User Group Colors in Forum


If you use the default CSS (CP -> Customize design -> Style sheet (CSS)), then Administrators are red, Moderators are blue, Checked are green and this is set by the following lines:

Code
/* User Group Marks */
a.groupModer:link,a.groupModer:visited,a.groupModer:hover {color:blue;}
a.groupAdmin:link,a.groupAdmin:visited,a.groupAdmin:hover {color:red;}
a.groupVerify:link,a.groupVerify:visited,a.groupVerify:hover {color:green;}
/* ---------------- */


The Users group is not indicated here and its color is assigned by the first lines of the CSS file, it's the color of the ordinary links on a website. If you want to use your custom color for Users, then add a line for groupUser.

Code
a.groupUser:link,a.groupUser:visited,a.groupUser:hover {color:#A8C9E2;}


A color may be assigned both by an English name and an RGB hex code.

Each newly created group has the designation groupOther1, groupOther2 and so on up to groupOther8, as you can add 8 custom groups.

Code
a.groupOther1:link,a.groupOther1:visited,a.groupOther1:hover {color:Yellow;}
a.groupOther2:link,a.groupOther2:visited,a.groupOther2:hover {color:DarkCyan;}


A group number in this case means the order of adding, and not a group ID.
groupOther1 is the 1st group you create. E.g. uCoz has Users, Administrators, Moderators and Checked as the default groups. If you create a group other than the default groups then this group will be groupOther1.
If you create a second group other than default ones then this group will be groupOther2




Other Color Classes


On the Forum main page:


1. Greetings to our new member - class="lastUserLink" (if it is not assigned, then it has the color of an ordinary link)
2. Happy Birthday! - class="userBirthdayLink" (similarly)
3. Forum moderator - class="forumModer" (similarly)
4. Thread author - class="lastPostUserLink" (similarly)

The same classes as in p. 3 & 4 apply inside the Forum, on pages with sections and forum boards.

On the page with posts:


1. Forum moderator – class="forumModer"
2. User nickname - class="postUser"
3. Group name - class="postUserGroup" - Attention! It’s not a link, but a plain text and the class applies to both words – e.g., group: Moderators.

On the website:


On the website group names are also determined by the classes groupModer, groupAdmin, groupUser etc.

When changing a group color, check whether the page template has the address of the file where you make changes.

The following line must be in the template:

Code
<link type="text/css" rel="StyleSheet" href="http://YOUR_SITE_ADDRESS/_st/my.css" />




Username Colors in Posts


How to display the colors, set for certain groups, in thread posts? Go to Customize Design -> Forum -> Appearance of entries, find this:

Code
<tr><td width="23%" class="postTdTop" align="center"><a class="postUser" href="javascript://" onClick="emoticon('[b]$USERNAME$[/b],');return false;">$USERNAME$</a></td>


and change it for this:

Code
<tr><td width="23%" class="postTdTop" align="center"><a class="postUser$GROUP_ID$" href="javascript://" onClick="emoticon('[b]$USERNAME$[/b],');return false;"><span class="forum_nik$UID$">$USERNAME$</span></a></td>


Save the template, go to Style sheet (CSS), and add the following lines there:

Quote
a.postUser1 {color:#000000;} – color of group 1
a.postUser2 {color:#00FF00;} - color of group 2
a.postUser3 {color:#0000FF;} - color of group 3
a.postUser4 {color:#FF0000;} - color of group 4


and so on for each group (if you have more than four groups).

Note: Do not put the text in blue (color of group n)!


Then you can also assign a certain username color to a definite user, just add the following to the CSS:

Quote
.forum_nik1 {color:#F6F6F6;} – username color of the user with ID=1
.forum_nik6 {color:#F7F7F7;} - username color of the user with ID=6
.forum_nik7 {color:#F9F9F9;} - username color of the user with ID=7
.forum_nik4 {color:#A6A6A6;} - username color of the user with ID=4


Thus you can assign colors to each group and at the same time assign personal username colors to certain users.

HOW TO CHANGE A USER'S GROUP


1. Go to your website Control Panel -> Users.
2. Find the necessary user.
3. Select a new group for the user on the drop-down list.

