  • Killing unnecessary stuff at bottom of category-like page

    Hi all,

    Because I really like how parent forums look as opposed to using categories, I have this page:

    I want to kill all of the icon legends, admin options, etc. because what I'm really trying to do is use this as a category, so no one can ever post to it. I need a modified version of $forumdisplay, but if I try to copy and paste that into where it says $forumbits in $forumdisplay_forumslist, the results are disastrous.

    What's the safest way to kill these unnecessary items from forumdisplay_forumslist?

              Yes. All parent categories (Unit Specific, General Discussion, Community, pocketnow Content, Authorized Support Forums) that you see are set to:

              Act as a forum? No.
