I want to get as many opinions on this matter as possible, because it makes your board look much more colorful and attractive.
Should IPS implement a more extensive workaround into parsing usernames using the group prefix/suffic values? So names that appear in the shoutbox may appear elsewhere. If yes/no, should it be optional? So that users may turn it on and off at will, making it a more customizable feature?
You know I want it. The amount of edits required to do it currently is extensive and painful. Its theres an on/off button, then theres no harm :P
Are you talking about doing the group name formatting in more places? I got confused by this part:
So names that appear in the shoutbox may appear elsewhere.
surprised this is not already default
Ah, but 3.1 has been deliberately written to make it possible to do this - the updated hook system finally allows overwriting that terrible cludge that gets put in the DB for last poster values and all that.
Yeah, but it would be simpler if there was a simple setting for this...
@Michael, I am referring to formatting the display names across the board with their groups associated prefix and suffix, making the board more overall attractive.
Looking at a skin, and it's just constant one color (links)... gets kind of bleh after a while.
Actually there is already a setting to disable the name formatting globally but the problem is that the name formatting is only applied in a few areas and no one uses it :P
It can't be that hard with all the new settings being added / re-routed.. :(
