  1. The world's biggest boy band, BTS scripted history at the Billboard Music Awards 2019 last night, by becoming the first ever K-Pop group to win the Top Group award. 190502 ð BTS just wins Top Duo/Group at 2019 Billboard Music Awards!! ð­ð­ GUUUUUYYS @BTS_twt BIG CONGRATULATIONS!! #TopSocialArtistBTS #BTSistheTopGrouppic.twitter.com/NnUPW1oAj5 — BTS National (@BTS_National) May 2, 2019 They also won the Top Social Artist award for the third year in a row, thanks to their unbelievably powerful and devoted fan base called the ARMY. It goes without saying that the fans completely lost it, not only in South Korea but all over the world, as this was a very important moment for them. A Korean group, making Korean music, competing and winning against noted international artists, is nothing short of incredible, and BTS' fans are on cloud nine and beaming with pride. “I'd say after today's BBMAs win 'Team work makes the Dream work', is the right phrase suitable for BTS because they have come a long way by their sheer hard work and talent,” said Twinkle Choudhary, one of the administrators of BTSindiaofficial. BTS, who were nominated for the first time ever in this category, won the Top Group award by beating out Dan + Shay, Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5 and Panic! At The Disco. © Getty Images The 7 members consisting of RM (leader), Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook walked up to the stage to collect the award amid the deafening cheers from their fans present there. “Thank you, ARMY. Still can't believe we're here on this stage with so many great artists, oh my God. ARMY, this is only possible because of the little things we shared together. The BTS and ARMY power, right? And we're still the same boys from six years ago. We still have the same dreams. We still have the same feelings; we still have the same thoughts. So let's keep dreaming the best dreams together. Thank you. I love you all," RM said in his acceptance speech. BTS also performed their latest single 'Boy With Luv' featuring Halsey at the BBMAs and it was incredible to see the sight of an American pop singer singing and dancing along with a K-Pop band on the prestigious stage. BTS & Halsey took the #BBMAs stage for a performance of "Boy With Luv" #BillboardNews pic.twitter.com/zvPpvvWCyv — billboard (@billboard) May 2, 2019 “I think a lot of people are really curious about the collaboration because obviously, the boys are from Korea and I'm from the States, but I think that we really show that despite what seems like a language barrier at first is really just kind of like unimportant when it comes down to a bunch of young people who really love music and who just love hanging out, and it really shows through," Halsey said at before the awards on the red carpet. © Getty Images BTS, looking dapper in Alexander McQueen, created a stir the second they landed at the awards and walked the red carpet, as besides fans, many celebrities began clamouring to take a selfie or just catch a glimpse of the boys. © Getty Images Now THAT's a photo.#UmusicBBMAs #Drake #BTS pic.twitter.com/KKaX7FEl7g — Universal Music CA (@umusic) May 2, 2019 Can they like...

THE OTHER GIRLS CAN'T EEM SPELL GLOBAL IMPACT pic.twitter.com/UkSugkhKx3 — anna with luv (@TRlVlAMONOS) May 1, 2019 The Jonas Brothers, who were making their first red carpet appearance as a band in 10 years, could barely contain their excitement at the prospect of meeting BTS and said their “main goal was to meet BTS.” ð¹ Jonas Brothers live stream on instagram moments ago! #BBMAs pic.twitter.com/KbWtdWHX0y — Jonas Brothers News (@jbrosnews) May 1, 2019 Joe Jonas actually managed a fist bump with V during a performance, to which a very disappointed Nick Jonas responded by posting a clip of the moment to Instagram story saying, “When your brother gets a fist bump during your performance from BTS but you don't.” joe jonas interacted with bts and got married,,, maybe today's joe jonas is living his best life pic.twitter.com/tuCG5wNu15 — jo (@kookooT__T) May 2, 2019
  2. Let's just admit it, we all live in a world ruled by Shah Rukh Khan. So when he says, “I feel like I'm the king of the world” we should just accept that statement without question. Even though he has not delivered a hit in the past couple of years his stardom and, most importantly, fandom remains still unmatched compared to other Bollywood stars. Twitter user Ali Gul Khan took to his account and uploaded a video of five Nigerian boys singing 'Bholi Si Surat' from King Khan's musical hit 'Dil To Pagal Hai' and it is breaking the internet already, proving King Khan is loved by people overseas as much as in India. The clip is all you need to make your weekend all the more cheerful. I'm telling you these Nigerians REALLY DO watch more Bollywood than us desi people ðthe boys are back with another cover pic.twitter.com/YtwQSiwtEu — Ali Gul Khan ð¹(@alidaudzai_) February 6, 2019 Their performance garnered some rave reviews from the Twitterati: “Ghar mai roti chahiye.” Someone get these guys on Sa re ga ma pa — de.eps (@deepduh) February 7, 2019 We've all done that. This sounds same when we sung in chorus in class during college. ð — Asha (@potterly_head) February 8, 2019 Likewise. that sure bring smile to my face — Prakhar nigam (@Prakharngm) February 7, 2019 This little clip clearly proves the mettle of SRK's fan base all around the world making him what he is today - King Of The World.

