Username color by group

Hi all,

I am a new user of XenForo,
I search to define a color on each group, to print usernames in color on my entiere site. Like phpbb does. (Admin = red, moderator = ping, vip = green ...)

I applied the CSS clauses on group configuration, and i set correctly the priority, but the color is visible only on "Recent status updates", and "staff online" blocks.

Anyone know how to applie it on entiere forum ? (threads, memberlist, online users, ...)

Thanks for your help ;)

This doesn't color-code the names of the people who are in those groups. I was looking for a way that everyone in that group would have their names color-coded, and not necessarily the actual group name itself. Any ideas? I've seen this down on this site:


So I know it can be done somehow...

Please read the manual page, it explains where the styling is present.

All other areas won't have the styling applied.

Ok then, I was sent to this area concerning my wanting to have the staff groups color-coded like on 'this' site:

Obviously I was brought here in error because I'm looking to have all members inside of each staff group color-coded 'like the site above' and with each group to have a different color-code. Any help on this? Thanks in advance ;-)

Thanks, but it says nothing about my being able to just change the colors of the people in the staff groups I've created. It's clear as day on this guys site (http://shadowops.org/forum/index.php?XenStaff/ ) , but seems nobody knows how he's doing it.

It's necessary to me because that will define who our 'clan members' are over other site members ;-( I need to figure this one out badly...

Ok, I think I'm on to something here. I've found where I can change the color of the whole Staff heading. I went to STYLES / CUSTOMIZED COMPONENTS then selected 'XenStaff_index.css' which shows me this:

.staffHeading {
font-size: 12pt;
font-family:'Trebuchet MS',Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
line-height: 1.0
margin: 0px;
margin-top: 20px;
margin-left: 10px;
padding: 0px;

So what I think I need NOW, is some coding which will allow me to make separate colors for each of the 8 staff groups I have..Someone PLZ assist me on this venture? We're almost there, or "closer" atleast ;-)

Update: I've gone over and over this with no outcome. I know it's right there in front but I must be doing something wrong maybe. Can someone plz help me get this to work? I really need to proceed because there is now 'deadline' of a few days...
