How to add "reputation" under userpics?

  • Oct. 24th, 2007 at 1:04 PM
So I chat a lot on vBulletin type of forums, and what i really like there is "reputation" which users can give to each other. At the bottom one can see how this reputation accumulates, and can also determine who is "popular".

I don't want to make this "reputation" available for all users in my community to give. But as a moderator, I wish I could give "points" to the users, which would accumulate and display somehow under their userpic.

My community is a paid account. I don't know much about programming, I do know HTML though, but I don't believe HTML would be able to do it. I would need "S2" or "java" or "php"... anybody? Help? PLEASE?

I have "Expressive Seasonal": buonappetito

ok, fair enough.
what about some additional line under the userpic, which i could edit myself? would it be possible to add an additional information, or replace the lj user tag with a custom-made something (maybe an lj user icon, repeat it several times...)

They do something a little like this in component_help, although I'm not sure how. You'd have to re-compile the layout code each time you want to change a user's "rating". Obviously, the community account would have to be Paid or Permanent.
You can change the ljuser images through CSS, but it would be an equal pain to do that for individual users.

i know how to change lj user little icon. /learnt in this community, by the way/. would there be a way to set up lj user icons specific per user? because the code they suggested was either for "user", or "community", or else. but would it be possible to change a lj user icon for different users?

right now i have a little "strawberry"
i could set up a layer, probably, where users are combined in groups, and if you are in that group, your icon is different... would be nice. so i don't have to re-write anything every time. i would have to add user names to different groups every time.

only i have no idea how to do that. any ideas?

i will... do anything for your help :))

I don't know where you got that code to change the lj icon, but it doesn't work in Firefox or Internet Explorer 7. Although, I think I can work up something to selectively replace ljuser icons with a theme layer.
