Solved Let users pick their username color

Post by Necrosis on December 24th 2011, 5:29 am

Hello, I was just wondering if it is possible for users to pick a color for their username? Like in their posts and such things. If this has already been asked please point me to that forum thanks ^^ I also had found this on another site about phpbb2 and what not but the thing I DL'd had terrible directions and really made no sense. I rather just ask the people who know what they are doing

The only way that I know of is to make an administrator add a color code to the CSS Stylesheet

You could create groups of colors there allowed to have and let the users pick which groups they are in. You can even make them have a certain post limit to get that colored username.

Hi,

They can pick their username color but you must set it.

You can open a topic and let them choose in it and add it thrugh CSS.

Code:
a[href="/u62061"] {
    color: #AF5F5F !important;
}

You would need to change the 62061 to the users ID which you can take from the browser when you click on the users name for it to work on him.

It would be a silly thing to do if you will do it for many users.

There is no system as such where they can pick it and set it them selves on FM unless you do what Nick suggested.
