that.

But, it seems that you want a main group with what you might call sub-groups.

If that's what you're after, I'm afraid that SMF doesn't do that. :(

I was able to move 1 female user to the female group and 3 male users to the male group and worked with that thing I called "rank". Male users were "Male Newbie" and the female user was "Female Newbie" (of course those wasn't the real descriptions... it's just so you can understand). Then I tried to move another female user to that group and all users, male and female, were "Male Newbie". Really don't know what happened.

But okay... Maybe I'm pushing too much with SMF lol.

Thank you for everything
