  • Can you make everyone have the same signature

    Can you make everyone have the same signature without them being able to edit it? Just curious if there is a way to do this? If this is not possible, Is there a way to add something to every post that is made? I am trying to advertise some of my businesses that pay for the board and we have around 400-500 members on at all time. We had to turn off the signature option due to so many people advertising OTHER competing websites rather than helping ours. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can modify the postbit and postbit_legacy templates to include your own text below the signature variable. That way it is part of each post, and users can not edit this.

      So it is not a very difficult thing to change? If I show my programmer what you just posted, should he be able to change it without problems? Thanks!!

          This is great news! vB2 now supports conditionals like vB3! Such power and no need to upgrade! Thanks for the great tip Floris.

            No, it doesn't support conditionals.

            I am very sorry, but I overlooked that this was a version 2 question. Please ignore my previous post and allow me to correct myself and I will soon post a 'PROPER' reply.

            Again, my apologies.

              Admin Control Panel > Templates > Expand the group 'Postbit'

              Open the template 'Postbit' and find this code:

              Replace it with this code:

              <br>Your advertisement html goes here
              Save the postbit template.
