We recently enabled Rank Based Topic Icons in our community so we can highly posts from specific users in order ensure these posts get priority attention from our team.
Question: Is it possible to show the rank based topic icon for posts in the Idea Exchange? Also looking at showing this icon in Search Results as an alternative... but that doesn't seem to work in our community.
@jjeremiah - It should be same across the community. Could you please check if these rank icons are hidden via CSS? Look for this class lia-user-rank-icon lia-user-rank-icon-left and this lia-user-rank-icon lia-user-rank-icon-right
By default, they appear on Ideas as well as on search page. (Blogs, TKBs and all pages)
I think John is not referring to the rank icons to the left and right of the member name, but the "Rank based topic icons" functionality. This will show a different topic icon on board pages if the topic has been started by a member with a certain rank. RobbL shared some more details and possible usage scenarios here: https://community.lithium.com/t5/Support-Forum/What-does-this-permission-do-Allow-user-to-view-user-...
Now to the question of these topic icons showing on an idea exchange:
Is your community using the responsive skin and layout on the idea exchange already, @jjeremiah ?
Thank you for the help.
I'm specifically asking about the Topic Icons ... not the user Rank Icons. (left or right of the user name)
We have a responsive skin and layout... Lithium PS helped us to style our Idea Exchange page.
Thanks Varun -
Specifcally, I'm talking about the "Rank-Based Topic Icons".... .In the permissions table - you can see the permission to view these icons.
The Rank Based Icons are defined for a given rank here:
And in the rank table, there is a column "Icon", where they show up after the Rank name.:
@jjeremiah - Thanks for the additional info here. In that case, please check the reply from @ClaudiusH above where he asked if your community is using the responsive skin and layout on the idea exchange already?
Just tried it out on our stage community: Looks like the user profile widget that is showing the idea author is not rendering the rank based topic icon. This seems to be currently only supported on the forum board's "message-list" component.
I think on the idea exchange list's "byline-author-date" component it's worth putting some thought on where to place it since the formatting differs a bit from the forum's message-list. I would suggest you raise the support for rank topic icons with Lithium support to get it prioritized.
