  • Anyway to get rid of "Welcome to the Forums" message?

    Is there anyway to get rid of the "Welcome to the Forums... if this is your first visit... blah blah blah" message? I have looked under options and usergroup options and cannot find where I might be able to turn this feature off.

    Thanks for any help.

    You need to delete it from the FORUMHOME template. Remove this code:

    Code:
    <if condition="$show['guest']">
    <!-- guest welcome message -->
    <table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
    <tr>
    	<td class="tcat"><phrase 1="$vboptions[bbtitle]">$vbphrase[welcome_to_the_x]</phrase></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    	<td class="alt1">
    		<phrase 1="faq.php$session[sessionurl_q]" 2="register.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[first_visit_message]</phrase>
    	</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    <!-- / guest welcome message -->
    <br />
    </if>

        I was looking to do the same but the script that I was looking for is a little different that is shown in Waynes post.

        here is what I can find

        Code:
        <if condition="$show['guest']">
            <!-- guest welcome message -->
            <tr>
                <td class="tcat" colspan="<if condition="$vboptions['showmoderatorcolumn']">6<else />5</if>"><phrase 1="$vboptions[bbtitle]">$vbphrase[welcome_to_the_x]</phrase></td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td class="alt1" colspan="<if condition="$vboptions['showmoderatorcolumn']">6<else />5</if>">
                    <phrase 1="faq.php$session[sessionurl_q]" 2="register.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[first_visit_message]</phrase>
                </td>
            </tr>
            <!-- / guest welcome message -->
            
        </thead>
        </if>

        Is this what I have to remove?
