Would you like to customize your prefixes?

Here’s a simple DIY tutorial as an example. Of course you can extended it for your own needs as you wish.

So, read this tutorial to achieve something like this:


1. Create your custom prefix

In admin CP go to Forums > Thread prefixes and click on button Add prefix on the right top side.

Fill the form like this:


You can choose any prefix name you want, just change pack-a with your desired name.

* dont’ forget to select applicable forums at the bottom

2. Add code to your extra.less template

Open you extra.less template and add the code:

/*** Prefix Pack A ***/
.label.label--pack-a {
    background: #CD7F32;
    color: #fafafa;
    &:hover {
        background: #4A4E51;
        color: #fafafa;
    &:before {
        padding-right: 5px;

For different prefix name just change pack-a in the code.

To edit prefix when hover check class &:hover.

To edit prefix icon check class &:before. To change the Font Awesome icon eidt the word cogs (in above example) with any other icon name.

Want a Pro icon of a specific style?

Edit .m-faBase(); and change it to .m-faBase('Pro', @faWeight-solid);.m-faBase('Pro', @faWeight-regular); or .m-faBase('Pro', @faWeight-light);.

Want a Brand icon?

Edit .m-faBase(); and change it to .m-faBase('Brands');.

That’s basically it. To add more custom prefixes just go through the above procedure for each prefix.
