Make member link color as gradient text-color
« on: February 21, 2019, 09:00:56 AM »
Hello, I have a question about changing member color link like using custom css to make gradient color, I've tried Member Color Link package, but it's not work, the output says The package you are trying to download or install is either corrupt or not compatible with this version of SMF.

Please check attachment, there is an example of what I want, look at Zomboy name, that using CSS3 Gradient, right?

Do you guys have a good way for it?

Thank you!

None of the existing mods support it as far as I know.

And it still looks to be Chrome only at the moment.

https://css-tricks.com seems to be using that as well. Looks like it's working in FF too. They should have an article somewhere on how it's done.

I don't think so - not without recoding significant locations

and even the member color mod wouldn't allow this sort of thing (I don't think)
-- but you can install it in 2.0.x  https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/How_can_I_install_a_mod_that_doesn%27t_work_in_my_SMF_version


yeah, it's webkit enabled browsers only...

personally, I despise it... but that's just me. :)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Unless csstricks made some fallback, I could edit the css there to see the changes on Firefox.

You could get it done with individual classes with css to match, or just make the member color print the gradient, instead of color. Shouldn't be too difficult.

Other than being a rewrite of any of the mods to do it :(

I recall Member Color had the colors added in a single place (including the html for the link), using the input from the group, and then used that everywhere. But it's been long enough that I could be wrong. I don't even remember what I was meddling with it for, maybe to add custom member selected colors.
