For the forums I’ve been setting up, the developers of the product are going to be active participants in topics; as such, I’d like to make an easy-to-notice callout next to the Topic title (in the topic table view, not necessarily in the thread itself) to show the company icon in order to help other users identify when anyone from within the developer group has contributed to a thread. Blizzard does this on their forums and I think it’s awesome!
Example of Blizzard forums (1st post):
I think I’m familiar enough with CSS to understand how to put the icon before the text, however I’m not sure how to set it up where the CSS “knows” that a user in the “developer” group has posted in a topic to trigger the icon to show. Has anyone else done something like this or have some leads on how I can do it?
Mock-up of what I’d like to show (2nd post):
Thanks so much for any help/tips!
