XF 1.4 If member is in usergroup x - show visual cue to mods / admins *only*

    I've created a usergroup and manually added a select group of members into it.

    I'd like mods / admins to be able to visually identify this group by, for example, a change of avatar background colour or some text string under their username (please don't suggest a custom usergroup title - you cannot wrap conditionals around them!).

    However, I don't want anyone else to see this visual cue.

    How do I write a conditional that says ...

    <if person viewing is a moderator or administrator ... and ... person posting is in usergroup X>
    Do this different thing
    Do the usual thing

    Any help appreciated. (y)

    Shaun :D

    I do it like this:

    Which results in this:

    Note the small + to the left of the user title.

    I do that in three places:

    I've never played with template modifications before - I'll give it a try - many thanks. (y)

    You could just edit the template directly.

    I just prefer to attach mine to TMs.

    Just to check ... the is_admin and is_moderator refers to the viewer, right - the person to whom the change will be rendered?

    And the ... ismemberof, $user, 21 - refers to the poster who's avatar/message is being rendered?

    Yes, exactly.
