I'm sure someone knows how to do this?

Post by Michael Silvester » Sat Jun 03, 2006 6:40 am

Hi,

Is there anyway to stop the browser displaying the location of the forum and links in the bottom left hand side of the forum?

The reason I'd like to do this is because I'm hosting my forum on a subdomain and I only want the url in the address bar to show and not at the bottom.

Regards,

Michael Silvester

This really is not a phpBB support issue.

using any control-panel install/update is like shooting yourself in the foot. It won't kill you, but you're really going to hobble around until it heals.
Using the wrong tools (Front Page, DreamWeaver) gives the same results

You can try this...it totally disables any text from being displayed in the status bar.

<body onmouseover="window.status='';return true">

obviously it goes in the <body> tag

there are other ways if you dont like this one, try googling "no text in status bar"

put it in the <body> tag of overall_header.tpl in the templates file(s) ie: sub silver and/or whatever other templates you might have installed
