It will check to see if you have Reputation enabled. If you do not, it will not show the reputation in the menu. It will also check to see if you have the "Threads Started by User in Postbit and Profile for vB 4" product installed on your site. If you do not, the thread count will not show in the menu.

Done!
Enjoy!

NOTE: There is also an Advanced Version (paid) available that allows each user to add up to 5 links of their choosing (instead of the Admin having to do it for everyone), as well as a Search menu that allows you to add settings for how many days you want to search for (2 days, 7, days, 12 days, 180 days, etc.) that is only available through my site. If anyone is interested, contact me via PM for details.

Boofo I need help to change the font color and backround color of the categories of (statistics,miscellaneous,posts) so as to suit better the colors of each of my installed skins. I would also like to make these three phrases bold so as to make the difference from the link where the font is normal. How could I do that? Is it possible?

Am I also wondering if (in future updates of course) you could add the possibility to admins after widing a little the space of each link, to add html script of a tiny image ie 10 px to make the mod look more impressive to users eyes.

I had that added at one time but decided to take it out since Subscribed Threads is already there under the Quick Links menu.

The code you added to the additonal.css is what you need to edit for what you want. That handles the sub-head lines.

As far as adding an image, I had thought about that, but as you can see from a few users in this thread, they are already having issues with spacing in the menu due to screen size on their end. I will look into it further and see what I can figure out with, though.

Yup, plus the images before the text of the url. In the admin defined url it's easy as the only thing you have to do is paste html script of the image before the title. But in the other links of your mod needs template edit but I am not such an expert to do it.

The answer in your question in yes...

As far as the images go, that is a slippery slope. How do you know what image to have for what link? Also, all you would need is one admin trying to like to an over-sized image to blow it all apart.

As for as the background color of the sub-head line, try replacing the additional.css code with this:

Actually, Mike, now that I have looked into it, it wouldn't be that hard to make another setting for the icon images. BUT... unless they used icons for ALL of the additional links, it would look really out of place with links staggered. Do you have an idea for a standard image that could be added before all of the additional links?

You do not know....you choose. Icons are millions found through websearching.

An image of avout 15-px worked perfect to me. It suits the mod, taking into account the current dimensions of the links backround.

Did the new additional.css code work better for you?

Yes....just installed it!

Perfect! I think you should change the first post and renew the existing code with this one.

Don't you mean "deserve" and not "reserve"?

It is not going to be real easy to do, but I will get it figured out. I have the settings made, now I need to get the icons to show up in the right place.
