Color username based on membergroup?
« on: February 06, 2013, 08:15:32 pm »
Hi there,


On my forum, I have (of course) several membergroups and I'd like to be able to distinguish them clearly. I am looking for a code that will change the color of the poster that appears next to the post, based on membergroup. For example, I am an Administrator, and the color of Administrators is gold on my forum, so I would like my name to appear in gold next to my posts.


Now when searching this forum, I found this topic on changing the background of a post, based on a membergroup. I tried tweaking it so it would not change the background, but the color of the username, but obviously I didn't succeed. (I inserted the code correctly, since it would change the background to gold before trying to tweak it).
Now this is the code I tried (after I tweaked it a bit):


Code: [Select]

<script>
function xboi209_colormembergroupposts(membergroup,color){$("li.membergroup:contains('"+membergroup+"')").closest(".poster h4 a").css("color",color)}xboi209_colormembergroupposts("Administrator","gold");
</script>


Could anybody help me?

Did you include the jquery call/load from the top of membergroup color topic?

Yes I did (otherwise the code wouldn't work for the background of the post either) ;)

Code: [Select]
<script>function xboi209_colormembergroupposts(a,b){$("li.membergroup:contains('"+a+"')").each(function(){$(this).closest("div.poster").children("h4").children("a").eq(1).css("color",b)})}xboi209_colormembergroupposts("Administrator","gold");</script>
It would have been nice if you posted in the codes support board.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

Thank you very much, this did the trick!


And sorry about posting in the wrong board, I'll keep it in mind for next time.
