      That option is only in vB3. He is running vB2.

      To remove the Moderator column in vB2 requires a lot of template changes. Go to your:

      Admin CP -> Templates -> Modify -> [expand list] -> Forum Home Page Templates -> forumhome

      Find this code and remove the red code:

      Code:
      <!-- main -->
      <table cellpadding="{tableouterborderwidth}" cellspacing="0" border="0" bgcolor="{tablebordercolor}" {tableouterextra} width="{contenttablewidth}" align="center"><tr><td>
      <table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="{tableinnerborderwidth}" border="0" {tableinnerextra} width="100%">
      <tr align="center">
        <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}"><smallfont>&nbsp;</smallfont></td>
        <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}" width="80%" align="left"><smallfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><b>Forum</b></smallfont></td>
        <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}"><smallfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><b>Posts</b></smallfont></td>
        <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}"><smallfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><b>Threads</b></smallfont></td>
        <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}" nowrap><smallfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><b>Last Post</b></smallfont></td>
        <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}" width="20%"><smallfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><b>Moderator</b></smallfont></td>
      </tr>
      $forumbits
      $loggedinusers
      $birthdaybits
      $pminfo
      </table>
      </td></tr></table>
      <!-- /main -->
      Then in your forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost template, make the change in red:

      Code:
      <tr id="cat">
      	<td bgcolor="{categorybackcolor}" colspan="5"><a href="forumdisplay.php?s=$session[sessionhash]&forumid=$forum[forumid]"><normalfont color="{categoryfontcolor}"><b>$forum[title]</b></normalfont></a>
      	<br><smallfont color="{categoryfontcolor}">$forum[description]</smallfont></td>
      </tr>
      Then in your forumhome_forumbit_level1_post template, remove the red code:

      Code:
      <tr align="center">
      	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}" colspan="2" align="left">
      	<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr>
      		<td valign="top"><img src="{imagesfolder}/$forum[onoff].gif" border="0" alt=""></td>
      		<td><img src="{imagesfolder}/clear.gif" width="9" height="0" border="0" alt=""></td>
      		<td><a href="forumdisplay.php?s=$session[sessionhash]&forumid=$forum[forumid]"><normalfont><b>$forum[title]</b></normalfont></a>
      		<br><smallfont>$forum[description]</smallfont></td>
      	</tr></table>
      	</td>
      	<td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><normalfont>$forum[replycount]</normalfont></td>
      	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><normalfont>$forum[threadcount]</normalfont></td>
      	<td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><smallfont>$forum[lastpostinfo]</smallfont></td>
      	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><smallfont>$forum[moderators]</smallfont></td>
      </tr>
      Then in your forumhome_forumbit_level2_nopost template, make the change in red:

      Code:
      <tr id="cat">
        <td bgcolor="{categorybackcolor}"><smallfont>&nbsp;</smallfont></td>
        <td bgcolor="{categorybackcolor}" colspan="4">
         <a href="forumdisplay.php?s=$session[sessionhash]&forumid=$forum[forumid]"><normalfont color="{categoryfontcolor}"><b>$forum[title]</b></normalfont></a>
         <br><smallfont color="{categoryfontcolor}">$forum[description]</smallfont></td>
      </tr>
      Then in your forumhome_forumbit_level2_post template, remove the red code:

      Code:
      <tr align="center">
      	<td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}" valign="top"><img src="{imagesfolder}/$forum[onoff].gif" border="0" alt=""></td>
      	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}" align="left"><a href="forumdisplay.php?s=$session[sessionhash]&forumid=$forum[forumid]"><normalfont><b>$forum[title]</b></normalfont></a>
      	<br><smallfont>$forum[description]</smallfont></td>
      	<td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><normalfont>$forum[replycount]</normalfont></td>
      	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><normalfont>$forum[threadcount]</normalfont></td>
      	<td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><smallfont>$forum[lastpostinfo]</smallfont></td>
      	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><smallfont>$forum[moderators]</smallfont></td>
      </tr>
      Then in your forumhome_loggedinusers template, make the changes in red:

