Solved Problem changing color post for forum staff

Post by mrgates12 on September 16th 2012, 3:51 am

Hi

So I've browsed through to figure out how I can change staff's background color (image), like the staffs have it here on FM. I tried the methods I've found in here, but the closest I got, was 100% color change. I want to have the color to fade from left to right.

Please note that I have phpbb2 installed, and are very happy with the template I've got. Thank you.

Edit: the method I tried was from Rideem at http://www.malware-site.www/t17p30-how-to-modify-the-post-background-of-a-specific-user

Thanks for replying. I'le followed all your steps, but no luck just yet. To make a summary of everything I've done,

I started off adding js:
Code:
var escapeRegExp;(function(){var a=RegExp("[-\\[\\]\\/\\{\\}\\(\\)\\*\\+\\?\\.\\\\\\^\\$\\|]","g");escapeRegExp=function(b){return b.replace(a,"\\$&")}})();var postbg={add:function(a,c){a=escapeRegExp(a);a=a.replace(/\s?,\s?/g,"|");$(function(){var b=$(".postprofile").get();for(i=0;i<b.length;i++)RegExp("^"+a+"$","g").test($(b[i].getElementsByTagName("a")[1]).text())&&$(b[i]).closest(".post").addClass(c)})}};postbg.add('CoolDesign, Deathstreem'', 'specialposts');
Also, I did just like your tutorial, except replacing usernames.

Then, I added the CSS, like so:
Code:
/* Staff background-----------------------------------------*/
.specialposts {
    background: url("http://i48.servimg.com/u/f48/17/48/49/15/photo10.png") repeat-y scroll left top #E5F1F9;
}

That's pretty much everything I've done. In case you need to have a look yourself, here's my forum adress;

Code:
)})}};postbg.add('CoolDesign, Deathstreem'', 'specialposts');

not sure if this effecting your js file mrgates, but after deathstreem you have two '', it should be as so

Code:
postbg.add('CoolDesign, Deathstreem','specialposts');

let me know after you have fixed this what occurs, if still not correct ill take a closer look into your website

ok so lets start off from step 1 then, if you can give me about 30 minutes ill check everything out on your site. Do you have a login for guest/help? If so just pm and ill get down to some of it.

I checked up on some things, i see 3 js files loaded;

Code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="/99829.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/14988.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/15653.js"></script>

I know one is for the new like system phpbb3
other one is navbar by dion
and other one is Fancybox

------

point being the js file you need is not loading in topics. Did you tick IN TOPICS?
Also sometimes fancybox will overpower other codes, so what i do is generate the css for other js on top of the css for fancy.

Let me know about your js file in topics, and what number it is i.e. 14988.js 99829.js 15653.js what is this ones number.


ONE MORE THING Smile
for some reason your source calls two jQuery lib
Code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.2/jquery.min.js">
and
Code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js">

You only need one if you added one just delete. Sorry for all the edits Mad

Hello, and thanks for replying!

If you registered to my forum, we could discuss on the forum chat box there. Besides, I could give you permissions to edit the CSS and JS? Smile

EDIT: Problem solved, it's now working. :wouhou:
