[Solved] Remove Ability To Quote
Please excuse me if this thread is not in the right forum, I'm new here and was unsure where this topic was best suited. The admins and mods can move it should they feel it is better suited somewhere else.
Anyway, I've installed the forum software and I'm loving it, for the first time my forums look like they're actually apart of my website rather than an addition to.
However, I hate the quotes, I want to know if there is an option where I can turn off quoting for my members.
The current quote system looks a mess. When people quote short text or a few sentences it's fine, when they quote large pieces of text it just look really messy.
I wish the quote system worked like Vanilla or XenForo's where it was expandable with a drop down if you want to read more but it's collapsed by default.
Since we don't have that yet and my members keep quoting large chunks of text, is it possible to remove the quote feature. I believe the tagging users is enough to reference what someone said before, at least until a better more visually appealing quote system is in place.
Anyone have any advice on how to do this?
I'd suggest you hide the quote button using CSS code. Below is the CSS code allows to hide it.
display: none !important;
You should add the code in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles > "Custom CSS Code" textarea.
Please don't forget to delete all caches and press CTRL+F5 on frontend before checking.
This is brilliant, thank you.
Hopefully in a future addition the quotes will be collapsable and expandable and I can remove this CSS.
It just doesn't work well / look good when people are quoting very long posts.
