  • Is it possible to have the user signatue to show up ONCE per page?

    Even if the user in question have posted say 4 times on the page.

    That would make it less annoying with longer posts to only appear once and you dont have to make people mad when you want ot limit their signatures.

    This is not a feature, sorry. I don't know if it could be done with conditionals, but somehow I doubt it.

        Actually, this can be done with conditionals.

        In the postbit template, find this conditional:
        HTML Code:
        <if condition="$post['signature']">
        And replace it with this one:
        HTML Code:
        <if condition="$post['signature'] AND !$vboptions['shownsigs'][$post[userid]] AND $vboptions['shownsigs'][$post[userid]] = true">
        This will cause each user's signature to be shown only on their first post on each page.

          Wow you got it! Thanks that is implemented and works well. VERY appreciated. Awesome job guys! Can I say that the users love the new Gamma!

          When will the Gooogle spiders be finding it? Also, it takes AGES to re dosimilar threads with 30 000 threads... Is there a way of specify which thread it should start on?

            Google finds - but forum links have been effectively devalued for PR - probably part of the LocalRank algo.

            But people can still find your content through searches.

                Any way to make this change retroactive to the Threads already in the database before the template change is added?

                  It automatically works on anything already in the database.

                  I just added this to my Postbit, and Postbit Legacy, because they are user selectable, and it works exactly the way I wanted it to.

                        Did you edit the correct postbit?

                        If the user information is on the top, you need to edit the postbit template.

                        If the user information is on the left, you need to edit the postbit_legacy template.
