View Full Version : Deleting columns?

13 Jul 2010, 01:13
Could someone please help me out here.

I want to delete the last two columns when viewing the forum listings, the Last Reply column, and the Thread / Post Count column

Would anyone know exactly which templates to edit, and approximately what code to remove?

Thanks in advance!

Has anyone else attempted something similar?

This is a discussion section for vB Design and Graphics, so he is trying to learn. One of the best ways to learn is to ask questions.


Try this and see if it works.

Find template: forumhome_forumbit_level2_post

Find and remove these lines of code:

<h4 class="nocss_label">{vb:rawphrase forum_statistics}:</h4>
<ul class="forumstats td">
<li>{vb:rawphrase threads}: {vb:raw forum.threadcount}</li>
<li>{vb:rawphrase posts}: {vb:raw forum.replycount}</li>
<div class="forumlastpost td">
<h4 class="lastpostlabel">{vb:rawphrase last_post}:</h4>
{vb:raw forum.lastpostinfo}
</div>To remove the "Last Post" in the forumhead try this.

Find template: forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost

Find and remove this line of code:
<span class="forumlastpost">{vb:rawphrase last_post}</span>If you run into to trouble then just revert the templates. As you can see the phrases are pretty simple to figure out. I just tried it quickly on a test site and it seemed to work.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot, that did the trick beautifully!

However, a small little hiccup for any others that might come across this thread and attempt the same. This will not work on forums that do not have a directory. Basically, if this option is checked "Act as Forum" to yes for any particular forum without it being inside a parent forum then the above modification will ignore it. So, you'll have to have all your forums in directories which all of my public ones were so it did not really affect me.

Once again, thank you!

Ah yes, you can still remove the same thing when the forum has no parent. Remove the same lines of code from:

forumhome_forumbit_level2_nopost & forumhome_forumbit_level1_post
