could you post some screen shots of this?
also does this change every mod/admin post? or can they choose to have a few posts normal?

Hi,

I edited the reserved post for author to add a demo link and 2 screenshots.

In this version, all admin and moderators posts are colorized. In the next version, there will have a checkbox in posting.php to enable/disable this feature for the post.

Best, ;)

awesome, I always wanted an Administrative comment, I'll have to edit the next version to have to use a picture of mine instead of just the background color changing

but AWESOME mod..

Hi, Théonaute !!!
Nice idea !!
One thing: there is a mistake in the install instuctions ;)
In language/en/acp/board.php it says to add

Code: Select all

//Begin : Colored background messages for admin and moderators
$lang = array_merge($lang, array(
	'LOAD_CBGM_ADMINS'			=> 'Change background color for administrators\' posts.',
	'LOAD_CBGM_ADMINS_EXPLAIN'		=> 'When reading a topic, administrators' background color posts is change.',
	'LOAD_CBGM_MODOS'			=> 'Change background color for moderators\' posts.',
	'LOAD_CBGM_MODOS_EXPLAIN'		=> 'When reading a topic, moderator' background color posts is change, if moderators have moderators'permissions in the current forum.',
));
//End : Colored background messages for admin and moderators
It should write

Code: Select all

//Begin : Colored background messages for admin and moderators
$lang = array_merge($lang, array(
	'LOAD_CBGM_ADMINS'			=> 'Change background color for administrators\' posts.',
	'LOAD_CBGM_ADMINS_EXPLAIN'		=> 'When reading a topic, administrators\' background color posts is change.',
	'LOAD_CBGM_MODOS'			=> 'Change background color for moderators\' posts.',
	'LOAD_CBGM_MODOS_EXPLAIN'		=> 'When reading a topic, moderator\' background color posts is change, if moderators have moderators\'permissions in the current forum.',
));
//End : Colored background messages for admin and moderators

apart from that it works great :D
My mods in MODDB:
Add Homepage link in header - Change user activity post limit - Post number in viewtopic
If you need support click on the support tab there and post your question.
Do not PM me - chances of viewing my PMs are way thinner than viewing the support question in the customization DB...

Great mod!

My only problem is with the settings in the ACP. I can't seem to find or add them.

[I turned it off by using same default background color for moderators.]

You can set a different color in the css.
There is an explanation about how to do this in the DIY instructions, in the bottom of the install file.

I just tried this out on my test board

I am using Divine Black and the black posting backgrounds override the mod/admin colors completely
