very nice idea

can you implant more fonts, or can do it the users herself

Well fonts wasn't one of the things that I had changable. Just the styling. If I did do fonts, it would only be as good as general serif or sans-serif. That's because I want it to work on all OS types regardless of default installed fonts.

Very nice! But looking at the demo, I only saw the option of changing the background color. Will the release allow you to use an image? Other than that, I look forward to this! thanks

No, just color. This is to add the feature that IGN boards have.

1. It's only supported by IE, so I don't even have a way to test it, (so no)
2. See the response to the quested asked by XBLFan.

I can't wait for this. :D

Instead of using permissions and a control panel, I think I'm going to integrate some of this code with the shop mod. :) A user buys an item, their username border or background color changes.

Which isn't supported in FireFox...
Sorry for my bad Engrish !

What I neglected to mention (but you would've seen it if you tried the demo) is that when changing your colors, there's a real-time preview (so unlike IGN, you don't have to actually change your colors to see what you'd look like with them).

This is great!
Is there a way so users do not choose white on white,black on black, yellow on white etc? You need to make sure the username is visible!

You can customize what colors the user can choose with this mod right (user can only change color to red or black, or user can only change background from none to blue)?

when you change anything it doesn't show what you changed in the preview
