    Official - Paid Topic Starter Ribbon for vBCloud

    This mod is for vBCloud only.

    In a topic, sometimes it gets confusing especially in a lengthy discussion who started the topic. You may often find yourself scrolling to the top or navigating to the first post to remember the username of the original poster. This vBCloud mod implements this useful feature.

    For self-hosted vBulletin 5 Connect, the mod can be found here.

    Screenshot:

    Demo:
    See the gold Topic Starter ribbon at the upper left corner of postbit here on this topic.

    Changes in the CSS not included in the package:
    1. Add fixed font family. If you are using other vB5 themes or a third-party theme that is not using Arial as the default font, the "Topic Starter" text may not fit in the ribbon. Thanks NumNum for catching this issue.

      In the ribbon CSS insert this under .vmtr-topic-starter #post:before and inside { and }.

      Code:
      	font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
    2. In some themes where links have underline on hover or by itself, the ribbon may inherit that style.

      To remove the text underline from the ribbon, insert this under .vmtr-topic-starter #post and inside { and }.

      Code:
      	text-decoration: none;
    3. Add gradient and shadow to the ribbon (Optional). If you want to add gradient and shadow to add some depth to the ribbon, you can make some adjustments to the CSS.

      In the same ribbon CSS mentioned in #1, replace this line:

      Code:
      	background-color: #fc7f00;
      with:

      Code:
      	background: #fc7f00;
      	background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #ffb76b 0%, #ffa73d 37%, #ff7c00 51%, #ff7f04 100%); /* FF3.6-15 */
      	background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #ffb76b 0%,#ffa73d 37%,#ff7c00 51%,#ff7f04 100%); /* Chrome10-25,Safari5.1-6 */
      	background: linear-gradient(to bottom, #ffb76b 0%,#ffa73d 37%,#ff7c00 51%,#ff7f04 100%); /* W3C, IE10+, FF16+, Chrome26+, Opera12+, Safari7+ */
      	filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='#ffb76b', endColorstr='#ff7f04',GradientType=0 ); /* IE6-9 */
      	box-shadow: 3px 3px 4px rgba(0,0,0,.3);
      If you are using a different ribbon color than the default gold, use this CSS Gradient Generator to generate the gradient CSS.

      I found a breaking change in the upcoming vB 5.3.4 version that breaks the CSS for this Topic Starter Ribbon mod.

      To fix this issue, change all instances of the code below in the custom CSS added for this mod:

      Code:
      .vmtr-topic-starter #post

      with:

      Code:
      .vmtr-topic-starter > .anchor

        Re-opened all orders to send the updated mod with the new ribbon style. It also includes the 5.3.4 fix. No need to re-install the mod. Only the CSS code was updated. Follow the instructions in "I: Add Topic Starter Ribbon CSS" section.

              I didn't see your purchase coming in for this mod. Did you encounter any issues? Let me know.

            Not at all. Easy to understand instructions. I’m gonna toy with the visuals a bit but I like this one a lot