Note: after the transfer the user must re-log in (log out and log in again).



The second variant is easier.


You can move any user to another group (except Administrators and Moderators) without entering the Control Panel. Log in to the website as the administrator and go to the profile of the user you want to move to another group. There is a drop-down list of groups, select the necessary group and click OK.



A user can belong to one group only. Groups are meant for managing of not only a forum, but a website as well. That is why we do not plan to add such option as belonging to several groups.


An administrator can allow a user to select a group when registering. To do this go to Control Panel -> Users -> User groups -> Edit group properties or permissions and enable the option Allow to select this group during registration. For the Users group this option is enabled by default and cannot be changed. Think twice before enabling it for other groups!

The default groups Administrators and Moderators are special groups. Some of their permissions cannot be changed, they are assigned by the system. For example, only Moderators can be assigned to moderate a forum board; only Administrators can see administrators' IPs and move users between groups through their profiles.

A group can be changed for Administrators or Moderators only via Control Panel.

Question: I'm using ucoz as a homepage for a guild I run in an online game. I have a roster of people in my guild, and when they sign up on the website, I assign them the special usergroup called "Guild Member".

Is there anyway I can display usergroup "Guild Member" as a seperate page in my Site Menu so that when you click on it, it displays each and every user?

Answer: Use Informers feature.

Question: I got a problem: when I create a new user group for my page I set the options like for admin, and when I log in I see
Your user group is prohibited from doing this action.
Address all your questions to site administrator.
How to fix it??
Answer: Set your user group permissions: CP -> Users -> User groups -> The group you made -> Edit. [Armaros]
Answer: Check permissions not only in User Groups section but also in the settings of your pages (CP -> Page Editor -> Pages Management). [Sunny]

Question: Will those codes for group colors work in the informer?
Answer: No. I doubt that's actually possible & if it is, than there is needed knowledge of informers.
Answer: There is the code $CLASS$ in informer template, so use it to color your users! [Kron]

Question: This code is not working in my site. I have 5 Groups and the Group No.5 is named VIP Members so I do like this:
Quote
a.groupOther5:link,a.groupOther5:visited,a.groupOther5:hover {color:red;}
Is there anything wrong about it???
Answer: If your VIP group is your own created & it got ID 5, it will be this code:
Code
a.groupOther1:link,a.groupOther1:visited,a.groupOther1:hover {color:Yellow;}

It's the first group of the created ones.

Question: I just wanna ask if I can make another moderator group other from the default moderator group. - my purpose is that, I want another group of mods in a different Forum section
Answer: Sure you can do. Just create a group called Super Moderators or anything you want. Then give them Permissions and you're ok.

Is there anyway in which the change the default user group to something other than 'User' upon registration, or to make things easier is there anyway to activate a setting in which an admin would have to verify ones account.

The reason being theres a few links contained on my site which contain sensitive information which I would like verified guild member only to be able to view.

Is this possible in anyway, or would I have to go through the painstaking process of creating a new group and moving all verified members too it?

You could rename "checked" to in this case "guidies"[CP > Users > User groups] and set the requirements(by clicking "auto Transfer" by users) Then give these "guidies" more rights than users, by editing permissions. If you want some classified info only for "guildies" then set all that information in:

Code
<?if($GROUP_ID$=2)?> .::  ONLY GUILD MEMBERS CAN READ THIS! ::. <?else?> Hello guests! <?endif?>

"Group ID = 2" is the number for checked members..."guildies", with this you can display info only for them, everything after <?else?> is for other groups(guests, members) You can set it up for any group you wish.

a.groupSuperModerator:link,a.groupSuperModer:visited,a.groupSuperModerator:hover {color:yellow;}

Its my problem I added new groups SuperModerator and I cant change color?
Answer:
Quote (Sunny)
Each new group has the designation groupOther(1-10), as you may add 10 groups. Group number in this case means addition order.
It must be groupOther1, and not groupSuperModerator.

Metalstorm, as for the problem, code is: $GROUP_ICON$ and group icon will only appear if
you will set it via CP -> Users -> User groups -> Edit -> Group icon -> Add url.
