Avatar Flair Image for Staff, Moderators, Admin

(Robert) #1

I did use the search option

After setting up a couple flair images

and setting as primary


I liked what I saw and made one for the Staff,

only to find out I could not apply it, no setting for that,

Is it ruled out for sure or perhaps in the plans to add?

Didn’t see any theme components related to mods, admin or staff either.

Thanks in advance.


Avatar Flairs can only be added to custom groups - it does not currently work with preset groups.

You would need to add your staff into a custom group and add it there.

@Full30 You could also however use a theme component such as below

Thank you, would there be any harm in creating a custom staff group and then deleting the old one, function wise?

I imagine I could hide the original from public view so its not an obvious duplicate but if theres no harm in removing…

I don’t actually understand the staff group as it appears identical to admin

But don’t know

Thanks again!


Staff contains a list of all admin and moderators.

What I did was set up a seperate group to that called Team.

When added to team they are automatically promoted to TL4 and given the flair.

Also means they do not have to have access to the moderation or administration to have it.

Sounds good, can give people an extra feeling of appreciation and not have them behind the wheel,

I did bookmark that theme earlier, with that I can safely rename trust levels correct?

I would like trust level names to reflect board content, and maybe add a little flair :smile:

Hmm this is a decent idea @neil, should we make avatar flair work with built in trust groups?

Yes I think we should do it, but I haven’t gotten around to doing it.
