    So, can I use that if-statement to use something like post-order in the thread (instead of the postcount as it currently uses) to be able to stop it from messing up when encountering a post from a Tachy user?

    Yep, I just checked. There's no other way for ordinary members to see that a post/user is set as Tachy than seeing the post count skip a number.

    Well, they did in 3.0.7, but I didn't check 3.5.0.

    Damn, I thought they'd fixed this in 3.5.

    Tachy Goes to Coventry

    I've customized my postbit template (legacy) so that the first post has the class alt1 (white color), and the second has the class alt2 (blue color), the third post has the class alt1 (white color) ... and so on.

    This is the code I've used (snip):

    Code:
    <td <if condition="$post[postcount] % 2 == 0">class="alt2"<else />class="alt1"</if>
    Now, if I use the Tachy Goes to Coventry feature, the forum members (who can't see the Tachy posts) will see that the posts are missing because the colors don't act like they should do. Let me give you an example.

    This is what an admin/mod sees in a thread:

    - Post #1 = White
    - Post #2 = Blue
    - Post #3 = White
    - Post #4 = Blue (tachy post)
    - Post #5 = White
    - Post #6 = Blue

    And this is what an ordinary member sees in a thread:

    - Post #1 = White
    - Post #2 = Blue
    - Post #3 = White
    - Post #4 = [hidden] (tachy post so it's invisible)
    - Post #5 = White
    - Post #6 = Blue

    They will see two 'white' posts and will notice that one 'blue' post is missing. Is there something I can do to get around this problem? Perhaps rework the if-statement?
