    Can the users get an option to disable signatures? I really hate having to scroll past loads of crap, and 5 lines of text after a 2 word reply look silly.

    can the admin turn off sigs for all usergroups if we dont want to use sigs at all?

    You can set default registration settings in the ACP -> Users and Registration: Default Registration Values

    If you want to disable signatures completely then configure it in the usergroup permissions: Edit signature - set it to Default.

    ok, I may be wrong but I assume this will only effect new users on new boards

    I have imported a number of users from VB4, who had sigs in their profile and show up on xenforo, I dont want sigs to show at all but they still do even with the above settings in xenforo?

    The importer will import signatures regardless so you will need to manually remove them.
    You could do this with an SQL query by deleting the contents of xf_user_profile:signature for all members.

    ahh ok.. perhaps having a global "disable sigs" option would be handy, or the option not to import sigs.. would be better

    Edit signature: -

    "not set/no" - is the right one? Seems like "Never" would be blocking the use of signatures, no?

    Never will block it for all members who are in that user group.

    Not Set (No) will block it for all members, unless they are members of another user group which has it set to Allow.

    So you can override Not Set (No) using Allow, but you can't override Never.

    What would the SQL query be to remove all signatures?

    UPDATE xf_user_profile set signature = ''

    Error in SQL syntax. ;)

    I suspect you used " instead of '' (2 separate ').

    If you copy and paste the line in my post above it will work fine.
