give sticky topics another background color!
« on: September 27, 2005, 03:59:47 AM »
Hi,

I wonder if you could change the color of the sticky topics in all the forums. Other forums use a slightly different style for those or use a divider to make clear that those are sticky ones.

Helps to avoid confusion :)

i've been thinking that would be a very nice feature myself -
im hoping its part of the upgraded forum version that i will be upgrading this week.
if not, we'll try to add it, since it's definitely something that would be useful.

Can't find any option in the latest beta, but see

http://www.simplemac...ex.php?topic=17230.0

for how to separate the sticky topics from the rest (not sure which SMF version this applies to though)
