    Hello Everyone..

    Now I'm asking for a small help. How to add thread starter image like this?


    Is this is a addon or template modification?

    I'm sure that is a template modification. I gave it a try and it's not exactly how you have it but near enough. It's probably not the correct way of doing this but it seems to work for me.

    Go into you message_user_info template find

    <span class="helper"></span>
    add the following so it looks like so

    <xen:if is="{$post.user_id} == {$thread.user_id} "><span class="helper"></span></xen:if>
    Then go into your EXTRA.CSS template and paste the following

    .messageUserInfo .helper  {
      display: block;
      position: absolute;
      top: -4px;
      left: -4px;
      background: url("@imagePath/xenforo/icons/starter.png") no-repeat  transparent;
      height: 56px;
      width: 56px;
    And finally, upload the image in the attachment to your /icons folder.

    The output of all that is as follows.

    Just noticed it sets the ribbon in the quickreply messageuserinfo. if you don't want that to display there (i personally wouldn't) add the following to extra.css

    .quickReply .messageUserInfo .helper {display:none;}

    What's your opinion? Is that color suits my site? If you don't mind, can you make it THIS RED or THIS GREEN ?
