 using member group prefix colours for backgrounds
hi! so i've recently begun coding a mini-profile for the first time. i've had an idea of what i wanted a certain part of it to look like -- a line of white text with a #membergroupcolour background that (when hovered over) transforms into a white background with #membergroupcolour text. basically an inverse effect. pretty simple to code outside of the mini-profile, so i figured it would be the same...

obviously that wasn't the case l-lol

i found out that the variable for member group colours can't replace a hexcode. as in the <!-- |prefix| --> and <!-- |suffix| --> variables can't be used in this ---> color: #hexcode or background-color: #hexcode

technically i could just surround the text on the white background with the prefix/suffix variables -- but that doesn't fix the other version, where the member colour needs to be the background colour. is it true that the prefix/suffix variables can't change the colour of a background/anything that's not text? is there any way to work around this? i hope i explained everything properly. if not, tl;dr=i want the background-color to change depending on the member group.

thanks. c:
I think I understand what you're saying but you may be complicating things by attempting to use this variables do it in the way you wish.

Are you saying that you tried to use <!-- |prefix| --> and <!-- |suffix| --> variables as part of css attributes - e.g. entered #000 as a prefix and tried to use it like so:

background-color: <!-- |prefix| -->;

This will really cause all sorts of problems and wasn't the intended use really - if you are looking to configure certain pieces of css to be different per-member group, then it would be easier to instead use the <!-- |g_id| --> identifier.

For example, you can do this in the mini profile:

<div class='member-goup-mpcolor-<!-- |g_id| -->'>stuff here</div>

As an example, root admin members have group ID 4. So, you can use this identifier to put this into your stylesheet:

/* Admin colors */
.member-goup-mpcolor-4 { background-color: #000; color: #fff }

You can then do this for every member group and it's a lot more flexible and easier to use.

Makes sense?
