Username Prefix based on groups

Solved Username Prefix based on groups

Post by stelios102 on June 27th 2014, 8:28 am

Hello,

First off I want to say that i've looked into this topic and seen both of the following forums.

http://help.forumotion.com/t123998-prefix-to-usernames?highlight=prefix

http://help.forumotion.com/t96136-group-s-style-on-legend-glitter-icon-glow

That said I've still been unable to accomplish my goal. I want users who are in a group to have a specific Prefix like a tag (ex. [TAG] Stelios102). I've added the code listed below to the CSS sheet in the Administration section General > Colors > CSS Stylesheet and submited it. Before anyone asks I have updated the code for a group on my forums. An example of a group on my forums and how I have added it is also below. However the username tags are not appearing anywhere. Im not sure if the issue is due to users being part of more then one group even if only one of those groups has the tag is causing it or if I've added the CSS to an incorrect CSS sheet.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Code:
a[href="/u1"] span:before {
content: "[ADMIN] ";
font-weight:bold;
}

Code:
a[href="/g7-second-battleground"] span:before {
content: "[2BG] ";
}

Hello,

Try this instead:

For user:

Code:
a[href="/u1"]:before {
content: "[ADMIN] ";
font-weight:bold;
}

Groups:

Code:
a[href="/g7-second-battleground"]:before {
content: "[2BG] ";
}

Ok so i tinkered a bit. The group code you gave me does not seem to modify the group members at all however the below code added the tag after my name.

a[href="/u1"]:before {
content: "[ADMIN] ";
font-weight:bold;
}

I then changed it too this code and that added the tag before my name. However the group members are still not getting tags for some reason. I've added a link to a picture of the CSS sheet. Maybe im doing it wrong.

a[href="/u1"] span:before {
content: "[ADMIN] ";
font-weight:bold;
}

The code for the group will not give all the group members that prefix because it's only a selector for the group, I'm pertaining to this:

Code:
a[href="/g7-second-battleground"]:before

You will need to find the uid of the group members like this:

Code:
a[href="/u1"]:before

Your user id is 'u1' so it was applied to you. You need to find the other ui's of that group members to have the prefix placed on their username, example:

Code:
a[href="/u1"]:before /* User1 of the grup */
a[href="/u20"]:before /*User2 of the group*/
a[href="/u40"]:before /*User 3 of the group */

Once compiled, this would be the code:

Code:
a[href="/u1"]:before ,a[href="/u20"]:before ,a[href="/u40"]:before {
 content: "[2BG] ";
}

To know the u id of the members, click their username link, at the end of the link you'll find their uId.

Im trying to create tags for all members who join these groups. We are talking 100s of people. Is there no way to create a tag that applies itself too all of the members of a group without creating a tag for each individual member? I've seen it done on many of the forums or maybe im just not understanding.

Hi stelios,

Please read the following tutorial for customizing Usernames according to their group.
http://help.forumotion.com/t131443-customize-usernames-according-to-group

A quick example :

In the tutorial above we'll use the selector provided, but instead we'll add the pseudo-element ::before to place our content before the username.

Code:
a span[style="color:#990099"] strong:before {
 content:'[Mod]';
}

The code above will place the texts [Mod] before members of the Support Moderators. You must change #990099 to the color of your group, the tutorial will explain. Wink
