Hi

Am I seeing the forum statistics box at the bottom of my forum because I am admin?

(screenshot)

I don't want my members to see it - is there a way to remove it if it is visible to everyone?
I have searched the support documents but can't see where it is to disable it

Hi @hamlynn,

yes, you can hide the statistic section for regular members. You'll just need to navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Usergroup admin page, edit the usergroups and uncheck the "Can view statistic" Can/Permission.

Thanks!

Could you tell me which box I need to disable please?

I've also tried using this css (from the other thread) but it's still showing

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

The checkbox is shown in the screenshot below.

Please delete all caches and press CTRL+F5 on frontend before checking.

Neither of those worked.

Can you please help me with the CSS code.
I would like to keep the statistics box as it is useful to quickly see unread posts etc.
But I do not want people to be able to see who our newest member is.
I have entered this code

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

Into my CSS area and it has made no difference.
Why would that be?
It worked for the other person you gave it to?

Have you deleted the caches before checking?

Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Dashboard admin page, click on [Update Forums Statistic] and [Delete All Caches] buttons. If you have other cache plugins installed then delete those plugins caches a*s well. Then Press CTRL+F5 (twice) on the frontend to reload the updated CSS file.

Hi, have a look at this thread on the same issue we had encountered, which finally got resolved with the above code provided by @sofy. Needless to say, clear all caches, update user statistics, forum statistics, etc (Forum Maintenance).

We are using a cache plugin which clears the caches including CDN cache as well and have not faced any caching issues so far.

WP Rocket. You can also try Litespeed Cache or Swift Performance as well. However, you need to know how to configure these plugins properly otherwise they might break the site.

@sofy and @anonymous20 - Please correct me if I'm wrong

Warmest Regards
