XF 1.2 User Profile field conditionals in CSS?

    Okay guys, basically on my previous vBulletin forum I implemented two things..

    1. Team rep.
    2. User background

    What I did was use profile fields for this, for the user background I just made them post the link. Then in the header I'd include..

    background-image: <if userprofile field>[user profile field]</else> default image</if>

    For the team rep I'd like to get their favorite teams background into the postbit.


    So where the username is there, I'd like to get their favorite teams background in that grey box. So I'm thinking I can add an if conditional to the message.user.info.css template or something? Just not sure how to go about it..

    Cheers guys.

    Great, cheers mate.

    How about for a user background?

    Been adding this to the header with no luck...

    <xen:if is="{$user.customFields.website_background}">
    background-image: url('{$user.customFields.website_background}') !important;
    background-repeat:repeat !important;
    background-attachment: fixed !important;

    Is there no headerinclude in this? Doesn't seem to work on CSS either..

    $user isn't available in CSS or the header template. Try $visitor.

    visitor seems to works.

    Just for future reference, what's the difference?

    It depends on the context. Visitor usually implies the visitor to the page and user usually implies a static user. Templates only have access to variables provided to them, meaning some variables aren't accessible everywhere.

    Fair enough, I'm also kind of confused with template conditionals for usergroups. I'm trying to color a background a different color if they're part of a certain usergroup.

    <div class="userText" style="background-color: <xen:if is="{xen:helper ismemberof, $visitor, 38}">#C90; <xen:else />#EDEDED;</xen:if> text-shadow:1px 1px #FFF; text-align:center; border-bottom: 1px solid #d8d8d8; width:112px; padding:5px;">

    It just seems to color everyone the first color though. If my conditional right? It's in the message_user_info template.

    Are you a member if usergroup #38? Change that to $user and it should be the poster's info being checked.
