Different User Colors
Hi,

I'd like to give Moderators a different color in the sidebar and everywhere where their Names show (most recent post, user list, moderator list etc.) I've already managed to change the color on the sidebar but everything there is in a different color now.. (Date, number of times read.. etc.).

Can anyone please tell me how i can change only the color of the name- not the info- and how I can change moderator colors globally?


Thanks,

Mike

Not sure how you're doing this, but it sounds like you didn't close a tag properly if it's changing the colours of everything. Maybe if you posted your changes we could see what's wrong.

Hi Adrian,

here is the piece of code I changed:

user_status%>username=<%escape_url user_username%><%else%>user=<%user_id%><%endif%>;<%hidden_query%>">
<%if post_user_is_moderator%>
<%moderator_font%>
<%endif%>
<%if user_status eq 3%>
<%administrator_font%>
<%endif%>
<big><%nbsp post_username%></big>
</a>
<%else%>
<%if post_user_is_moderator%>
<%moderator_font%>
<%endif%>
<%if user_status eq 3%>
<%administrator_font%>
<%endif%>
<big><%nbsp post_username%></big>
<%endif%>
<%if post_user_is_moderator%>
<%moderator_font%>
<%endif%>
<%if user_status eq 3%>
<%administrator_font%>
<%endif%>
</b>
<br>
<%user_title%>
<%if post_user_is_moderator%>

After the last line - please try adding:

</font>

You just don't seem to have closed it =) (although its hard without seeing the whole template)

Hi Andy,

unfortunately that didn't work..

here is the whole template: I took out the </font> again..

<%--

File
====
include_post_display.html

Description
===========
Every time a post is displayed (including a preview or
delete confirmation) this page will be used to format the
post.

If change this page, you'll probably also want to make the
equivelant changes in the "default_top" template set.

Re: [Acoisa] Different User Colors In reply to
Ya, thats cos its done via an <a href, so simply putting <font color=""> around the title, doesn't work (cos it gets overwritten by the link factor).

Adding in a "class", like:

Code:
<a <%if user_status eq 3%>class="administrator"<%elsif post_user_is_moderator%>class="moderator"<%endif%> href="gforum.cgi?<%if user_status%>username=<%escape_url user_username%><%else%>user=<%user_id%><%endif%>;<%hidden_query%>">

..and then adding this to include_css.html, adding:


Code:
.administrator a:link, .administrator a:visited, .administrator a:hover, .administrator a:active {
color: red;
}

.moderator a:link, .moderator a:visited, .moderator a:hover, .moderator a:active {
color: green;
}

..and that should work fine Cool

Cheers
