Wordpress - Assigning 4 user groups to 4 different colors

Hi,

I use Arras theme for my Wordpress website.
I have some coached students (on poker) and they are posting in the website.
In my coaching program there are 4 teams with 4 different colours.
I am trying to find a way to "flag" those colours and give different access to pages for every team.

Examples:
- When a member of team "A" posts something there is somewhere (name, title, page backround) his team colour.
- When he leaves a comment there is again a colour or a "title" of his team
- When he opens a "registered members" page (not exist) he redirects to a page about his team.

DIfficult?
Any ideas?

My website...
http://www.poker-scholarship.com/

The teams

Thank you in advance.

Hi,
I would think you would need someone who knows wordpress very well and can program something into your theme.
You may find you need to outsource this job.. Eg: Elance etc..

Maybe a different way to approach it would be create 4 separate sub-blogs. These WordPress blogs would sit "inside" your main blog but you could assign players to one of the 4 sub-blogs so they only have control over those mini-sites.

You could even set them up as sub-domains e.g. team1.poker-scholarship.com etc.

That is really smart Mark, but it will not work for me.
There are only 1-2 pages per team and the member are changing teams.
Like school classes.

About the elance...
Troy. I was thinking about it, but I dont know how much it is going to cost.
I don't want to post something and get some bids and then I cancel.

Do you know about how much?

No sorry I don't.
If you post a job you can always cancel it if you do not want to go ahead with it.
If you do post the job, make sure you are VERY clear about what you want.
