    Another few questions...

    == Where you have threads with the thread title- the users avatar is next to it - example


    is it possible to disable the avatars there? seems a bit to messy to me...

    == Also that thin line that seperates posts - can it be made fatter or a different colour independtly or is the colour linked to other items on te same page?

    == On ana ctual thread is avatar size customisable - i.e make it smaller?

    Very easy, go to:

    Style Properties > Discussion List > Discussion Starter Avatar

    Now change 'display: block;' to 'display: none;'

    Yes, also very easy, go to:

    Style Properties > Message Layout > Message Container

    Now change the color and width of Border - Top

    Appearance > Styles > *yourstyle* > Templates

    Search for template message_user_info

    In template find:

    <xen:avatar user="$user" size="m" />
    replace with:

    <xen:avatar user="$user" size="s" />
    If you want a different size, check this out: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/how-do-i-change-avatar-size.6817/#post-109103

    Remember, if you remove the avatar you're not going to see if you've posted in a thread unless you choose a new indicator.

    What do you mean?

    Presumably all an AVATAR shows is the thread starter. Anyone can refer back to threads they have posted in by looking at the 'watched threads', surely?

    Avatars or "mini-me" avatars are used to indicate if you have posted in a thread.

    ahh right, i see what you mean now, i had only started threads before so couldnt see.

    is there any way of disabling the avatars but perhaps have the threads you have posted on have a different colour strip/band so that they stand out?
