Tutorial Force All User Postbit
poeja .

There are 2 postbit styles to choose from. The classic postbit has all the user details on the left of the post and the horizontal postbit shows the same information above the post. A lot of people have asked how to remove a postbit style or force it on users. You may want to do this to make sure everyone is seeing the same thing, because one postbit style works better with your theme than another, or you just don't like one of them. I'll give you how to force user postbit.

First, we'll delete the option for people to change their postbit style. To do this, go to ACP --> Templates & Style --> Templates --> **expand template set** --> User Control Panel Templates --> usercp_options.

search for this code:

Code:
<tr>
    <td valign="top" width="1"><input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" name="classicpostbit" id="classicpostbit" value="1" {$classicpostbitcheck} /></td>
    <td><span class="smalltext"><label for="classicpostbit">{$lang->show_classic_postbit}</label></span></td>
    </tr>

If you want to force the classic postbit, replace it with this:

Code:
<input type="hidden" name="classicpostbit" id="classicpostbit" value="1" />

If you want to force the horizontal postbit, replace it with this:

Code:
<input type="hidden" name="classicpostbit" id="classicpostbit" value="0" />

Now, when you go to User CP > Edit Option, you will notice the option to change your postbit style has gone. Next, we must force the postbit style we want.

If you want to put everybody on the classic postbit, run this query in PHPMyAdmin, or some other database manager:

PHP Code:
UPDATE `mybb_usersSET `classicpostbit` = '1' WHERE `classicpostbit` = '0' 

If you want to put everybody on the horizontal postbit, run this query in PHPMyAdmin, or some other database manager:

PHP Code:
UPDATE `mybb_usersSET `classicpostbit` = '0' WHERE `classicpostbit` = '1' 

Remember to make sure yout table prefix (mybb_ here) is correct.

Now, all your users will have your desired postbit style and will be unable to change it :) Also make sure that 'ACP > Configuration > Show Thread Options > Post Layout' is what you want to force, as this is what will be used by guests and new users.
