Aloha, how do we make it that a new user can have an apostrophe in their user name? Like "Mike's TD" as an example. The registration doesn't allow it and yet there is no advance notice to the left saying certain characters are not allowed. Also, as we try to grow it might be to our advantage to hide the member count for a while so that people can't see only a dozen people are members. Any help you can provide on these two topics would be welcome. Again 1) Allow apostrophes in user's name and 2) Temporarily hide member count in forum footer area. Mahalo!

Hi @starman71

1. wpForo uses WordPress functions, so it depends on WordPress not wpForo,

2. wpForo doesn't have option to hide forum members count in Forum Statistics, however you can use the below CSS to hide that part of Forum Statistics:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap #wpforo-stat-body .wpf-stat-item:last-child {
    display: none;
}

Many thanks. Is there a way to make the four remaining statistics categories centered within their display area? That removed members but now the remaining categories are no longer centered.

As for issue 1) do you think it would be good for wpForo to inform new users who are trying to enter their new user name at registration (by a notice to the left of the text field) that special characters are not allowed in a user's name?

@starman71,

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap #wpforo-stat-body .wpf-stat-item:last-child {
    display:none !important;
}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap #wpforo-stat-body .wpf-stat-item {
    border-left: 1px solid #E6E6E6;
}
#wpforo #wpforo-wrap #wpforo-stat-body .wpf-stat-data {
    display: flex;
    justify-content: center;
}

Go to Dashboard > Forums > Phrases, find Length must be between 3 characters and 15 characters. phrase edit it and set what you want to show.
