I don’t want my users to see my board in anything but subS

Post by Dzien Dobry »

The user Profile offers several choices for Board Style. I don’t want my users to see my board in anything but subSilver. Is it easy for a forum administrator to eliminate all the other choices?

Admin Panel -> "General Admin" -> Configuration...

Enable "Override user style".

You can also remove any extra styles by going

"Styles Admin" -> Management...

and deleting all the other styles except subSilver.

Hmmmmm, none of my other styles seem to work anyway. I had a member who tried to use their preffered style, but they kept getting this error message:
phpBB : Critical Error

Couldn't open PSO template config file

So now, i've overridden users own choice. Why was this happening? Do i have to get the other styles/themes from somewhere :?:
I like work, it fascinates me

The files for the other styles don't exist. There have been countless topics about this. Go into the style manager and delete all of the PSO styles, and no one else will run into this problem. 8)

I have no idea why you would deprive you're users of PSO's Euclid theme. It is offered as a "user choice". If I came to a board where the admin prevents me from enjoying the web as I like to, I simply move onto my next point of interest on the next web site (This is just my personal preference).

The option to override user theme is there in the Administration section. I still have no idea why you would want to override user themes.

it's worth bearing mind though, that the webmaster of the site where the board is located, has likely spend many hours planning his or her design and worked hard to get it looking the way they want it to. Surely it's up to them how their site looks or is presented.
