I doubt we'll get to change things like this any time soon, since emma is gone. We don't have any PHP devs around here, sadly.

Can't that just be done with CSS?

That depends on how things are set up. Most likely yeah, but still I'm not sure if emma even accepts pull requests.

You can edit the css themes of forums without touching postmill.

Alright, didn't know you had that much freedom with the themes. That's awesome.

You can all test out the various themes in your user settings.

sorry but do you think you could make a wiki for tag extordinare? just copy and paste this and make the title Tag Extraordinaire: THE GUIDE

Hey guys,

I've seen some posts about a post being created based around information about tags and how to get them off. So I've brought you another extraordinaire guide to help you newer guys out.

Honestly before I begin, once you know how to take off one tag it's pretty self explanatory on how to take off another tag. EVEN if it's different.

KEEPERS (Aka alpha cases)

ADJUSTABLE KEEPER The first type of keeper we have is one used a lot in TjMaxx, Marshals, or Ross. Basically anywhere that protects their perfumes or fragrances.

Here's the photo:

To get these undone you need an S3 key and you attach it to the back of the case. You should see where they can make them taller or smaller back their and that's exactly where you put the key.

Multi-Use KEEPER This type of keeper is the alpha box we all know and love. It's found at various department stores and electronic stores to hold valuables.

Here's the photo:

To get these undone you will find TWO NOTCHES, on the bottom opposite to where the switch to unlock them is. You will align the notches on your S3 key to these notches and press the release switch.

MEDIA KEEPER This type of keeper is usually what holds DVDs or CDs. Found in almost every electronic store that sells this type of media.

Here's the photo:

Now to get these open we are gunna need our S3 key. I've unfortunately seen a couple different models and brands of these. Some are going to have the release on the top and some on the bottom. Again find the notches and release.

SPIDER WEB I've honestly never seen this before but again you can see the notches in the picture align your S3 key and release.

Here's the photo:

SPIDER WRAPS

ALARMING WRAPS This is commonly put on alcohol or as I've seen golf clubs. To release you simply align your S3 key and push the release button.

Here's the photo:

XL SPIDER WRAP These wraps are found at many large retailers protecting electronics or other random valuables. In the picture I circled where you align the S3 key and the arrow is pointing to where you push in and then pull to release the cables.

Here's the photo:

MINI SPIDER WRAP these are found just about everywhere. On phone cases to other smaller items. To open these I once again circled in the photo where the notches are to put your S3 key and an arrow to where you will push then pull to release the cables.

Here's the photo:

REGULAR SPIDER WRAP This is the original spider wrap and is probably the most abundant. It's a little different than the others. To release you don't put the S3 to the large circle. There are small notches on the opposite end. I've circled in the picture where to align and drew an arrow to where you push in and pull to release the cables.

Here's the photo:

BOTTLE CAP LOCKS There are 3 different types included in this photo album. They are found in many department stores to keep alcohol safe. In all the pictures you can see the notches and where to place your S3 key. Then you simply push the release button.

HARD TAG ALPHA These are alpha clothing tags, I've seen Nordstroms carry these. You put a detacher on the large bulb and it will pop right open. Again these are usually found in high end retailers. I've seen this in a cable lock version also. Same method applies. Don't try to reattach, It will chirp.

Here's the photo:

CLOTHING TAG 1 I've seen these everywhere. They are in H&M, A&E, Nordstroms, and most places in the mall. These are small and sometimes just my stack of magnets gets the job done. However sometimes I need my detacher.

Here's the photo:

CABLE LOCKS I've seen these types of locks at any retailer that cares about jackets or their apparel. I've grouped them together because in all three you can see where the notches are to put your S3. Once you attach your S3 the cables should pop out. Be careful reattaching because they may chirp very loudly.

Here's the photos:

HANG LOCKS I've personally never seen these. You can see where the notches are to attach your S3. Once that's attached it will pop right open.

SOURCE TAGS These can be anywhere. They can be inside a product or on the outside. This will cause EAS gates to go off. They are small and easily not seen. They are very easy to pull off and leave in store.

Here's the photo:

GATOR TAGS These are the easiest tags to get off until you get a detacher. Then they become the most cumbersome. MAGNETS DO NOT take these types of tags off. You will need a rubber band to get them off. Wrap the rubber band between where each piece connects. Then wrap it around about 10 times. Twist the long part of the tag. You should hear clicking. Continue this process until the tag pops off.

**Be carful of ink they are more fragile than you think.

SUPER CLOTHING TAGS These are found a lot in Europe. H&M also has them. My stack of magnets has never ever worked on these. Only my detacher will pop these open. You simply put the detacher on the tag and it will pop open.

Here's the photo:

CONE CLOTHING TAG H&M also carries these. I've seen them at PAC sun also. Again my stack of magnets will not get these tags off. To detach you put your detacher on the pointy end to release. It should just pop off.

Here's a photo:

HOOK TAG I personally love these types of tags. You just need a small hook and you're set. These are found everywhere. Dicks almost exclusively uses these. You simply put the hook into the hole and push them it pops open. There is a smaller version of this and they are sometimes harder to open. Just juggle it until it opens.

**MAGNETS will not work on these

Here's the photo:

RFID These little bastards can be anywhere. They are usually a small sticker that is placed on a product. They will make the EAS gates go off. Either rip them off or cut through them to disable them.

Here's a photo:

SUMMARY So I hope you guys found this useful. I obviously posted a lot of different types of tags but I'm positive there's a lot I'm missing. Hopefully you all can see a pattern with these tags to help you with any tags I didn't post. They all work basically the same way. You just need to determine if it's release by an S3, hook, or magnet. Then you can pretty well assume where and how to unlock it.

Good luck guys, stay safe.
