The WelcomeHero by default doesn't disappear until the user dismisses it themselves; once dismissed, this will create a record in their browser's local storage which indicates that the welcome hero was dismissed and should be hidden from view. If the user visits your forum on a new device, even logged out they will see the WelcomeHero again until it's dismissed once more.
Edit: I've added this to my running list of extension ideas to see if we can possibly store
welcomeHidden as a user preference instead and once the user registers, we can set this value in the
extend.php file to true. The other part that I'd need to play around with is possibly overriding the WelcomeHero (if that's possible, haven't experimented with that yet) or removing it and replacing it with my own component. It would also be neat if this was a configurable preference under user settings to allow users to bring back the hero themselves whenever they wanted to.
admiralarjun I always had idea of giving usernames different colors, i guess that can be achieved if we have class for the groups. Or am i missing anything?
Different username colors based on the color of the group(s) assigned to them? Not sure if this meets your needs regarding this question.
