Couple of quick questions

Howdy Everyone!

Currently I am using mybb board and i have decided to move to vanilla forums. I have couple of quick questions.

1) How can i configure the forums in such a way that user can view the post but the hyperlinks mentioned can only be viewed in case he is logged in.
2) How can i add custom footer to the theme?
3) I run a android based community , so is there a way i can change the back round of the theme to a custom wallpaper ?

Thank You

    2) and 3) would be done through a custom theme.

    See the Wiki here: for how to get started on customising themes.

    Essentially, your theme will have a custom css file (to change colours/background etc.) (3) , and a custom master .tpl or .php file (2).

    Not sure about 1), but perhaps you could take a look at this plugin, which might give you an idea of how to go about it:

    This plugin might even be a better start:

  • The above pluign you can change the text it displays using DiscussionTeaserIntro locale

    the default is

    Welcome to %s. You are probably seeing this because a member wished share this discussion with you.</p>
    <p>This forum category is for private members. If you wish to apply you are welcome to <a href="%s" target="_blank">register</a>.</p>

    You can change the title DiscussionTeaserTitle the default is %s ... you want to include those %s as they are including variables. In this case the title of the discussion.

    grep is your friend.
