  • Username HTML Markup

    I tried adding HTML markup to a usergroup, and when I added a member to the group nothing happened. I thought that the usernames might've needed to be updated, so I used the "Update User Names" function in the "Update Counters" section, and still got nothing.

    The markup that I tried was "<font color="#FFFFFF">Username</font>" (I've tried others too), and I'm using 3.5 Beta 2. Am I using this feature incorrectly?

    I'm using markups on vB3.5 Beta 2, and they're working fine for me.

    You have <font color=#FFFFFF> in the first box and, </font> in the second box, right?

    For what it's worth, I haven't enclosed the colour code in " " marks if that makes a difference. Wouldn't have thought so though.

      I've played around with it, and it seems that it's only happening with a single user group. I'm going to create a new group, transfer the members, and delete the old group.

      Hopefully that should fix things.

      EDIT: Nevermind. It's only one usergroup that it is working on; the admin user-group. :\

        Maybe you could try the span tag instead of the font tag.

        For example: <span style="color: white; font-size: 10pt"> in the first box, and </span> in the second.

          Did you check the user manager >> usergroup options >> display usergroup to be certain that the user is set to display as the usergroup that you want it to use for formatting?

          I neglected that option and wound up with the same problem...

            If the user is put in another membergroup the username markup will default to their primary usergroup, unless they select otherwise

              Thanks hellsatan. Much more succinct than my jumbled description.
