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

Mine uses dropdown boxes, that one could most likely mess up your forum using boxes like that.

That one also uses color codes, thats too hard for members

Theoldwiz, wouldn't it be better if it would be:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Only one tag would decrease the code length by... 13 characters

Yeah I am definetely interested in the color and font for usernames. All I have is so they can put the hex code or font into a box for their usernames and like you said, it is alot easier if they can just scroll down and choose from a selection. Marked installed btw, thanks.

In my honest opinion, I think that you should just use <span> for this, regardless of them being the "same thing". I also prefer giving users a link to a site that provides HEX color codes. In addition, having in a drop-down the font weight (bold, italic). Basically, giving the user control while not giving him too much. Plus, he/she provides his/her own font.

Also, TCE_Killa, wouldn't colored usernames confuse people? o_o;

Nope, I already have colored usernames on my forum and the users love it, they can also bold and glow their usernames and choose a font. It would be good for a drop down list though of a selected list of fonts and colors that I decide.

and done

All that does is gives usergroups a colour. Doesn't let them choose their own color.

This is how you let them choose their own username color and font:

What I would like to know is, if it is possible like on the default selective font & color on posts, to have that for the username font and color. Instead of just a box, use a drop down list of fonts and colors.