      Code:
      <tr id="cat">
      	<td bgcolor="{categorybackcolor}" colspan="5"><a href="online.php?s=$session[sessionhash]"><normalfont color="{categoryfontcolor}"><b>Currently Active Users</b></normalfont></a><normalfont color="{categoryfontcolor}"><b>: $totalonline</b></normalfont></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
      	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}" colspan="5"><smallfont>
      	<nobr>There are currently  $numberregistered members and $numberguest guests on the boards.</nobr> |
      	<nobr>Most users ever online was $recordusers on $recorddate at $recordtime.</nobr><br>
      	$activeusers</smallfont></td>
      </tr>
      Then in your forumhome_birthdaybit template, make the change in red:

      Code:
      <tr>
      	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}" colspan="5"><smallfont>
      	Today's Birthdays: $birthdays</smallfont></td>
      </tr>
      Then in your forumhome_pmloggedin template, make the changes in red:

      Code:
      <tr id="cat">
      	<td bgcolor="{categorybackcolor}" colspan="5"><a href="private.php?s=$session[sessionhash]" title="Click Here to Open Your Private Messages $inboxname"><normalfont color="{categoryfontcolor}"><b>Private Messages</normalfont></b></a></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
      	<td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}" align="center" valign="top"><img src="{imagesfolder}/$lightbulb.gif" alt=""></td>
      	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}" colspan="4"><smallfont>
      	<b>$bbuserinfo[username]</b> - You have $newpm[messages] new message(s) since your last visit.<br>
      	(You have $unreadpm[messages] unread messages and $allpm[messages] total messages in all your folders.)</smallfont></td>
      </tr>

        Jake, thank you so much for taking the time to put that together. I've been wanting to get rid of the moderator column for some time now and finally got the courage with your excellent instructions. The only thing to add....I think in the first box where you take out the moderator row you also need to change the 80% to 100% since the mod row took up 20%. Also, if anyone has subforums (like I do) you need to do all these changes to the forumdisplay_forumlist and level1_post, no post, level2_post, no post templates as well if you want to remove the mod column from your subforums.

        Again, thanks for posting that....it was very helpful to me!

          Removing

          When removing the moderator column can it be replaced by a team like vb team with a link to the fourm leaders/super moderatos this would help to get rid of all the mods in the fourm home page and just show the team ?

            Yes. Instead of following my instructions, just edit the forumhome_forumbit_level1_post template. Replace the red code:

            Code:
            <tr align="center">
            	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}" colspan="2" align="left">
            	<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr>
            		<td valign="top"><img src="{imagesfolder}/$forum[onoff].gif" border="0" alt=""></td>
            		<td><img src="{imagesfolder}/clear.gif" width="9" height="0" border="0" alt=""></td>
            		<td><a href="forumdisplay.php?s=$session[sessionhash]&forumid=$forum[forumid]"><normalfont><b>$forum[title]</b></normalfont></a>
            		<br><smallfont>$forum[description]</smallfont></td>
            	</tr></table>
            	</td>
            	<td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><normalfont>$forum[replycount]</normalfont></td>
            	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><normalfont>$forum[threadcount]</normalfont></td>
            	<td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><smallfont>$forum[lastpostinfo]</smallfont></td>
            	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><smallfont>$forum[moderators]</smallfont></td>
            </tr>
            ...with the blue code:

            Code:
            <tr align="center">
            	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}" colspan="2" align="left">
            	<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr>
            		<td valign="top"><img src="{imagesfolder}/$forum[onoff].gif" border="0" alt=""></td>
            		<td><img src="{imagesfolder}/clear.gif" width="9" height="0" border="0" alt=""></td>
            		<td><a href="forumdisplay.php?s=$session[sessionhash]&forumid=$forum[forumid]"><normalfont><b>$forum[title]</b></normalfont></a>
            		<br><smallfont>$forum[description]</smallfont></td>
            	</tr></table>
            	</td>
            	<td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><normalfont>$forum[replycount]</normalfont></td>
            	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><normalfont>$forum[threadcount]</normalfont></td>
            	<td bgcolor="{secondaltcolor}"><smallfont>$forum[lastpostinfo]</smallfont></td>
            	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><smallfont><a href="showgroups.php">vB Team</a></smallfont></td>
            </tr>
            Make a similar change to the forumhome_forumbit_level2_post template.
