Hello! The title sort of explains it. I have a Doctor Who/Sherlock crossover RP (link ) and because colors define what your character is, it makes it a bit harder for people to see who the staff members are. I've noticed on other forums I am on, that people can make specific users have a glow around their name to show that they are staff members. How can that be done?

Hello Mearii Shiotsu,

If you want to automatically add a glow to members of a group use the following CSS method.

a span[style="color:HEX COLOR"] strong {
text-shadow:0px 0px 6px #f00;

The code above gives a red glow to members of a certain group. The group of which the glow is applied depends on the hex color added to the selector. For it to work you need to place the exact hex color of your group where it says HEX COLOR.

You can see the hex color of a group by going to :
Administration Panel > Users & Groups > Group administration > Edit a group

Look to group members color, copy out the hex, and then paste it in the selector. Once you have done this apply the code to your stylesheet and submit.
( Administration Panel > Display > Pictures and colors > Colors > CSS stylesheet )

My result being :
a span[style="color:#A200FF"] strong {
text-shadow:0px 0px 6px #f00;
