[Solved] Looking For A Wp-Foro Ninja
I am brand new on this forum and would like to know how I can get some customization done. I am not looking for anything very advanced or fancy and in fact, I am looking to strip down a lot of unnecessary options for my community.
- Disabling options like social networking links and mostly profile related options
- Changing forum font, colors and style to match with the main site
- CSS changes like spacing and stuff like that
- Optimizing plugin settings for fast loading and less bloat
- Configuring access options: Only registered users can see thread content and reply but CAN see post/thread title. No groups or special access rules.
I am on Cloudways with Digital Ocean 4GB RAM, 2CPU and 80 GB space server but looking to double the resources for a smooth ride.
I would really appreciate if the moderators can clarify as to what is the best way to do this. I simply do not want to reinvent the wheel.

Optimizing plugin settings for fast loading and less bloat
Please read the recommendations provided by Robert in this support topic: https://wpforo.com/community/faq/forum-is-slow/
Configuring access options: Only registered users can see thread content and reply but CAN see post/thread title. No groups or special access rules.
Please follow the steps below...
Step 1: Understand the wpForo usergroup system:
Step 2: wpForo forums have permission settings in Edit Forum screen. Edit the forum and use these settings to control Usergroup accesses and privileges in that forum. Each Usergroup has some Forum Access set in each forum. For example The Registered Usergroup ( Subscriber User Role) has Standard Forum Access by default in all forums. You just need to set Read Only forum access for Registered usergroup that forum. Then navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Dashboard and click on [Delete all caches] button.
Step 3: Understand the Forum Accesses. Forum Accesses are set of forum permissions. For example, you just selected "Read Only" access for Registered usergroup. You can find all permissions of Read Only access in Dashboard > Settings > Forum Access > Read Only (edit) screen. You can see that "Can create topic" and "Can post reply" permissions are disabled for this forum access. So your users with Registered Usergroup (Subscribers) will not be able to post create a topic or reply in that forum.
Thanks a gazillion for the detailed reply. I will go through them one by one and hope to get the forum style to my liking. Thanks a lot again!
