I don't want to include this in my other 'General Support' thread as its an entirely different question. Yes I have tried scouring this forum for a solution but couldn't find any, these are fresh queries that haven't been asked before, so any answers provided will also hopefully guide other people who stumble across this thread in the search


Nonetheless these are minor questions (nothing too complicated):


1) Is there any way to disabled the orange 'New Thread' sticky tabs that appear for registered users when there's a topic they haven't read - it says 'New' and its an orange tab?


At the moment if I register as a new member to test out my forum, the whole forum is full of these orange tabs saying 'New' on each board and sub-board. I want the default for them not to appear, and new users can turn them later if they prefer to have them

2) Is there any way to disable the 'Message Icon' dropdown option in 'Start new topic' ?

I want to disable this for registered users not myself as Admin,  I want to remove it for everyone else as I don't want to end up with a messy looking forum where people use different message icons for their threads



Thanks again for your help and prompt responses !

1. No way to do it. The closest you could do is replace the image with a single pixel image for the new.gif graphic under manage style customize images. But that will hide new icons for all.

2. I don't believe so.

Once again, thanks for the prompt response. But surely that can't be correct, as this forum (the Support Forum) also uses the same formatting code/language as all Createaforum forums, so surely there MUST be a way you can turn this setting off... !!!


After all, newly registered users on here DON'T get the same 'New' orange sticky/label/tab on every single thread they haven't read...


So please can you clarify what I have to do to turn this off?

I am not sure. Unless you clicked mark all read on this forum that would remove it.

No, I didn't change any settings or anything on this forum, so the 'new' labels were not there from the start.


Anyway how would I click 'mark all read'? Can you show me where this setting is please so I can try toggle on and off on my forum to see if that fixes it?


Many Thanks

UPDATE:
Just in case others are reading this with the same problem and wondering what happened in the end...


Well I just realized I AM in fact getting these Orange 'New' stickies even on this forum on  threads which I haven't read


(Somehow I managed to ignore them)


So the CreateAForum guy responding on this thread was correct...There seems to be no way to disable this feature for registered users...


I will try to find the 'Mark All Read' button and inform my forum users to disable the 'New' sticky this way (if they find it particularly annoying... but I didn't even notice... so I suppose it can't be that annoying...)


Thanks again
