Bar between posts with username on it between posts

Post by ivanfig »

Is there an option to add a bar between posts in a topic and have the bar display just the username of the person that is responsible for the post?

Right now, the "header" of a post shows something like this [the word post is actually a little rectangle which appears to be a link to the post itself]:

Topic Name
Post by user1» Wed Nov 30, 2016 5:26 pm

I want to change it to [the --- is just meant to be a text version of a colored "bar" with the user text in it]:

Topic Name

I would first consult your theme stylist/developer. That looks to be a template edit, and I have to ask more information to help. What style theme are you using and, which phpbb version is installed?

Also could you please supply a screenshot (or hyperlink me to guest/demo view) of what you are currently looking at, so that I may be sure of what the real objective is. I think I understand what you want, but doesn't many styles already have a sidebar showing poster information? Yea, let me see what we're working with here please. And I can supply the template edits.

If you already understand template edits, then a simple html <hr> is a standard to display a line 100% width of screen.

Also, css may be used here if you're better with CSS, and css is more recommended. You could do a ::after {border-bottom:1px;}
