Option to set max/min characters number in topic/post editor

Can we override this limit for certain users (i.e. admin)? Or can enable them only for specific user groups?

@envi,

I'm sorry but those are removed from user activity in this version. We're improving user profile pages so all will be totally changed soon and the icons will be back too.

Thank you wpForo Support Team and GVectors for ALWAYS improving wpForo and for continuing to provide the MOST EXCELLENT Support that any WP plugin has yet to beat!

I am going to be building our wpForo Forum #3 with this latest version very soon! I've learned a lot from you guys! SO VERY HAPPY with Forum #1 and #2! I always promote wpForo and hope that you continue to thrive and enjoy what you do! 🙂

God bless you and your Support Team and your families - Robert, Sofy, Martin, and Blackraz! You all ROCK!

P.S. If I may suggest - please place a DONATE button here on this Support Forum - so Satisfied Users can donate something, like buy you guys coffee or pizza or lunch, or just something, anything! 🙂 (Especially those who have already rated you 5 stars on WordPress!).

P.P.S. Or put your Support Team mailing address so we can ship stuff to you! 🙂 You deserve the best because you help out people, even if they are sometimes "grouchy", you still help! And you continue to improve wpForo consistently! Salute! Kudos! and THANK YOU! 🙂

I'm just a member here who used to be a newbie.

The case: When I actually put my keyboard where my forum is, and became #172. Can you imagine if you had to build this forum yourself? How kind and patient will you be? The best way to say thank you is say it, write it, and then head on over at Wordpress plugin page and rate wpForo 5 stars - by clicking here.

Sorry to hear this. Will the icons be back in the next version?

I use the forum in a specific way and I can't use it without this functionality. So I reverted it to version 1.6.1 and now I have to wait for the version which will recover the icons in user activity.

Hi @envi,

This is a bad idea. We strongly don't recommend downgrade. If this icon is so important for you, please ask for patch or some code to change it but don't downgrade whole plugin because of this. Please update it back, then use Plugin File editor or cPanle > File Manager. 

Open: wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-themes/classic/profile-activity.php file.

Find this line:

<td class="activity-icon"><?php wpforo_topic_icon( $activity['topicid'], 'base' ); ?></td>

Change to this:

<td class="activity-icon"><?php wpforo_topic_icon( $activity['topicid'], 'mixed' ); ?></td>

Thank you for the code, @robert! It's what I need.

I notice something else now.
After the update, the speed of the forum page on mobile is slower.
The Google PageSpeed Insights mobile score before the update was: ~57.
After the update is: ~36.

Not enough information to follow your problem. If you can provide more details please open a separate support topic. We just tested and don't find any issue with speed. This is probably site specific issue.
