Post Background Color - Version 1.03b

Hack: Post Background Color
Version: v1.03b
Author: MarcoH64

Description
Create Color Schemes, set specific colors for different styles to match the styles colors the best. Give usergroups permissions to attach
a color scheme as background to a post. Great to allow Admins/Moderators to highlight important posts in a thread for example.

Features
- Create Color Schemes
- Override the default color for a Color Scheme for each Style if needed.
- User Usergroup permissions to allow/deny the use of background colors
- On posting/editing, optionally choose a background color
- Choose (vB Options) if you want the background color to be applied to the messagetext, the postbit info, or both.
- Create background images or gradients (thanks to applehat for the idea )

Changelog:
17-7-2006 v1.03b
- Fixed uninstall code. Space was missing in the DELETE FROMdatastore.
(if you have currently installed 1.03, then please do an overwrite install with version 1.03b prior to uninstallation. If you are already uninstalling with 1.03 and run into a SQL-error, see post http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1032141&postcount=33 to fix an aborted uninstall)
7-12-2005 v1.03
- Increased size of colorcode in tables to support larger values so we can also use images and gradients
- Changed the postbit from background-color to background style attribute to support the above.
7-12-2005 v1.02
- Removed &nbsp from dropdown menu
- Fixed bug where colorscheme could not be reset to 'None' once a color was set.
5-12-2005 v1.01
- Fixed missing new column for post table in install routines.
5-12-2005 v1.00
- Initial Release

Sorry no time to look into this anymore. It is probably a left over from an attampt to show the colors in the dropdown (which didn't work, somehow the colors didn't show).

Will remove this when i come back.

BUG: If you try and turn it back to NONE, it will not let you.

A Temp. Fix would be to add your alt2 (or alt 1) color as a selection called Default or something to that extent.
