Hello,

This mod allows users to select their default posting font and color. You will have to select this at registration and can update it whenever you want in profile.

First you must make two new single selection menu user profile fields. Options for them are below.

Profile field one:

Title: Default Post Color

Description: What color your posts show up as?

Options:

Black
Blue
Green
Red
Pink
Orange
Purple

Set Default: Yes, but no first blank option

Display Order: Doesnt Matter

Field Requiried: Yes, at registration and profile updating

Field Editable by User: Yes

Private Field: No

Field Searchable on Members List: No

Show on Members List: No


Profile field two:

Title: Default Post Font

Description: What do you want your default post font to be?

Options:

Arial
Arial Black
Arial Narrow
Book Antiqua
Century Gothic
Comic Sans MS
Courier New
Fixedsys
Franklin Gothic Medium
Garamond
Georgia
Impact
Lucida Console
Microsoft Sans Serif
Palatino Linotype
System
Tahoma
Times New Roman
Tribuchet MS
Verdana

Set Default: Yes, but no first blank option

Display Order: Doesnt Matter

Field Requiried: Yes, at registration and profile updating

Field Editable by User: Yes

Private Field: No

Field Searchable on Members List: No

Show on Members List: No

Now go to the user profile field manager, and jot down the two field numbers of the new fields listed on the right side of the two fields. Along with that, write down what number goes with what field. Please note this is not the display number, its the number next to it that says fieldX

Judging by the lack of a reply, I'm guessing that the answer is NO.

yes, as said before the font tag wasnt closed. the net effect would be a multitude of unclosed fonts per page, small code, big effect. please fix this mod

Also, il add that HTML colors could be used as well and color strings in the font tag
