    Ok jeongwee it is not tested on 2.1 yet . It says only 2.0.18.8 ...

    @R_J here are two icons I made for this plugin :)

    Well, it will work out of the box
    1. if you are using no outdated browser
    2. and using unmodified theme of 2.0.18

    If you look at the css you'll see that the path is somewhat hardcoded and so you might have to modify it.

    Post the sourcecode of a discussion beginning from span=Gender up to the username and I'll try to tell you the css you will have to use

    @vrijvlinder: I'll take the right one!

    i use Chrome... i checked html theres no span=Gender ,only i saw is span=Gender_m and span=Gender_u

  • R_JR_J Cheerleader & Troubleshooter Munich Moderator

    The plugin works by enclosing the user name as close as possible with a <span="Gender_X">...code for user name...</span> where "X" is m,f or whatever is in the "User" table in column "Gender". So if you have Gender_u you obviously have to create a line in showgender.css for Gender_u.

    I have taken a look at your site 15min.cc and found <a class="Username" ... >. If you are using the same on your testsystem, try span.Gender_m a.Username:after {content:' \2642'}

    Figure out what "u" means and add span.Gender_u a.Username:after {content:' whatever'} to your CSS.

  • Figure out what "u" means.

    Gender unspecified - you could have an icon that says "Wouldn't you like to know?"

    I'd suggest span.Gender_m a.Username:after {content:' 1f47d'} (look here)

    Unicode is fun :-)

    btw: you could in fact use it exactly this way span.Gender_m a.Username:after {content:' Wouldn't you like to know?'}

    I have an idea for your next plugin.

    Make it so discussions posted by anybody over 30 years of age are not visible to anybody under 20 years of age, since they don't listen anyway.

    @jeongwee

        why are you using version 2.1b1?  when version 2.1b2 is available.
    
        Also when people ask what version are you using you could say 2.1b 
        and then they could say which version of 2.1b  -  2.1b1 or 2.1b2
    
        you meaning not you but you as in one.

    I think :after is advanced CSS stuff so when you learn about CSS, pseudo elements are nothing you need to know on the first run
