Mute avatar in specific boards

Jump to solution

Without doing a lot of css changes, is there a fairly simple way to mute avatars so they don't display in a specific forum?   We have a forum that's used mostly by one person to make announcements and since that's the only content, they wanted to know if we could mute their avatar just in that forum.  Thanks in advance.

There is no Out of Box way to achieve this. You must need some customisation for this.

@kgroneman - However, doing this with CSS you can achieve this using Freemarker logics. 

 

You will need to create a custom component for user avatar and include the OOB avatar component. Where you can right condition if coreNode.id == "board-id" than do not include the OOB component. 

 

Also, you will need to replace the OOB avatar component from ForumMessage quilt with the custom component which we have created. 

 

Let me know if this helps or you need some information.

Thanks. I'll ask how important this is and try this if it's determined to be an important issue.

If you only want to remove the avatar on the Forum Board Page then you could also look at a custom ForumPage layout which you can change in Community Admin -> Content -> Custom Pages -> Forum Page just for this node. in that layout you could use a message list which doesn't show author avatars.

 

This approach won't work down to ForumTopicPage though.

Correct, however, I believe avatar must be visible on forum topic page which is coming from ForumMessage quilt. For which @kgroneman must need to make some customization there as well.
