Why should an admin have to edit 50+ forums to get this working?
Why should an admin have to edit hundreds of users to get this working?
Why should an admin have to edit numerous usergroups to get this working?

In theory, a good idea. In practice, not so much.
You have a good point. I hope the coder will look into it sometime soon and some of my ideas that I posted before.

security tokens are missing for mod dropdowns, so i wouldn't install on stable unless you want to compare it to the current template and add them manually.

Exactly! Try using Threadbit Coloring Based on Thread Status. With that Hack I've never got any problems. Especially not in vB 3.7. This hack runs strong without any problems till today

Well, it seems that all are agreed that we need to allow for the users to have this option set to "yes" be default. And there are ways to do an sql query to set all current users to "yes", but this does not solve the problem with new users.

OK, I figured it out. If you want to make all the options set to "yes" by default. That is,
  • Enable for this forum category thread listing background colors? (Forum Manager)
  • Can this Usergroup Use the Forumdisplay Thread Listing Background Color? (Usergroup Manager)
  • Thread Listing Background Color Legend (UserCP)
All you have to do is the following:
Step 1:
Edit the "product-thread_listing_bgcolors_english.xml" file
Step 2:
Look for
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace it with
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Step 3:
Upload the new product via the "Manage Products" link in your ACP
Step 4:
Enter the "Usergroup Manager" and edit any of the usergroups. This will rebuild the BitFields.

If you have already done this, just uninstall it, make the changes and then reinstall it.

It just worked for me perfectly.

Is it possible to make it so that guests can also see the background colours on the threads without having to register?

Including, is it possible so members won't have the choice whether they can or cant see the background colours on the threads.

How about this? I want the option to be forced so they can't choose not to see the thread listing background colours.

hello,
a question:
how we can change the default options AFTER install?

a suggestion:
Include in readme how we can change forumdisplay to build a forumdisplay_bgcolors. A lot of people have forumdisplay already changed and maybe is useful some instruction how we can change the template.

But - tks a lot

^agree its a nice hack but its a hassle to get it to work. i think ive followed every step but it still doesnt show up and there should be a way to set this for all users from ACP in any single usergroup. So I am uninstalling
