How can I remove the post date and user name from all topics associated with the news widget? Forum is phpbb2.



Thanks!

You can go to ACP>DISPLAY>TEMPLATES>PORTAL>NEWS

Delete a line that should look like this

Code:
<p class="author">{post_row.TIME} {BY} <strong>{post_row.POSTER}</strong></p>

Then it won't show there anymore after you save it and add it Wink

Do you have to be the founder to access that section? I'm not seeing it.
Also, does it matter if the news is displayed on the side of the forum rather than the portal or is it the same line of code either way?

Thanks again!

I believe you can try CSS

Code:
.module p.author{display:none !important;}

<td class="row2" height="24"><span class="gensmall"><img src="{ICON_TIME}" alt="" />{post_row.TIME} {BY} <b>{post_row.POSTER}</b></span></td>
