    the position of date/time of the posting is per default at the end of each posting. Our users don't like this and would prefer to have at the top of the posting instead. Is there an option?

    Thank you in advance!

    Kind regards,

    I solved this way...

    Add this in Extra.css

    .messageUserInfo abbr,
    .messageUserInfo span.DateTime {
        position: relative;
        padding: 5px 10px 5px 10px;
        line-height: 16px;
        font-size: 10.5px;
    .messageUserBlock .arrow span {
        border-left-color:#d7edfc !important;
    And in template mesage_user_info
    Find this:
    <xen:hook name="message_user_info_avatar" params="{xen:array 'user={$user}', 'isQuickReply={$isQuickReply}'}">
    After that insert:
    <xen:datetime time="$post.post_date" />
    Focker and vFranky like this.

    Do I have to edit the Extra.css directly? Or is there a way to do it within XenForo?

    @XenForo: Would be fine to have a toggle inside XenForo configuration for this option.

    Type extra in admin search, select extra.css, copy/paste code there, save
