Default Avatar and Find IP

Post by GoohomeET on Mon May 24, 2010 6:18 am

Ok, I'm trying to make a default avatar for those who don't have an avatar set. I put the link into the default avatar box in the admin panel but when I go back to look at the member list, the default avatar doesn't show up.. Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Also for the option of 'Find IP' is that only viewable by the default admin group or are the moderators of a certain forum section able to view it?

Thanks!

Hello,

1) I believe the default image is for only new-users. but I'm not to sure.

2) You can select for your mods or only admins via Admin panel >> Users & Groups ( Tab ) >> Special rights > View the IP = Admins > Save Wink

yes Darren is correct. when setting up the default Avie it will only show for your new members that join.
Also be sure to place a direct link there for the image to appear.

Oh so, it doesn't show for players who don't have an avatar?

EDIT: Also I have 2 questions.. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to make another topic so I'm going to post here. Is it possible to have a popup when you receive a private message? And how can I change it so that when I put in a url but have it covered by like a word, to make the word by default a different color since there's a link attached to it? Thank you

It doesn't show for the members that were registered before you added the No Avatar image. For your two questions:
1. I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think so.
2. Simply use this:
Code:
[url=http://link.com/]Word[/url]
BBCode in your post, of course changing the word and link Wink

Oh, okay. And also I think I didn't explain the second question right.. Like I know how to use the BBCode but I mean like when you post it and others see it, the word is like the same shade of color as any other word that isn't even a link. I wanted to know if there's somewhere, I can set it so that links are a different color by default? Instead of me having to do this:

Code:
[url=http://link.com/][color=cyan]Word[/color][/url]

Hello,

1) Yes, head to ther profile in your nav. bar, then preferences then: Display a [popup when new PM is received = Yes . Save.

2) That'll require some CSS coding which I cannot assist you with Wink

You can change the link colors by editing your CSS. Copy this following CSS tag, head over to the CSS found in your administration panel, CTRL + F, and there you can edit the colors.

Here's the tag that you search for in the CSS:
Code:
/* Links-----------------------------------------------------*/

Once you find that above tag, you will be able to see these following tags under it:

    a:link{ (the default color of links)

    a:visited{ (the color of links that you have visited before)

    a:active{ (links that are still active)

    a:hover{ (the color of the links whenever you hover your cursor over them)



Hope that helps. Cheers. drunken

Rok, thanks for replying and trying to help me out. But I'm not so sure about your instructions. I went to my Admin Panel > Display > Colors > CSS Stylesheet > See your forum basic CSS. Then a window popped up and I did Ctrl + F and searched for the tag, it came up and I tried to edit the colors but it didn't let me edit it.. Do you know what I'm doing wrong? Also the option for 'Deactivate the basic CSS' is set to 'No' if that matters.

But on the big white box that appears after you click CSS Stylesheet only shows the following:
Code:
body  {
background-position:  center;
}

.bodylinewidth {
width:900px}

Thanks again.

You know that popup window with heaps of CSS? Press CTRL + A to highlight all of that, then CTRL + C to copy it, then paste it in the white box in the other spot. That way you can customize your CSS. Then find the links again and edit the colours Wink
