    users > list user group > choose group > user name css:


    color: #000;
    background: #fff;
    text-shadow: 2px 2px 3px #000;
    Gives a drop shadow, pretty neat, much better than VB's system.. post your own.

    background-image:url("/images/backround11.gif"); font-weight: bold;  color:#FFFFFF
    allows you to use a backround image with a white bold font, works and looks good.

    Thank you so much for this! I thought I had to put in opening and closing brackets, and had no idea why my CSS wasn't working. Now I know better :D.

    I saw your OP and tried it for myself (awesome simple idea there, thanks :) ), this is what I came up with ...
    color: #000;
    background: ;
    text-shadow: 4px 2px 4px #505c62;

    This doesnt seem to work anymore...rather than a shadow it mades a box....in Firefox at least

    edit: removing the second line seems to make it work...

    This is cool, but I see the box in firefox as well if I add a background

    I really like this setup though compared to what I had on vb ;)

    padding-left: 17px;
    background: transparent url(your icon link) no-repeat center left;
    This is what I use to add cool icons before a username, you can see a demo thingy of what they look like Here :)
