Looks nice!

Is there a way to make users select their own ranks?
That would make the plugin even more useful to me :-).

No, this product, as it stands, allows you as an admin to define the HTML/CSS for ranks and then apply them to users. The way I see it, such a rank is earned though contributions to the site, rather than simply chosen by users.

For example, one of our global moderators puts in a great deal of time helping me beta test mods on our dev site, and so I gave her a small icon to denote her role as a beta tester. It was something I felt she deserved

However, I realize not everyone will have the same use for any particular mod, and so when I get time (currently working on a bear of a mod), I will see if I can do something useful with your suggestion.

Downloaded and installed with thanks...

Immediately noticed there is no CSS code as shown in the pic, to use as a template for those of us who aren't experienced as coders?

Is it supposed to be there?

Regards,
Doug

Hey Doug,

You have to add your own CSS when you define your ranks badges. The CSS isn't really necessary unless you are going to define more than one badge that uses the same CSS...this lets you be more efficient.

The screenshot just shows an example of CSS classes being defined.

Ok, tried it and still nothing appears using vBullletin 4.1.3PL8 as a rank for the user named Badger. (see attached)

Most likely mod is not compatible with 4.1 series... just a guess?

Regards,
Doug

Mark...

In order to save my old brain a lot of time and possible mistakes, could you copy the text versions of the code you show in your graphic pic of your mod into a post here?

Thanks .. appreciate it..

Regards,
Doug

The CSS you see in the screenshot is just what I used for the screenshots. It is not meant to be a part of the product itself. I just used it so the screenshots would be pretty. It is nearly identical to the HTML/CSS badges I designed for the site I help admin, and I would rather not make them available to the public, as I want them to be somewhat unique to that site.

It is up to you to design your own badges to fit your site...the same knowledge required to use vBulletin's intrinsic "Ranks Manager" is also required for this product. This product just allows you to assign such badges to individual users without having to create usergroups for those users.

Thank you Stratis ..

This makes the mod very useful to non coders... appreciate it..

How would I make the background a nice shade of blue instead of red?

Regards,
Doug

Edit: As soon as more then 1 username is added to the list, the rank stops showing up in forums. If you just use a single username, it works for that user. (see attached)

Where you see this symbol # in front, like this #D42121 are all colors, change as you like.

*Confirmed that when include a second user for me it shows the second user, assume that if I put 3 user it will show the third only.

*And something else, is there a way to have an option to hide for visitors or to show which usergroup we want.

Thanks

EDIT: In profile text is under, maybe this is my fault?

I get neither issue...I can assign as many users the same badge as I wish and they look the same in postbits as in profiles.

Yes, it only shows one user, I think whomever is the username in the last position. Of course, that's why it works for only 1 user, because they're in the last position.

Doug
