Changing Username/Usergroup Style Per Theme

An Audentio Design Creation

This may just be common sense for some, but it is something that I use and I find it very useful.

Have you ever wanted to have many colored usergroups and many colored styles, but didn't want the two conflicting with each other? Here is how you can do it.

Go to Users and Groups >> Manage Groups >> Administrators (or which ever group you want).

Find Usergroup Style. The default for this is:

<span style="color: green;"><strong><em>{username}</em></strong></span>

Delete all of this and replace it with:

<span class="administrator_name">{username}</span>

Now you can go to Themes >> Modify / Delete >> Pick a theme > Edit Theme Style. Scroll all the way to the bottom and find: Additional CSS.

In this area, put this at the very top:

.administrator_name {
color: red;
text-decoration: underline;
font-weight: bold;
font-style: italic;

This will make everyone who is an admin have a red, bold, underlined, and italic username. You can play around with the colors and attributes to your needs. For more information on CSS, please go to W3's CSS Reference.

The whole point of this is to be able to have a different style per theme for your usergroups, so go edit your other styles. Maybe, if you have a redish theme, you will want your admins to show up green, and maybe on your blue themes where your admins are orange, you may want them to be a pink on your blue theme. Who knows, you are the admin, you make the choices!
