Hi, hope this hasn't been answered too many times before!

I'm looking for a mod that will change the colour of the text a certain member posts. I.e. each time the real Sophie Ellis Bextor answers a thread I want her text to appear in pink.

Is this possible?

I imagine it would be fairly simple to do in the ubb_lib_posting.cgi file... not that I am a whiz at it... wink

An:
if {usernumber = whatever}
then TextColor = pink;
else something else smile

like I say, do not try that at home, your site will break, but some of the more knowledgeable developers might be able to actually give you a usable bit of code to insert... might not be a bad idea for other sites for their staff, etc...

Thanks Allen, that sounds like just the sort of solution I'm looking for.

And I think other boards could benefit from it too. There will always be imposters and there will always be a need to protect people from them. We all know that people don't read help files or explanation text so there is a need to clearly identify members.

So how about it guys wink

Hi

I had a need for something similar.

What I wanted to do though is change the background colour of the users message rather than
the text.

The code for what I have done is here

I am new at cgi/perl so my nesting skills are rather poor at the moment.
The code does work in v6.1 beta 1.4

Allthough it is, in my case, used to identify one member, I think it would be easy to modify it to suit as many as you wish.

Regards

Hehe... I am looking for a similar thing.. Only i want the membername in both the forums and the individual posts to have a different color.. Not the text of the message, just the membername...

Any ideas on how to do this?

Hi LK,

sorry for not replying sooner (holiday) but thanks for that code.

I've got it to change the member name to pink but can't quite get it to change the text to pink too. Am I missing something or is this code not intended for that job?

Just wanted to bump this to the top again.

Can anyone help me understand how to change the text colour of the posts of any particular member?

The code above changes the user name to a specified colour so I hope that its possible to change the body text colour too.

Thanks, and sorry for spelling colour the UK way laugh
