Hi everyone!

My first post here ..... so far I must say I like what I see with FUDforum! Thanks for all the work everyone has put into it.

I'm keen to remove the following line of text and links:

Show: Today's Messages :: Unread Messages :: Unanswered Messages :: Show Polls :: Message Navigato

How do I go about doing it?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the links - I'm hoping for something a little more specific. My coding experience is somewhat limited!

So is mine but like all things we need to start somewhere, a little here a little there and pretty soon you're coding.

Totally agree ...... I did some unsuccessful experimenting with the show.tmpl ... so I know I need to gain a better understanding of how it works!

That's the way I've learned so far, lots of failures but it wouldn't be fun without some challenges would it?

Personally though I would leave the links in place rather than remove them, but I understand that not everyone feels the same. The way things are going eventually FUDforum will do every thing.

Thanks for this! It almost did exactly what I hoped it would do and taught me a lot about how Fudforum works!

I cleared out the show.tmpl completely - this removed it on the forum home page, the category page and the message page.

It did not however remove it on the forum page itself.

Any further suggestions of how to remove it from there?

Certainly wouldn't be fun! However if the learning has been done before and people are willing to share it I'm all for it.....communities I love em!

I normally would leave the links in however for the new forum I'm establishing I wanted them out. Its for a very small forum and needs to be as accessible as possible to people with intellectual disabilities.

This sounds most interesting! Perhaps you could tell me more (or point me to an appropriate thread or both!)

You obviously also need to rebuild the theme after applying changes.

The template system is written in HTML. You can wrap HTML in comments. So all you had to do, as a patch job, is to add
<!-- --> around the stuff you dont wanna show - so in the show.tmpl, just wrap HTML comments around the main thingymabob and then boom, it will be hidden for users.

The proper way to remove it though, is to remove all instances of {TEMPLATE: show_links} (search and replace all files).

However, removing stuff is permanent, adding a comment, is temporary, so you can undo it at a later time.