    Every Office Group

    What's it like in your work group? Do you have the over enthusiastic HR person, the employee who's tired of his job, the boss who's always trying to be cool and more in your office group? Here are some of the types of people you find in most office groups.
  4. Despite swimming in a pool of controversies, 'Koffee With Karan 6' is back with its next episode featuring Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan, who also happen to be host Karan Johar's closest friends. The episode promo has already intrigued us where Abhishek revealed that he is scared of his mom, but Shweta interuppted saying he's actually scared of his wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. View this post on Instagram The Bachchan siblings bring their A-Game to the Kouch. It's #KoffeeWithBachchans this week on #KoffeeWithKaran. A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Jan 13, 2019 at 8:52am PST While the episode airs tonight at 9 PM on Star World, here are some highlights from what will happen in the show. Whether you're a celebrity or a commoner, social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are something no one can live without these days. So, it's quite normal for one of the most powerful families in Bollywood to have a family group, isn't it? In tonight's episode, the Bachchan siblings reveal what their family is like on WhatsApp and turns out it's not very different from ours. Instagram When Karan Johar asks them about their WhatsApp family group, it was revealed that Jaya Bachchan is basically every Indian mother on WhatsApp. It was found that she is the most active amongst all and has a routine of sending sentimental and emotional videos every morning. Bachchan Sr. is usually quite active on Twitter, but on WhatsApp he majorly stays out of action. In fact, Abhishek says he has to be notified by an SMS and only then he reads the message. Aishwarya too stays mostly inactive and as Abhishek says, "takes ages to reply to calls or texts." Star World Apart from this, the siblings had a lot of fun revealing their family secrets and who's their parents favourite child. In the episode, it's revealed that Abhishek has mother Jaya's heart and she is like the filmy mother from 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham' who senses Abhishek's arrival and what's he going to do. Shweta even adds, "Today he will come home and he is going to be like this, mark my words", and it actually happened. Star World Abhishek took his revenge by telling Karan that for Amitabh Bachchan, his daughter is above all. He says, "Even if God also comes down, if Shwet Di is there it's all over! Nothing else matters to him.” Her opinion matters more than anything to him, he concluded. Looks like they are all set to bring the whole house down with their hilarious childhood secrets and funny stories.

  7. There is a famous training approach that all the gym trainers and desi gym gurujis have been married to since the dawn of time. It is the classic 'One body part a day' training approach aka the bro-split. Whenever a novice joins the gym with the goal to lose fat and get lean, they are often made to train this way by the desi gym trainers. © Pixabay Their training split looks like this: Monday - Chest Tuesday - Shoulder Wednesday - Back Thursday - Arms Friday - Legs Weekend - Off Reason? Pro bodybuilders train that way. Yeah, makes no sense at all. Now, if your goal is fat loss, the main thing that drives it is a caloric deficit. How do you create a caloric deficit, you ask? By eating lesser calories and by burning maximum calories possible. To understand the eating part, about what really matters, read this article.Think about it for a minute now, which exercise would help you burn more calories? Three sets of bicep curls or three sets of squats? Obviously, three sets of squats. And as you get leaner, those arms that you have been working on for a session straight will anyway show up. Better use them as accessory work than dedicating an entire session to it. If you want to burn more calories in the gym after reading this article, and if you are a beginner, you can follow this sample workout: © Pixabay Session A Leg Press - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Barbell Rows - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Machine Chest Press - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Lat Pulldowns - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Machine Overhead Press - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Triceps - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Biceps - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Session B Squats - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Seated Rows - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Decline Chest Press - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Reverse-Grip Lat Pulldowns - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Incline Dumbbell Press - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Calves - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Abs - 3 sets of 8 to 12 Your training split will effectively look like this: Monday - Session A Wednesday - Session B Friday - Session A Monday - Session B With this, not only you would be not going to the gym and wasting your time dedicating an hour of arm training, you will be able to do some other activity as well of your choice and enjoy training in general. And obviously, burn more calories. Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company.

