    [accordion=bcenter|85%]
    {slide=Description|open}This addon allows users to stylize their username and title using HTML and CSS. This is permission based so administrators can choose which users/groups are allowed and which are not. It also allows the use of stylized username in places where XenForo would generally not use what is called "rich" username.

    -Administrators can change styling used by users in the AdminCP

    {/slide}
    {slide=Admin Options}
    Once installed, you can change various options in the 'Options' section on your site. As an administrator you can choose which tags and attributes are allowed, this way their is no javascript event execution and there is tighter control on what the user may use. You may also choose to override some of the default styling used for usernames and titles in xenforo. Below are screenshots of the options available:

    To allow a user to change the styling, give them permissions in 'User Permissions' or 'Group Permissions'.
    Their are two permissions, each for username customisation and title customisation.

    {/slide}
    {slide=Installation}Use Add-On Installer by Chris Deeming or the following:
    1. The zip file contains an "upload" folder. Upload the contents of the folder in the root XF folder, thereby creating a library/HtmlUserNames directory on your server.
    2. The zip file contains a "addon-HtmlUserNames.xml" file. Import the appropriate XML in your Admin CP.
    {/slide}
    {slide=Usage}
    -Once installed, and setup in the AdminCP, admins can go to user edit page and a tab titled 'Stylize Me' would be available, click on it and you can change the styling for the user.
    ScreenShot00086.png

    -Once a user has permissions they can go to their preferences page a style their username and/or title depending on permissions given. An explanation of how to style, what tags and attributes may be used will be displayed as well as the current style.

    -Their is inbuilt validation to make sure when setting up the styling, the required placeholders ({username} and {usertitle}) are placed exactly once or the field left empty.
