Why is there a quote button in posts visible to guests?

  • Also how to disable the report button for guests?

    Just remove the permission from the guests, it's called Can report content(just search it with the acp search) and change the permission for guests to `Never`.

    I don't know the answer for your first question, sorry.

  • But if posting for guests is disabled why is the quote button still there? I'm curious about its function/logic, but really I should just ask how to remove the quote button for guests.

    I found the setting for disabling the report button for guests; User Groups - Guests - General Permissions - User Profiles - can report content.

    There are 3 options "Yes" "No" and "Never". Choosing "No" did not remove the report button. Choosing "Never" did remove it.

    What is the purpose of the 3 options? Shouldn't "No" be enough?

  • I got an answer from the developer if someone's interested.


    We cannot reliably determine ahead of time, if guests may be able to create content in a different part of the site. The quote system is universal and allows you to insert quote in a various different places, including those provided by 3rd party plugins.
    There is no reliable way to remove the quotes in 3.0, other than editing the forum's template.

    To remove the quote button for guests:

    Edit the template threadPostList.tpl in the templates directory.

    Find line <li > class="jsQuoteMessage" ................</li>

    Insert in front of the line {if $__wcf->user->userID} and at the end of the line {/if}

    So it looks like this {if $__wcf->user->userID}<li > class="jsQuoteMessage" ................</li>{/if}

  • What do you mean by that?

    I don't think he intended to insult you, quite the opposite. It's a translation error. He probably meant to say, "please go here" or something similar. Remember this is a German site and there are many German members here speaking our language, we can't speak theirs, so you must give allowances for this.