  8. 'The Big Bang Theory' may be famous for Sheldon Cooper, who without a doubt is the king of quirk, but it also gave us Leonard Hofstadter, the guy who was at the centre of everything, who made nerds look cool, who gave all men the hope that they could land the woman of their dreams. via GIPHY From being a pure badass who stood up to his school bully to going after a woman way out of his league and winning her over by just being himself, Leonard slowly and steadily made his way into our hearts. via GIPHY In a group of friends, there is always a person like Leonard who looks out for his friends and take things in his stride when need be. Are you the Leonard of the group? via GIPHY Here are 10 points that can help you in identifying if you indeed are main man of your gang: 1. You're The Unofficial Leader Of Your Group via GIPHY Basically you are the glue that holds the group together. From making plans to deciding major things for the rest of the gang, you take the important calls and somehow end up taking care of everyone. 2. You Are Too Hard On Yourself via GIPHY You can't help but pick on your weaknesses and go over it again and again until you feel pretty crappy about yourself. You feel the need to be perfect and sometimes get a complex when you see someone, who you think is better than you. 3. You Go Out Of Your Way For Your Best Friend via GIPHY Literally. Be it financially, or saving him in awkward situation, you never leave your bro hanging and treat him like your brother. 4. You Can Be Savage If Need Be via GIPHY Sure you are nice guy, but there are times when your friends push the wrong buttons and you find yourself shutting them down in the most savage way possible. It's a rare occurrence, but when it happens, oh boy, the gang better prepare themselves. 5. You Can Transform From A Shy Guy To A Sexy Beast via GIPHY Usually you maintain your calm, shy persona when you're around the gang, but if need be, you can go through a major personality change for the ladies! 6. You Find Yourself Making Sacrifices For Your Friends via GIPHY You don't mind making those sacrifices, to be honest. At the end of the day, the happiness of your friends is the most important thing for you, and if that means making some tough choices for yourself, then you don't mind that. 7. Your Friends Are Your Family via GIPHY Each member in your gang is special and means something to you. Besides taking care and protecting them, you see them as your second family, which basically makes them an extremely important part of your life. 8. You Tend To Panic Pretty Quickly via GIPHY One of the problems that come with taking charge of the group is that there is a lot riding on you. Which can sometimes make you feel like you're losing control of certain situations, which can result in you freaking the f**k out. 9. You'll Do Anything For The Woman You Love via GIPHY Even if she is your girlfriend, or just a woman you adore from afar, you are willing to go above and beyond for her. Sometimes the adoration can go a little too far and you end up getting clingy and let her walk all over you, but that's part of your charm! 10. You're A Badass Despite Your Weaknesses via GIPHY Simply put…you're the boss! People may make fun of your looks, your quirks and what not, but deep down, they know you're a badass who is the centre of your group.
  9. WhatsApp has officially rolled out group calling feature on Android and iOS devices after the company launched voice and video call support back in 2016. The video and voice calling feature have been very receptive amongst users as users spend over 2 billion minutes on the platform's calling feature. © Whatsapp Now that the new group calling feature has rolled out, here's how you can use the new feature. Well, anything you do, make sure WhatsApp on your device has been updated in order to make use of this feature. After you've updated the app, here are the steps you need to follow. . Open WhatsApp from the home screen or your app drawer. . Click on the Calls Tab . Choose a contact from your list whom you want to call. (Video or Voice) . Once you are connected to a call, you can tap the add participant button on the top right corner. . Select the second contact from your list you wish to add on the call . You can add up to 4 participants in total in a single group call. Follow step 4 and step 5 each time. © Whatsapp WhatsApp mentioned in its blog that group calls are always going to be end-to-end encrypted, and they've designed calling to work reliably around the world in different network conditions. This would probably be the most used feature by people who would like to communicate with more people at once. Would you use this feature on your phone? Let us know in the comments.

