I did check all edits again. I didn't find the mistake but it's working now after I've redone the edits. Thank you very much. Sometimes it's better to check things again. :lol:

EDIT: Is it possible to keep the profile link in the name? As soon as the name style is edited the link is gone.

I just found this and hope it goes, but you have 2 XMLs. One in the main directory and one in the templates. Which one do I use?
Thanks

Both.
The main directory is file edits, and the ones in the templates directory is template edits.

I have a question about this mod. We just switched from InvisionFree and on that board, you could do stylings on the member names like add an icon, colors or smiley and even show a placeholder name (it worked with html)

What does this mod enables me to do exactly, just the color and fonts? Or will it works with BBcodes too?

I did a video of what to do when you get it installed. Maybe this will help others.

Video after installed.

Thanks

You can use the Jing site to do a video, or screen shot of what to do with this MOD and how to do it? All I see different is a red box around my nick.

Screen shot

Thanks
If you got the red border to appear, then you've done it right.
(In the admin panel, the permission is in the user overview, and for the user to change the color, it's in the main profile section (where you can change interests))
Re-read the part about for the user to change the color.

I don't recall it changing the size on any of the skins I tested it on. What skin did you install it on?

If you're talking about the characters in the name, I compared it to "verygreenmartian" in this post: http://www.smokey-services.eu/forum/vie ... 52&t=20231

And there's no difference as far as I can see.
(The user in the link I posted does NOT have the styling applied, I could tell from the html source)

If the name doesn't have a style applied, then my mod doesn't touch it, so I honestly don't see what you're talking about.

If you had a screenshot of before and after, that might help, but as it is now, I don't see any abnormal sizes.

In this version, you have to go where you edit a user. (Not the permissions section).
Next version (hopefully out soon) changes over to phpBB's permission system.

For now, it should be

ACP->Users and Groups->Manage Users->(select a user to manage)->And it should be right around "Last active:" if you did all the edits and purged your cache.
