Hi,
you have one default color for names. If you want to have multiple colored names users must be in groups.
You have a tutorial here on how to do that

Thanks for the reply Nera.

OK, I understand.

Can the default colour be changed by me to, say white? If so where do I find it. I've looked in Display>Pictures and Colours>Colours but can't see anything that appears to pertain to user names.

Thanks.

It should be in AP >> Display >> Colors >> Link color I think. I don't use it often :S
If you want a CSS code can you tell me what is your forum version?

Nice one Nera. It's actualy 'visited link colour', but it's sorted now. Thanks a million.

If you want a CSS code can you tell me what is your forum version?

Erm!!! I'm all very new to this so have no idea what a CSS code is or why I would need one. Can you explain please?

May I remind you that double/triple posting isn't tolerated unless separated by 24 hours (Use the edit button) Wink

Sorry if I sound dumb but I don't know what you mean!! Where did I double or triple post?

OK. So admin colour can be changed 'as a group'?

That still leaves me with why did 'Skid' get changed to white but not 'beowulf'

Beowolf is and admin? Right?
His color is assigned from a group.
Go to Users and grups >> Admin grup >> Change the color if you want.

Oops! my apologies. I'd forgotten I'd added him to Admin, while playing around.

Go to Users and grups >> Admin grup >> Change the color if you want.

Is this where you mean?

Tried it but it doesn't work for me.

Yes. Your administrator group should be blue now. Change the color and press save.

Make it a visible group. Stick visible and change the color.

Hey.... bingo.!!!!!

Nera, may I take this opportuniy to thank you for bearing with an old geezer. Many thanks for your support.

I'm still not sure what you meant by double or triple posts though.

Got another question about nav bar button colours but I'll start a new thread on that one.

Cheers,

Al.