  11. Are you a member of a busy Facebook Group? Do you find it overwhelming trying to sort through all the posts to find something posted the day before? Are you now missing new posts and only seeing them a few days later? Facebook Groups are tempting to use as they are free to set up but is this the best decision for the future of your business? At the beginning with just a handful of members, things may fun fine. But fast forward to where your group becomes busy with thousands of members posting and reading. Your group becomes overwhelming. You find it hard to locate posts made on previous days and search is of no use. It is getting harder to keep on top of troublesome and spamming members. Worse still, Facebook's changing algorithms mean that your members are not seeing every post you make. You do as Facebook asks and link your page to your group to find that you must now boost posts to reach your members. This is getting to be a very common scenario. Even more worrying are rumours that Facebook is bringing advertising to groups. Will this allow your competitors to target your hard won membership? Will Facebook roll out the "Discover" tab across all continents? This alone has destroyed organic reach for many brands. What would you do if Facebook blocked your account for a week? Would your sales suffer? There is a way to take back control of your membership and secure your business' future. Building your business on your own land is a powerful way of retaining complete control over your community regardless of what happens to Facebook longer term. Created in 2002, Invision Community has always adapted to the changing habits of the internet. Our latest product is clean, modern, mobile ready and equipped to integrate with social media. It can power your conversations, website and shopping cart. It features single click Facebook sign in and tools to promote scheduled content to your Facebook page. We recently wrote why you shouldn't settle for a Facebook Group when building a community. The benefits of an owned Invision Community are: You own your own data. Your data is not mined for Facebook's benefit. Make it yours by branding it your way You're no longer boxed in by the Facebook format Seamless integration to your shopping cart for more monetization opportunities Set up permission levels to better control what your members can see Lets dig in a look at some of the tools you can leverage to make the migration easier. Mobile Ready Invision Community works great on your mobile. It resizes the page perfectly to match whichever device you are using. You don't need to install special apps or mess with themes. It just works out of the box. Facebook Sign In The first thing you'll want to do is turn on Facebook Sign In. This adds the familiar Facebook button right on the sign in page and register form. Clicking this logs them into your new community with their Facebook account. It even imports their profile photo so they are familiar with other members. Make use of embeds A great way to keep incorporating content from your Facebook Group or Page is to use embeds. Post a link to your content on Facebook and it transforms into a rich media snippet. Social Promotions Share your community content with your Facebook Page. Click the "Promote" button on any content item and you can customize the text and images shared. The promotion system offers a full scheduling system much like Buffer or Hootsuite. This is all built in at no extra cost. Find Your Content Unlike a Facebook Group, your Invision Community makes it easy to find older content. A powerful feature is activity streams. These are customizable "feeds" much like the Facebook News Feed but completely editable to you and your members needs. You can even make this the first page your members see for easy content discovery. Use Clubs Clubs allow sub-communities to run inside your main community. Let's look at a real world example. A FitPro has several different fitness products for sale. Each product is a Facebook Group. She posts daily workouts and answers member's questions. Using many groups can be very time consuming to manage. Clubs puts these sub-communities right on the page making it easy to drop in and update. These Clubs can be private and members invited to join allowing full privacy. This is like a closed Facebook group. We're only scratching the surface of what Invision Community can offer you. You can take back control of your membership and be free from the fear that Facebook will change something that will impact your sales. We're experts in this field with 16 years of experience. We've helped grow thousands of communities from the very biggest brands to the smallest of niches. We'd love to talk to you about your needs.
