This mod adds three tags - [admin], [gmod] and [mod] - to the system which provide the ability for moderators and administrators to add comments clearly delineated as such.

All three are permission controlled; you can give out each button to any user group independently; for example you may have co-admins who are effectively admins without them having the 'administrate forum' permission, and this would allow you to grant it to them.

Groups who are not authorised to use these tags cannot do so and the tags are removed if they attempt to use them.

For themers: you can customise the resultant blocks by styling .admin_comment, .gmod_comment and .mod_comment respectively.

Package Manager should work in most cases. If you need to make any edits, the full list can be obtained from the Parse function on the right.
