Make posts in a topic by topic starter recognizable

When I read the first post on a very long topic, I find myself losing the context of all the answers when I can’t remember who the original poster was.

Is it an idea to mark the posts of the original poster somehow in a topic?

P.S.: wasn’t sure if this has been discussed before. Searching for original poster or topic starter didn’t get me any results.

Yeah, there is CSS for the OP user in the rendered page, if you view source. We added this quite a while ago. We don’t choose to style it out of box because I don’t think highlighting the OP is that important in a larger conversation, and might actually have a few negative repercussions about “ownership”.


Well, that’s exactly what I’m looking for. What is the class used for this?

The class to style is topic-owner.

If you want to mark all but the first post use: .topic-owner:not(:first-child)