  12. Invision Power Board had already implemented the code into their system but somewhere along the lines the code got broken and before long you needed a plugin to fix it. This fix however is really simple and doesnt require any plugins, it fixes the userlink formatting pretty much all over the website. Step 1: Go to the theme you want to implement the fix to, and select the HTML Template "userLink" its found under core > front > global Step 2: Replace the entire code in "userLink" with the following below {{if $member->member_id AND \IPS\Member::loggedIn()->canAccessModule( \IPS\Application\Module::get( 'core', 'members' ) ) }}<a href='{{if $warningRef}}{$member->url()->setQueryString( 'wr', $warningRef )}{{else}}{$member->url()}{{endif}}' data-ipsHover data-ipsHover-target='{$member->url()->setQueryString( array( 'do' => 'hovercard', 'wr' => $warningRef, 'referrer' => urlencode( \IPS\Request::i()->url() ) ) )}' title="{lang="view_user_profile" sprintf="$member->name"}" class="ipsType_break">{$member->group['prefix']|raw}{$member->name}{$member->group['suffix']|raw}</a>{{endif}} and your done just reload your forum and you will see the difference
  13. Whether you run an existing community or are taking tentative first steps into setting up an online community forum around your brand, an important choice you need to make is between social networks like Facebook or having a community you own and control. Let's take a look at the benefits of an owned community versus a Facebook group - as well as how you can still use Facebook (and other social media platforms) to your advantage. You own your data The biggest point to consider when using Facebook groups is that you do not own your own data. Facebook owns it and does not even allow you direct access to it. If you decide later to move to a different platform, need to run reports to extract meaningful insights, or otherwise work with your community data: you are out of luck. In contrast, with an Invision Community, your data is your data. You can use it in any way that makes sense for your goals; be it analyzing trends, sending promotions to users, or generating reports and statistics. We never hold your data hostage and there's no fee to get it. Beyond owning the data, you also control how it's used and presented. Facebook is notorious for changing algorithms for when (or even if) people see your posts. When you run your own community the experience for your and your users is in your control. Branding opportunities This is a big one. An owned community gives you the tools you need to make your community a seamless part of your user's interaction with your business. This naturally includes your brand styles (your logo, colors, site navigation and so on) but also your community web address (URL). With an owned community, your URL will be easy to find - customers normally opt for something like forum.yourname.com or community.yourname.com. Users will have more confidence that they're in the right place, and more closely associate your community and your message with your brand. Emails sent out by your owned community can also carry your branding, consistently reinforcing that connection between your business and your community. And, of course, when users share content from your community to Facebook and other social networks, they're sending users directly to your website where you have the opportunity to lead with your most important call to actions. More control over user experience All Facebook groups are, essentially, the same experience and yet your business needs almost certainly aren't the same as every other. One size doesn't necessarily fit all when it comes to community! When you control your own community, you have the ability to control your user's experience. Need to show specific types of data in specific places? You can do that (and more) with Invision Community's easy to use Blocks feature. Need to create a custom community application to serve as a resource center for product support? You can do that too. Another huge benefit of this control is that, unlike a Facebook Group, users won't be seeing ads and 'recommended content' from competing businesses and communities. With user attention being pulled in so many directions these days, the last thing your community needs is for users to leave because Facebook has suggested a competitor! No barriers to monetization Not all communities require a monetization strategy. In many cases, the community is part of a larger customer relationship strategy rather than a revenue-generating destination in its own right. But for those communities that do plan to monetize, options with a Facebook group are at best difficult to act upon, and at worst practically non-existent. In contrast, Invision Community gives you the opportunity to explore monetization strategies that work for you. These might include paid subscription plans (a particularly attractive option for fan club communities), traditional advertising through Google AdSense and other networks, or sponsorship deals with other businesses that might be relevant to your members. Invision Community has tools for each of these approaches built in, allowing you to start monetizing with minimum fuss. Fine-grained permission controls Facebook groups struggle to reflect the real-world roles that staff members play in your organization, limiting your choices to 'administrator' or 'moderator'. And the same is true of users, too - your options for recognizing different levels of user (such as VIPs, or brand ambassadors) are limited. Invision Community is different. Since you are creating and configuring each member group, you can precisely control who can see what, and how they are recognized within the community. You can even sync these roles via Single Sign-On (SSO) making setup and assigning users to groups painless. For staff groups, you can limit access to key community functions based on roles or responsibilities, ensuring access is granted on an as-needed basis only. For users, you can get creative and find a group structure that works best for your specific needs. For example, support communities often find that recognizing the most knowledgeable and helpful members with a new member group (complete with elevated permissions) is a great way of engaging users. And finally, with this control over access, it's very easy to create restricted areas of the community. Whether you want to create a private subforum that staff can use to coordinate tasks or a file repository that's only available to subscribers, Invision Community can achieve it. You can still reap the Facebook benefits Setting up your community within Facebook's walls might not be the best approach for you. That doesn't mean you should ignore Facebook, however. On the contrary, it's an influential platform and there's a very good chance your users are already using it. Invision Community offers a number of tools that allow you to benefit from Facebook while avoiding the drawbacks we discussed. We'll go into more detail on utilizing social media in a future article, but to summarize: Invision Community features social sign-in options, enabling users to register and log in using their existing social media accounts, substantially reducing onboarding friction. Content can promoted by staff back to your social network pages, automatically and on a schedule you decide. Invision Community supports automatic embedding of a wide number of social networks (and other services), allowing users to share their favorite Facebook and Twitter posts and spark a whole new conversation - but this time in your community. Summary When you are creating an online community for your business or hobby it is important to think about your goals and future growth by choosing a platform that is there to work for your needs. When you establish your community on Facebook, you're helping to grow someone else's business (including, potentially, your competitors!) and hoping that some of those spoils fall to you. With an owned community, the rewards of your hard work belong to you and your business alone. Invision Community has been enabling users and businesses to communicate online since 2002, and we're proud of our reputation as a platform that puts control in your hands.

