Hello,

This mod allows users to select their default posting font and color. You will have to select this at registration and can update it whenever you want in profile.

First you must make two new single selection menu user profile fields. Options for them are below.

Profile field one:

Title: Default Post Color

Description: What color your posts show up as?

Options:

Black
Blue
Green
Red
Pink
Orange
Purple

Set Default: Yes, but no first blank option

Display Order: Doesnt Matter

Field Requiried: Yes, at registration and profile updating

Field Editable by User: Yes

Private Field: No

Field Searchable on Members List: No

Show on Members List: No


Profile field two:

Title: Default Post Font

Description: What do you want your default post font to be?

Options:

Arial
Arial Black
Arial Narrow
Book Antiqua
Century Gothic
Comic Sans MS
Courier New
Fixedsys
Franklin Gothic Medium
Garamond
Georgia
Impact
Lucida Console
Microsoft Sans Serif
Palatino Linotype
System
Tahoma
Times New Roman
Tribuchet MS
Verdana

Set Default: Yes, but no first blank option

Display Order: Doesnt Matter

Field Requiried: Yes, at registration and profile updating

Field Editable by User: Yes

Private Field: No

Field Searchable on Members List: No

Show on Members List: No

Now go to the user profile field manager, and jot down the two field numbers of the new fields listed on the right side of the two fields. Along with that, write down what number goes with what field. Please note this is not the display number, its the number next to it that says fieldX

When you create a profile field, just to the left of the order numbers it will say field(number here). Use the numbers for the font color and face and plug it in for X. Starting to sound like a math teacher..lol.

Anyway, love it and thank you, thank you, thank you!!

One question... what if an user wants to change colors when making a post... will that work?
Will it ever integrate within the quickreply or editor?

It switches instantly. Im only good with template edits so creating something that complex could get hard. If anyone ever wants to team up though I have great ideas, and that would surely be one of em

Used on 3.6, have been waiting for this Many thanks


Edit: Does not appear to work - the fields appear in the user control panel, but after making a selection the posts do not show the new default face/colour.

Edit2: Dug up the old code from here http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ght=font+color which is working - so perhaps it is your coding?

Would it be some of the differences between 3.6 and 3.7? Not a coder here but it worked with no issues for me on 3.7.
