Description of problem

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

In the topic above, it explains how to add glitter or glow or an icon to a username. Well, it tells me in the topic that I need to add the code to CSS and I've adjusted the code to meet my specific forum needs. My question is....where in my CSS do I need to add that code? I've added it to the top and to the bottom and it doesn't work.

I find that the code below works the best. Simply replace the # Symbol with the user's number on everything above text decoration. on everything below it replace only the six ? marks with the proper hex code you wish for the glow. Also, try pasting this code at the bottom of the CSS.
Code:
[href="/u#"], span[data-user="#"]{
text-decoration: none !important;
text-shadow: 0 0 0.3em #??????, 0 0 0.3em #??????, 0 0 0.3em #??????;
}

Hoping this assists! Good Luck!

Unfortunately, that didn't work. I have the code that you provided and I filled it out the way you said. It isn't working.

And by the way, I'm trying to add an icon in front of the "Administrators" group in case anyone is wondering what I'm doing.

Waaa

Here you go @Bazinga!,
This code should put that icon infront of the Administrator group on your forum!

Code:

        a[href="/g1-administrators"] {
            background: url("http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/fatcow/farm-fresh/16/crown-bronze-icon.png") no-repeat;
            padding-left: 19px;
            padding-top: 2px;
        }

If you need more help I would be happy to assist you!

Yes, I was going to add an icon to the "Administrators" group.

But I have a shop set up on the forum and I want to be able to add an icon to a username when someone requests it.

So, I need to be able to do both.

If you are asking for the html color code for the administrators......it's cobalt blue which is #0020C2.

    background:url(http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/fatcow/farm-fresh/16/crown-bronze-icon.png) no-repeat;

Yeah it happened again, I'm really not sure what is wrong. Please look here:
https://help.forumotion.com/t131443-customize-usernames-according-to-group#881088

Make sure the code looks like Ange's. Change the
Code:
#000000
to
Code:
#0020C2
and the **px to 16px.
