making forum roles bigger/better

    Sorry, I am sure this has been answered but I cannot find an answer to it through google etc.

    I want to give my forum roles a bit of a better look, like a little box around them that has a different fill color.

    I cant really find a great example, but when I look at rc groups, in the bottom corner it says their status, like admin/moderator etc.

    anyways, I am pretty new to wordpress but I have a child theme and custom style.css

    Thank You,
    JB

    try adding something like this to your child theme css, this will give you a light grey box around the role title, but there does not seem to be a selector to differentiate roles and thus use different color per role

    div.bbp-author-role {
    	background-color: #eee;
    }

    otherwise, you can use your browsers web inspector etc to examine any element and use that as starting point to alter appearance of bbpress

    Although, would you or anyone else, know how to change the shading of the box for different forum roles?

    you would need to edit bbpress template files to add a unique css class to each bbpress role as well as add custom css, see this article for details –

    I was more hoping to just add some ready made code that someone on another website would not mind handing out, but thank you.
