Solved Phpbb2 templates to fix signatures?

Post by Hypothalamus on October 6th 2010, 12:51 pm

Hey guys.

I am the administrator of a forum that runs with phpbb2. Some members got miffed at their signatures: Although they modified their signatures and their new posts after the change show the new signatures, the posts that were made before the change still show the old signatures.

I guess by editing an old post it will also show the new signature - but this is just a suggestion, I never tried it. If you ask me I think it's dumb to edit all the old posts just because they also are to show the new signatures. That's an imposition!

Therefore I'd really like to know whether I can fix this problem. Is it possible to modify some templates, thus the signature's properties will be changed so that older posts also show the new signature with every modifications I made?

PS: I hope you got what I was trying to explain. There are too much old and new signatures in my text I'm really sorry for if they cause some confusion. Embarassed

Thank you for the reply.

How about posts that were written without having a signature previously and don't show your signature when you activate one later?
