Hello, I have several questions so hopefully it's ok to get it done in one go!

1) Is there a way to set the default display name to be the nickname? I found some php code online but none of them seem to work. I am sure most people don't want their First + Last name as default display name

2) In settings I was able to disable the viewing and search of members, is it possible to disable the hyperlink on the top navigation in forum so they actually can't click it? It just returns them with an error, and that's not ideal

3) Similarly, I disabled viewing of profiles, but click on the profile returns 404 - can I disable clicking on the profile in the first place, including users' own profile?

4) Maybe a long stretch - but can we embed using a shortcode the profile without actually going to the /forum page, but have it embedded on a completely different page?

5) I am trying to remove unnecessary aspects of the profile, such as social media:

class="wpf-field wpf-field-type-html wpf-field-name-html_soc_net "

I am unable to hide it with display:none  (I must be doing something wrong). Can you advise on how to write the code to hide that  I don't want, either through code or from backend? 

6) Where can I set custom error messages? These don't seem to be translated... 

7) Threaded layout - how can I set the default view to be expanded so people see all the forums?

8) Threaded layout - the searchbox from dropdown is incorrectly translated, where can I translate / change it?

Thanks!

Please disregard point 3 = solved

I am also using WpDiscuz - and it seems it's pulling gravatar profile image instead of the image set by WpForo for the forum. 

Is it possible to override gravatar and force the uploaded image instead? The uploaded image shows before posting, but once comment is posted it's the gravatar

Thanks

The default Display Name and the Nickname are as the username.

Uncheck Front - Can view members checkbox for an usergroup which you want to restrict to see members list or search them from Dashboard > Forums > Usergoups

3) Similarly, I disabled viewing of profiles, but click on the profile returns 404 - can I disable clicking on the profile in the first place, including users' own profile?

Insert the below CSS code in Custom CSS Code Field from Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles tab

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpf-author-name a, .author-name a, .wpf-spost-topic-recent-posts a, .wpforo-last-post-info a, .wpforo-topic-stat-lastpost a, .wpforo-topic-start-info.wpfcl-2 a, .wpforo-last-topic-user a, .wpforo-last-post-user a, wpforo-last-topic-info.wpfcl-2 a {
   pointer-events: none;
   cursor: default;
}

You can only create/change the menu for the members. Ar Dashboard > Appearance > Menus You can check all the menu shortcodes wpForo has.

To create a new menu with the shortcode just place it in the URL Field in Custom Link Tab.

#wpforo .wpf-tr.row-1 {

You can translate them From Dashboard > Forums > Phrases admin page

Use Expanded option for Threaded Layout - Forums List from Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Forums Tab

Thanks!

Thank you for your reply!! Some clarifying questions --

Uncheck Front - Can view members checkbox for an usergroup which you want to restrict to see members list or search them from Dashboard > Forums > Usergoups 

Yes, this is unchecked, but they get a "restricted" message, is it possible to completely remove the hyperlink for that usergroup? So they are not aware that it could be possible to view all members

I am looking to translate this: https://prnt.sc/1t8784r
Searching for it yields no results: https://prnt.sc/1t87bk8

Any thoughts?

All wpForo phrases you can at Dashboard > Forums > Phrases Admin Page

I have WP in different language, so front end is automatically translated but in Dashboard > Forums > Phrases , everything is shown in English, will this not create a problem with translations? 

Backend: https://prnt.sc/1t87q6h
Automatically translated front end: https://prnt.sc/1t87s27

Wouldn't WP try to translate my translation? 

Thanks!

You mean you are using a plugin which translates wpForo phrases?

Or you mean your site is Multi-Lang?
