Usergroup Legend on Forumhome for vB 4
Version 1.1.1
(By Boofo)

What does this product do?
This product will show the user groups you have available on your site in a legend on the forumhome. It will also check to see if the 'Spiders Display on Forumhome and Who's Online' product is installed and enabled. If found, "Spiders" will be added to the end of the Legend.

Thanks to LifesGreatestGift for the CSS and style variable help.

Version Information:
Version 1.0.0 --Initial release for vBulletin 4.1.2
Version 1.0.1 --Fixed issue with there not being enough space between the legend and activeusers when the legend was placed above activeusers. Also switched from p tags to spans tags to make it 100% XHTML 1.0 Transitional compliant. The centered legends are now centered on the full width of the wgo box, sans the left margin.
Version 1.0.2 --Spider Display Font Color is now set by the style variable setting for the spider color in the 'Spiders Display on Forumhome and Who's Online' v1.0.6 mod, if it is installed.
Version 1.0.3 --Removed Enable/Disable setting and added "Do not show Usergroup Legend" as the first option in the "Usergroup Legend on Forumhome Location" setting.
Version 1.0.4 --Fixed full line break spacing.
Version 1.0.5 --Changed the hook to avoid conflicting with Paul M's mods.
Version 1.0.6 --Added 3 more location settings (Above activeusers centered with 1/2 and full line breaks).
Version 1.0.7 --Added Usergroup Separator setting. You can now choose from 10 different separators to show between the usergroups.
Version 1.0.8 --Added 2 more separators to the separator setting, for a total of 12. (vertical bar and horizontal ellipsis = three dot leader)
Version 1.0.9 --Fixed legend from being pushed too far left if the line was too long. Added setting for usergroups allowed to view the legend. Removed "Do not show Usergroup Legend" as the first option in the "Usergroup Legend on Forumhome Location" setting. Added setting to show "Spiders" at the end of the legend. Added setting to show Spider Image as a separator before "Spiders" in the legend.
Version 1.1.0 --Added style variable to change the color of the legend separator. Rewrote code to add CSS instead of coding it all inline.
Version 1.1.1 --Fixed CSS as it was showing the usergroups stacked in IE. Also added a phrase for the word "Spiders".
