How to change color of a usergroup?

Post by helpneeded22 » Sun Aug 19, 2018 4:03 am

I am trying to create a special title that I can assign to veteran users on my forum. I want their name to appear a different color like it does for admins and moderators. The best way I thought I could accomplish this, was to create a Group.

In the group settings, I changed the group's legend color. I thought this would change the color of the user's name and/or also note that they are in the group when they make a post. (Whenever you post, there is a little side panel/box that shows your name, title and other things, so I thought it would also show the group(s) the user is in.)

Is there any way to do this through the regular ACP settings?

You can change the group color, but that user/s have to be in that group.

I finally found the missing element. After assigning the user to the group, I didn't click on "make this the default group for the user".

Working good now.

Make that group their default group.

I also have noted that if I first create a special rank title, then I can designate that as the default title for group members. Now its working exactly the way I wanted it to -- just a little learning curve for me :)
