2 Questions regarding hiding the number of members you have

  1. Is it possible to remove the line in the footer of the forum which states how many "Members" there are?
  2. Also in the footer, is it possible to remove the "Most Users Ever Online" information?

Thanks so much for any help with this

Sure. Using 'default' theme in the example, go to your theme folder and open

sp-resources > forum-themes > default > templates > spFoot.php

If you scroll down to where it says 'start the stats section', you can see the template functions that display this information, and can remove whichever you like. It's probably best to comment out the functions rather than remove them, as it will be easier to put them back at a later date if you choose to.

Also, we always recommend making a custom or child theme to preserve the changes made.