  15. This is an entry about our IPS Community Suite 4.2 release. The ability to automatically promote users from one group to another based on set parameters has been a staple of community software for some time. Traditionally, the most common determination of promotion has been post count. Additionally, the 4.x Community Suite supports promoting members automatically based on the time elapsed since the user joined the site and based on their total reputation count. With 4.2, we have completely overhauled and enhanced the group promotion feature bringing many new options to administrators looking to promote members through different group levels. To start with, the group promotion options have been removed from the groups configuration pages into their own area. Group promotion rules overview page You will notice that rules are no longer strictly tied to a single group, and that rules can be sorted however you desire. When you create and edit rules, you can choose which groups the rule applies to, what parameters the user needs to meet in order for the rule to be activated, and then finally, which primary and secondary groups the user will be moved in to. You can also configure the rule to remove specified secondary groups, which can be useful if one rule adds a secondary group for users, and then the next rule should change them to be part of a different secondary group (i.e. add a new secondary group, but also remove the previously awarded secondary group). The system uses the same member filters available when configuring bulk mail, and we have made some updates to the member filters area (and have introduced some new filters) in this release as well. For example, you can create a rule that only applies to members who have won the daily leaderboard at least once, or members who have created a blog. Some of the group promotion filters, which are also available when sending bulk mails Any time a member account is updated for any reason (a new visit, editing the member, the member makes a new post, etc.), the software will loop through all configured rules and the last rule in the list that matches the member will be applied. This approach allows you to create promotion levels, for instance when a member reaches 100 posted content items they will be promoted to a new group, and when they reach 1000 posted content items they will be promoted to yet a different new group. Groups can be wholly excluded from any promotion rules, which is useful when you have administrator and/or moderator groups and you want to ensure that they are never moved to a different group. These groups will be disabled from selection when configuring group promotion rules, and these groups will be ignored if "any group" is selected for a promotion rule. Finally, if a user is moved to a new primary group by Commerce because they have purchased a product which moves them to a new group, they will also be excluded from group promotion rules (however, Commerce purchases that only adjust secondary groups will not exclude users from being checked by group promotion rules). Developer note: You can add your own filters for group promotion rules (and bulk mails) by adding MemberFilter extensions in 4.2, available in the Developer Center for your application.

  16. Group Formatting is a great way to apply flare and personality to a usergroup, by making their names so fancy they become the envy of anyone who see's them, and there is quite a lot you can do with it. A little understanding in CSS/HTML goes a long way with these. You can really get creative and tinker away like crazy with these once you get into it (I personally find it fun, xD). Before getting into it (for the benefit for anyone literally just stepping into this the makeup for your usergroup is configured in the form of prefix code and suffix code. Prefix code controls what comes before the code, and how the group name is formatted, and the suffix code closes off the prefix code and if you want anything like an image to appear after the username, then it's added into the suffix code. For IPB when you go to the edit screen for a group the group formatting part is just: Group Formatting [ ] Group Name [ ] FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style=''> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> So! The above code is where it all starts! Just drop the prefix part into the first box, and the suffix part into the second box. All the code you add to fab-up your usergroup will go between the apostrophes ( ' ' ) and if you are using multiple elements in your formatting you must make sure to put a space after the semicolon ( ; ). If you are unsure, don't worry I show examples of how to do this later on down the guide. FORMAT When we think of text format we mainly think of it's use in posts and comments. It comes in many flavours bold, italic, underline and strikethrough but all of these can be applied to group formatting too. An example of this is where staff groups have their names in bold to make them standout more, or someone who is banned has a line through their name, and I suppose some people can be weird and find uses for italic and underline in group formatting, that's cool too! FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-weight:bold;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-style:italic;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='text-decoration:underline;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='text-decoration:line-through;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Buuuut... There is a simpler way of doing text style, of which I'll show below... