Nice idea.

I also have idea which is a bit similar, but also different. For official posts by moderators (and admins, of course), that posts look differently, a bit like presented here.

We would define what elements to be changed and how (e.g. red text in post, red post header), but only when moderators want to make official statement, and leaving their other normal post same.

There would be option to make post "official communication". It would be somewhere in additional options, within quick editor and advanced.

Would you be interested in something like this?

This would help make users aware that some communication is official. Now moderators (at least on my site) usually change color of text by BBcode, but that is something that users also sometimes use. With changing more elements, it would be distinct official communication from moderators.

Yes, that's an idea I've heard before and one that I could see being useful too. I will give this some thought.

Thank you. At the moment I can't like your post, but it doesn't mean I don't appreciate your effort.

Hi Mark, in optional, is it possible to use a custom color for usergroup, not the HTML markup of the user name (like Post Body CSS For Specified Users)
Thanks

Unfortunately, if a custom style makes changes to the postbit template significant enough to make recognition of certain elements by this product impossible, I can't really provide support in the published product.

The best I can do is offer to come to your site, where you have provided to me the login credentials to an admin account by PM, and see if I can customize the installation of this product for your site.

Love it. Have one question - is it possible to have a "glow" option? On my site users use both light and dark styles. The words of users with dark username coloring show just fine in the light style, but not so much in the dark style. Likewise those with light username coloring show fine on dark styles, but not with light styles. Just looking for a way to have everybody's words be able to be read.

I would recommend turning off "Post Content" in the product settings...this way that won't be affected. Would that work?

Works for posts, not so much for usernames/user titles/user info. Thanks
