    NOTE: Only works for IPS 3.X, not 4.0+.
    A few people have asked me how to do this, so I figured I'd show how to do it for those who don't know. Yes I know it is relatively simple.

    Step 1.

    Go to your AdminCP -> Look & Feel -> Manage Skin Sets & Templates -> YOUR SKIN -> Topic View -> and find "post"

    Step 2.

    Once in "post", near the top add this:

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    <if test="$post['author']['member_group_id'] == MEMBER GROUP ID">
    #post_id_{$post['post']['pid']} .author_info {
    background-image: url(IMAGE URL);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    }
    </if>
    </style>
    Step 3.
    Fill in the missing info.
    You can find your member group ID by going to: Members -> Member Groups -> Manage Member Groups. The ID will be next to the usergroup.

    Step 4. You're done! Enjoy.

    Here's what it'll look like:



    If you have better ways of doing this, feel free to post below.

    EDIT:

    For users using the "Villain" skin, place it under this:
    Code:
    <if test="$this->settings['horizontalTopicView']='no'"></if>
    <!-- -->
    <!--post:{$post['post']['pid']}-->

    The way I do it for clients is add the associate group ID as a class and then use CSS to declare those values, it gives you more freedom to what you edit and for what group. Alternatively, you can add the class to the entire post and then have more control on things like the post contents or extra custom info. Your way is not wrong, but very specific.

    They ask you, then you ask me, then I do it for you, then you do it for them. It's a circuit!

    This adds a background per member, instead of per member group, which is what I'm adding. Still a useful application though
