Help for a styling question


Well-known member
Hello, I've noticed this new good style at

and I would like to implement the way the single posts look.

Now my forum look like this

but I would like it to look like this one

I don't know if it's difficult or not or how to do it since I'm not a coder and I'm not proficient in CSS, so I'm here to ask if anyone can help me doing that. I've asked the coder the permission to post the request here...

John designed that style. It's for sale at If you don't want to purchase it, you'll need to ask him if you can use the postbit, and for the code.

I know. I've told him that I don't need the entire style but I would like to implement this part on my site. He replied about a tutorial he's working on about this issue some time ago...

Yeah I just read there that he said he could probably write a tutorial. You'll need to wait for that.
You should probably ask about it at his site,

Sorry Andrea, I haven't forgotten you, just been really busy lately. I'll try and get this posted at xenfans this weekend :)

Andrea, I have looked closely at the differences. The 3rd and 4th images in your original post appear to be the identical style as the 1st and 2nd images.

Try this....

Find two members who's title is "New Member". Next, modify the information displayed on the avatar card which appears in threads. For example, your card on the official XF site only shows "AndreaMarucci, Active Member". Match the information on your site to only show Name, Title and Member Since, just like what appears in images #3/4 in your original post. ACP > Appearance > Style Properties > Message Elements > Settings.

At this point I believe you will have exactly what you want unless you also desire a color match. The colors can easily be changed in ACP > Appearance > Style Properties > Message Layout > Avatar Holder (pretty sure that's the one you want).