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <b><span style=''> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span></b> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <i><span style=''> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span></i> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <u><span style=''> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span></u> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <strike><span style=''> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span></strike> COLOUR More than often people first think of colour when it comes to customizing the makeup of a group, and I'm not joking, an almost infinite well of possibility is with colour! You can use the HEX code of any colour you want and if you aren't into that there is still a lot of options for people that wish to specify their colour by name. Just remember if you're using HEX to include the hashtag ( # ), and if you put in a colours name and it doesn't work, then use it's HEX instead. If you wish to browse the infinate well of colours I will leave two sources for your viewing pleasure. Colour Names: http://www.html-color-names.com/ or http://www.computerhope.com/htmcolor.htm FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='color:red;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='color:#ff0000;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> FONT In terms of adding uniqueness to your group name, giving it it's own font is really up there! It's not that common seen either (in my experience anyway) which is a darn shame because in my opinion it's the top way to add personality to your group, and allows you to really create a unique style look between your groups. A list of fonts below! Arial Comic Sans MS Courier New Georgia Lucida Sans Unicode Tahoma Times New Roman Trebuchet MS Verdana Now for how we actually use 'em! FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-family:arial;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-family:comic sans ms;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-family:courier new;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-family:lucida sans unicode;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-family:tahoma;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-family:times new roman;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-family:trebuchet ms;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-family:verdana;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> SHADOW One thing I see being askws commonly in communities like this is "How do I add shadows to usernames?" and in honesty it's easy, buuut... If you are wanting to tinker with the shadow you can change the colour and pixel ( px ) values until you get a result you are happy with. Oh! I almost forget! With the right amount of tinkering you can also make the shadow act like an outline.. Which is also! VERY COOL! So! The shadow! Though a quick heads up, text shadow often looks like a glowing effect, but trust me.. It's still awesome! FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px black;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Now for code for making your text shadow act like an outline! I've used this quite a bit myself, and do think it looks really good! FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='text-shadow: -1px 0 black, 0 1px black, 1px 0 black, 0 -1px black;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> COMBINING ELEMENTS Now you've got all these elements to choose from, it's time to start combining what we wanna use and create something awesome and unique! ...And good news! It's easy! At the start of the guide that I'd provide examples of combining the elements, so! Let's go! Verdana Blue FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-family:verdana; color:blue;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Red Italic Shadow (Glow) FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='color: red; font-style:italic; text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px black;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <i><span style='color: red; text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px black;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span></i> Underline Indigo Comic Sans MS Shadow (Outline) FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='test-decoration:underline; color:indigo; font-family:comic sans ms; text-shadow: -1px 0 black, 0 1px black, 1px 0 black, 0 -1px black;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <u><span style='color:indigo; font-family:comic sans ms; text-shadow: -1px 0 black, 0 1px black, 1px 0 black, 0 -1px black;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span></u> ADDING IMAGE TO THE FORMATTING Another great way to really make your groups look unique is to put little images before or after the names them. Remember if you want the image to be before the username then you put the code in the prefix box, and if you want it to come after the username then you put the code in the suffix box. just take extra care to remember that the code either goes before your code in the prefix box, or after your code in the suffix box! FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <img src="" width="" height=""><span style=''> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style=''> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span><img src="" width="" height=""> Not in order to get the image to show you'll need a direct link to the image so it can be grabbed, if you are worried about your image being taken down or anything you can host it in your own webspace, or through a imaging website like imgur ( www.imgur.com ). As long as you are using the direct link to the image, it'll work. Oh! Also, don't forget to fill in the width and height numbers so the code knows what dimensions you want the image to be. Example for reference... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <img src="http://i.imgur.com/QeM3VxE.png" width="20" height="20"><span style=''> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> Or... FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style=''> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span><img src="http://i.imgur.com/QeM3VxE.png" width="20" height="20"> FUN EXTRAS Now! While we've explored many ways to make your group unique and fancy through formatting, there is plenty otherwise to go about it too! Here are just a few more bits of code to tinker with your group formatting! FIRST BOX (PREFIX): <span style='font-variant:small-caps;'> SECOND BOX (SUFFIX): </span> And...
