Code (HTML)
Select All
<!-- Icon and access info start -->

<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="8">

I guess I've just spent a lot of time playing about and getting to know where things are - you'll soon pick it up as you go a long.

Select All
        <div style="float: left; width: 40%; text-align: left;">
        {yabb groupcolors}
        </div>

Of cause. It's all in Display.template still anyway:

So.. I would like to get rid of the title of the thread at the top of EACH post -- in this attachment, it's "Hello, I'm Ringo, help me finish my songs" -- (I want to keep it as the overall title of the thread, of course)  -- what is that called?

Find and remove this:

Code
Select All
            <b>{yabb subject}</b><br /> 


DMelanogaster wrote on Feb 21st, 2011 at 1:57am:
The other thing I want to get rid of is that icon in the lower right that is just to the left of that long number, and also I want to eliminate that number (in this case, it's 166.84.167.27).

Find and remove the highlighted:

Code
Select All
               <span class="small">{yabb ipimg} {yabb ip}<br />{yabb permalink} &nbsp;</span> 



DMelanogaster wrote on Feb 21st, 2011 at 1:57am:
And I also want to eliminate "the administrator" as a signature for all my posts. It's enough that it says Administrator on the upper left of my posts.

You don't need to remove anything in the code for this, just remove your signature in User CP => Profile => Options - Signature.

DMelanogaster wrote on Feb 21st, 2011 at 1:57am:
And I also want to eliminate "Back to top" on the bottom left.

Remove this:

Code
Select All
        <a href="#top">$display_txt{'643'}</a> 



Edited:
Oh...

That's just your displayed name - You can change it in User CP => Edit Profile - Displayed Name.

Wow, you have helped me so much with that! I have eliminated all kinds of stuff. I wonder if you could look at my latest attachment and tell me what the rest of the stuff I want to eliminate is called within the template file, so I don't go crazy and delete things that would be disastrous to get rid of??

So.. I would like to get rid of the title of the thread at the top of EACH post -- in this attachment, it's "Hello, I'm Ringo, help me finish my songs" -- (I want to keep it as the overall title of the thread, of course)  -- what is that called?

The other thing I want to get rid of is that icon in the lower right that is just to the left of that long number, and also I want to eliminate that number (in this case, it's 166.84.167.27).

And I also want to eliminate "the administrator" as a signature for all my posts. It's enough that it says Administrator on the upper left of my posts.

And I also want to eliminate "Back to top" on the bottom left.

Thank you for all your help! sorry if I'm supposed to know where to look for the instructions myself. I never seem to understand them.

Hi,

Some things you can't disable from the Admin Center, so you'll need to remove the tags from the template file - Display.template:    

Code
Select All
   {yabb userlink}
        <div class="small">
        {yabb memberinfo}<br />
        {yabb stars}
        {yabb useronline}<br />
        {yabb userpic}
        {yabb usertext}<br />
        {yabb postinfo}
        {yabb location}
        {yabb gender}
        {yabb ext_prof}
        {yabb isbuddy} 


It probably looks slightly different to your template, but you should see what I mean.
