On public forum page, one can see "our newest member". From privacy / GDPR viewpoint, this is has to be avoided

How can I remove this message from the public page?

Many thanks in advance!

Totally agree with you. It should be something that you could easily disable from a GDPR point of view. Same for who is currently online / viewing a topic (UPDATE: sweet - who is viewing a topic can be done via Settings > Forums tab > Display Forum Current Viewers).

With CSS you can hide the "our newest member" section via:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap #wpforo-stat-body .wpf-last-info p.wpf-stat-other span:nth-of-type(2) { display: none; }

Just tested this on the website/forum I'm currently building. That said, not including it from the backend would be the preferred solution of course. With the CSS code to hide it, it's still included in the page source.

Option 1

Option 2
.wpf-stat-other span:nth-child(1) {display:none!important;}

I will use the first option as we are starting up

Second option will be used once we get some numbers of users

Many thanks
