  • [Forum] How to set username color

    Use the HTML Markup function:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup -> Username HTML Markup


    1st:
    <span style="color:#xxxxxx">

    2nd:
    </span>

    ...with 'xxxxxx' being the hexcode of the color you want to use.

        Is there a heirarchy of usergroups where one usergroup would override the settings of another?

        I have tried this setting exactly as described above but it is in Custom/Additional usergroup and the username never changes. The user I am testing this on is in the Registered User group as the primary and then also in a second usergroup(where this markup exists) as an additional group.

          Each user must choose which usergroup they want to be associated with in their user Settings.

            Ok I missed how that answers my question of which user group overrides the other. The user already belongs to the user group that I want the username markup to apply to.

            EDIT: Nevermind, I figured it out. You have to change the Display Usergroup

              As I said in regards to the HTML markup, the user chooses which usergroup they want to be associated with. That is not something you set.

                I have a question about this please...

                Once the HTML markup is done and saved, is there a need to rebuild cache.. or anything?

                And I presume this method of colorizing works same on a PRIMARY usergroup, such as ADMIN?

                THANKS AGAIN for your help!

                  It should work immediately. You may need to clear your browser cache to see it though.
