basically you didn't see a difference....Did not know, there is new ones. What's the diff?
Can you manage the forum on the new ones? on old ones, I can only manage member and staff wall but not the new forum.basically you didn't see a difference....
people who created new groups/guilds within stratics after a certain date stopped getting the banners (even though we would set up all the settings for it). Something didn't update... @Nexus did tell me they are talking to the developer of the plugin to get it working again. For the most part, that is one of the strongest features of the groups/guild feature here on stratics... to show your affiliation to that particular group on the boards (and by nature, advertise the group as well).
I do remember, there was an easier way to changes ribbon, but can't find it now.@Kirthag ..... I know when I created my guild there was no red +... I had to look and look for where to turn on that banner and quite often it appears it isn't showing but after I refresh the page it shows up. Which I find rather odd but it does. Anyway... I think it's in your user settings somewhere if I recall. Not on the page for your guild.
Look for post 40 in this thread DIscussion About Banners Pulled Out Of Holy Fist Thread
If you have already created the guild medal on your guild page, to activate it hover over the "guilds" button in the picture below, then press the "groups you're joined" button.

Then press the red plus sign and select the top option that says "choose ribbon" like the picture below. Your medal will be activated.

That is all CSS
@MalagAste - what "red+" are you talking about? Is that another guild/group you are a member of?
@FrejaSP - yes, I set that up in my guild... but it is not displaying under my avatar...
This is what I'm talking about. (Thanks @Taylor for being the example)
The Green Alumni Banner is what is set up in the admin section of Xenforo for a specific user group, like moderators, supporters and such.
The Blue Alumni Banner is a Stratics Guild banner which links back to the Rusty Dagger (an Alum only group). @Ron Bron set up the group when it was decided that the Rusty Dagger boards were obsolete, but still should have a place for Alum to gather and banter. That blue banner is a "Stratics Guild/Group" banner attached to a group that was created not too long ago.
So here is my question..
1 - Taylor, how did you get that to display?
2 - @Nexus howcome I cannot get mine to display?
3 - What special thing did Ron Bron do to that particular group that allows the display on the banner on Taylor, but not on me - for I look high, low and under and I CANNOT find the setting for this in anything I have access to. Or is it because I'm a member of BOTH groups, so they cancel out?
3a - a side note, perhaps that banner should be "Rusty Dagger" and not "Alumni"?? Maybe change the color to a more rust one?
Further, could that be the reason MalagAste's "red+" appears and disappears as stated?
Is it a combination of permissions/groups that is (once again) fubar?
I'm aware; I created this version of the forums. When I first set up the banners, we were deliberate with the colors and consistency. I can only find an older version below--the most recent was in the Help pages, which were later hidden or deleted.and last note for @Taylor
This is the basic banner/ribbon coloring that is native to the
pluginsoftware as this stuff is native and no longer driven by a plugin.
several of the banners/ribbons are customized via CSS then applied to groups in the ACP
Looks like someone is tweaking them.
