    Hello @Russ or @Steve,
    I noticed I can add the "Admin Post" feature on my posts and for other admins, but I wanted to ask, can I do the same for Moderators but change theirs from red to green?

    If so, how would I go about doing this?

    You could with a template edit and a conditional. Are you going to be using the Admin Post indicator as well?

    Yes I plan on using both the Admin Post as well as the Mod Post.

    Okay

    So open up the message template

    Find:
    Code:
    Copy Source
    <xen:if is="{$message.is_admin}">
                                <strong class="newIndicator adminPostIndicator"><span></span><xen:if is="{$message.isNew}">@xb_newAdminPost_phrase<xen:else />@xb_adminPost_phrase</xen:if></strong>
                            </xen:if>
    Below it add:
    Code:
    Copy Source
    <xen:if is="{$message.is_moderator}">
                                <strong class="newIndicator modPostIndicator {xen:if $message.is_admin, 'adminPostIndicator',''}"><span></span><xen:if is="{$message.isNew}">New Mod Post<xen:else />Mod Post</xen:if></strong>
                            </xen:if>
    Change the bits in blue (the phrases) to whatever you want.

    Then add this to EXTRA.css
    Code:
    Copy Source
    .XenBase .modPostIndicator.adminPostIndicator {
            display: none;
    }
    .XenBase .newIndicator.modPostIndicator {
            color: #234a71;
            background: #d7edfc;
            border: 1px solid #a5cae4;
    }
    It will inherit most of the styling from the other indicators but you will need to adjust it from what I have there.

    Let me know how that works :)

    It worked after I removed the "display: none;".
    That code just kept hiding it.

    I wouldn't suggest showing both Admin/Mod in the same post. If the user is a Mod it will show, if the user is an Admin & Mod (you're most likely set as an Moderator too) it only shows the Admin indicator.
