Layout Changes

tigel

Good day,


Thank you for your great product!  I’m wondering how I would go about making a few changes to my service.

 

I’m currently using your free product but am not opposed to moving to a paid product if I’m able to make a few updates that I’d like.  I have your service as per the screen shot below and I’d like to hide or remove the New Topic line above sub-forums and I’d also like to remove the feeds link and the free forum by nabbble and edit this page links at the bottom.  Is that possible?

 

Thanks in advance!

Terry

Unfortunately, the way your images were attached to your email means that they did not display in the support forum. I would recommend posting directly on the forum and not by email if your posts are to include images.

Nabble does not currently have a paid product, but I understand a number of options are being considered, including going open source.

Hiding the entire New Topic line suggests that you do not want people to respond to you posts and that you intend always to post via email yourself. That suggests that you may be better off exploring other products as the whole point of forum software is to encourage response from multiple users.

It is possible to stop other users posting via:
Options > Users > Change Permissions
The same screen allows you to prevent the People link appearing.
Topics View is an important feature for many especially where replies to posts appear and where sub-forums have been created.
However most important is removal of the Options link as It is through you control all the features of the forum. The options on the menu are all personalised. For example, those who are not Administrators will only see the Subscribe via email option.

Removing the items in the footer is possible by use of the "Edit this page" link, so you probably don't want to remove that. It allows you to edit the NAML macros that generates the HTML code on the site. There is code provided on this forum that explains how this link can be made to appear only to tnose logged in as administrators.
I don't understand the request to remove the Feeds link. What benefit is that intended to have for your users?

Removal of the "Free forum by Nabble" link breaks Nabble's T&C and could result in your forum being deleted, though should Nabble reintroduce chargeable options then removal of the link may become possible.
