Solved Hide All Signatures for A Profile

Post by Guest on May 18th 2012, 12:14 am

Hello,

I have a member on my board that is annoyed by seeing the signatures of others. We were wondering if there is a way to "hide" all of them from him for his preference and profile alone. Others don't mind seeing the signatures, so it would need to be a feature that only would work for one profile.

If this isn't an option, just let me know.
Thank you for your time!

You could something like this in an announcement:

Code:

<script>
var username = '{USERNAME*}';
if(username == 'users name here') {
  document.write('<style>.signature_div{display:none}</style>');
}
</script>

Maybe the above script will work, or you could suggest making this option in the suggestions forum ;-).

Hi,

If the above script doesn't work, there's an option to disallow signatures via the profile preferences but the user can change it in their profile too.
You can alternatively, create a user-group for him, have it hidden, and disallow his group from having a signature at: Admin panel >> Users & Groups > user options Signatures = Allowed for groups.
Disallow his group, allow all others.
You may have to make a group for 'members' and set it to auto subscribe at 0 posts for everyone to use them, if you don't already have it.

Joph, affraid

I'm sorry, but this code did not work for me. Is it my forum type? I use phpbb2.

There is no option within one's profile that allows them to hide the signatures of others. There is only the option to remove your own signature from certain posts.
Disallowing a group to have signatures does not solve my problem either, as it would remove his signature, but not the signatures of others. He doesn't even have a sig--he just doesn't want to see everyone else's.

As this does not seem to be an available feature and LGforum's code does not seem to work for my board, I'll look to see if there is already a suggestion thread for it.

Thank you, all, for your help and replies.

Ah OK, now I understand, you don't want to hidde his signature, he wants to hide everyone else's signature.

I don't believe this is possible, however, LG, can you back me up? I haven't heard of any code that can do as such?

No i'd say it perfectly possible. All that needs to be done is a check if its them and then hide the signatures if it is, either with javascript or printing some css.

The code above could work, it will just need a bit of editing for phpbb2... but... I won't look at phpbb2.

I can't remember the author, but a while ago somebody wrote a script for toggling signatures, so you could shoose ti hide signatures or not, and it set a cookie to keep it set. Good idea, might do my own version.

Wouldn't the script be pretty much the same as the forum toggle code, but change a few divs and selectors?
I don't see why it wouldn't be too different, for atleast Pun, right?
