Using userscripts in phpBB-based forums

Post by Phobos531 » Tue Nov 15, 2016 10:32 am

Hello.

I hope this is the right section to ask the following question.

I'm a frequent visitor of a phpBB forum. There are some members of the community that I just can't stand. Unfortunately, I cannot use the "add foe" feature to hide their posts because some of annoying members are sadly admins and moderators. What can I do to mimic the "add foe" feature to be effective on staff team as well? Is there a userscript or sth similar that I can use?

Thanks in advance.

Are you an admin on the board? If not there's not much you can do unless you can persuade whoever runs the board to sort it out for you.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

Sadly, I'm not. I've heard about various styling extensions for web browsers so I thought that there might be a userscript that would provide a workaround for this issue of mine.

That's outside of the scope of this board unfortunately. You could ask at developer communities from the browser that you're using, but I doubt that something like this exist.

Here's a Greasemonkey script that should work for both phpBB 3.0.x and 3.1.x.

Use at your own risk. Hiding admin or moderator posts usually is not a good idea...

Yes, but the point is, but if he's not an admin with access to FTP there's nowt he can do.

No need to FTP any thing..
Greasemonkey is a Mozilla Firefox extension that allows users to install scripts that make on-the-fly changes to web page content after or before the page is loaded in the browser
