Color Username in Post Info?
« on: September 05, 2008, 07:11:56 PM »
I was wondering if there was any way to grab the color from a group's online list color and make the usernames of that group's members that color in the post info of there posts. Wow that must make no sense, but it's the only way I can explain it. :/

I was also wondering if there was a way to stick an image in front of a group's user's usernames.

Sorry but I was wondering the same thing, but I'd like the Username colors in posts but not on the board index (under the thread title) if you know what I mean...

Yeah, but I dont want the colors to show under the thread names.

However, if there is no way to do this I will just use that mod. I'm gonna try and do what bajusi has just suggested...

Actually you can select where to show and where to not show with that mod. But we can help better if you provide some screen shots of what you want exactly.

Okay, see the settings of the mod I linked:

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=download;mod=111;id=56675;image

And we have this mod but it is old, so I don't suggest using that:

I am interested in the color rank mod too.  Should I install the one listed that is old?? Or one from this link 
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=111  If I am to use that link, which one do I select and how do I add it on?? Install - Unzip??  etc etc??

I am kinda clueless, only had SMF up ONE day... So any guidance would be appreciated!! I had a version of Phpbb that I HATED so we converted to SMF..  ((Luv it BTW)) O:)

Welcome HplyEvrAftr. :)

I'd suggest this one for you:

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=111

You can install that from Admin CP >> Package Manager >> Download Packages area.

But member color doesn't work at user's profile pages ( i mean action=profile )

Any chance to colourize (not a static color) user's nicks on that page ?

I never used the mod to be honest. Better you ask in it's own support topic, here.
