    1. Selecting an icon for a user without permission to select their own
      If a user is in group(s) without icon selection permission and I edit that user in the Admin CP (checking "Apply changes to username customization" and then choosing an icon for them), the icon doesn't appear next to their username.
    2. Username colours don't appear if there is group styling
      Ideally, I'd like styling select for a user to override their group styling. Because of where the style is applied this does not occur. (Images attached)

    1. Hum this is odd, it was never reported, I'll have to investigate.
    2. Indeed, this needs fixing. Thanks for reporting.

    Hey @MtoR - thanks for fixing those two issues.

    I realized once I updated that issue #1 has a sibling problem in that if their group does not have "Select user name color" or "Select user title color" permissions then those settings cannot be applied/changed from the Admin CP. (A user colour from the Admin CP does not apply to a user without permission to select their own.)

    Not sure to get you.
    Are the color applied or you don't see them changed ?
    Do they change on front end ?

    I don't want people to be able to change their own username colour but want to be able to set it for certain users as a termporary prize without requiring a new user group.
    So user group permissions are set like this: Screen Shot 2018-10-29 at 10.16.57.png
    Then I edit the user to give them a username colour like this in the Admin CP: Screen Shot 2018-10-29 at 10.17.22.png

    Then when I go to the board, only the group colour shows and no member title colour (but the icon does show now!) - like this: Screen Shot 2018-10-29 at 10.17.32.png



    Does that help?

    Understood, I'll have to check.
    As I just released a maintenance version, expect at least a week before I check that out.

    I expect a lot of your energy will be focused on XF 2.1 very soon, so I'm wondering if this is still on your radar to fix in the next little while?

    Well we were already focused on xF2, slowly though, anyways 2.1 won't be a huge change for us.
    Most certainly some little arrangements.

    But yeaj will try tomorrow.
