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 !


Hi there

Bit complicated to explain without screenshots but I will try my best:

On my forum I have set permissions/access for 'Regular members' to zero and unticked all checkboxes apart from a few (thus most boards on the forum appear invisible for a newly-registered member)

I've also added membergroups - 'Male' 'Female' and 'Child' - which are unrestricted/open access. The option to join 'Male' 'Female' or 'Child' is set at registration

So if someone mistakenly registers without joining a group - they get quite a shock as the forum appears empty !!! This is exactly how I want it - once they have got over the shock they'll read the small print that says they can only use the forum fully if they join a membergroup

The problem arises if someone messes around and switches back to 'Regular Member' after joining their chosen membergroup - the permissions of the other membergroup (Male, Female, Child) seem to cross over into 'Regular Member' so instead of the forum appearing blank once again, the user can see all boards like normal

To explain it succinctly:
Being a 'Regular Member' = all boards are hidden (ohhh nooooo!!)
Join a membergroup 'Male/Female/Child' = you can now view boards (oh what a relief !!!)
Be naughty and switch back to 'Regular Member' = you can still view boards like normal (hehehehe...)

As long as you remain part of the second membergroup (Male/Female/Child) and don't leave it, making 'Regular Member' the primary group makes no difference and you can carry using on the forum unrestricted
Is there any way to change this so the person switching back to registered member has restricted access once again ???

Many thanks !!

It has to be in the first message in the topic to get picked up.

I am not sure how to do this. Can you explain in simple steps...If you go to my forum
Under "General Discussions About Beaumont"
One of the members managed to put a picture by the topic. I can not get that same result. I can see he has attached an image to the post but when I do the same it does not appear next to the topic.

That is not something we have built in. It would have to be built.
