HowTo activate team badges

(1/6) > >>

With SMF it is very easy to create badges for your forum staff.

These are the steps to create badges for administrators and global moderators:

1st: create the badge graphics, for example "badge_admin.gif" and "badge_gmod.gif" (in classical style attached to this post)   

2nd: upload the badge images created in the 1st step into your forum theme "images" folder.

3rd: browse to your forum admin menu, select the menu option "edit member groups"

4th: edit the member group "Administrator", modify the number of stars from "5" to "1" and alter the image name from "staradmin.gif" to "badge_admin.gif"

5th: edit the member group "Global Moderator", modify the number of stars from "5" to "1" and alter the image name from "staradmin.gif" to "badge_gmod.gif"


Variation: language dependent badges

You could even activate language dependent badges. For that you have to create the language dependent badge graphic and upload that into your images/xxx folder (where xxx is your langauge). Then in the 4th and 5th step set the image name to "$language/badge_admin.gif" (resp. "$language/badge_admin.gif"  ).

You've listed yourself as a moderator of that board, and so SMF dutifully says you are one.
