Edit or remove a member's signature

Service: Hoop.la

Hi!

Occasionally, members will create inappropriate signatures. The post content may be fine, but the signature violates our terms of service. I edit the posts after they have gone live and uncheck the Include Signature box. That doesn't prevent the customer from going back and turning on the signature again.

I would rather remove the signature from the member's profile or block that member's ability to create/display signatures.

How do I do that?

Thanks,

ST

Activity Stream

Hi ST! 

Using signatures in general is a permission item, so if this is a real problem, you could remove the ability to use sigs from "all members" and then perhaps add it back to only people who have a certain level of activity points, or who have been registered for a certain period of time.

You'd need to create a new circle for the "can have sigs" people.

Does that make sense?

Hi Rosemary,

I understand in principle, but when I try to create a new circle, I can't see where I can grant the ability to use a signature.

Please tell me how I do that.

Thanks,

ST

Step 1 is to create the new circle and give it a name. Then click the "permissions" tab, and then click "Update Your Permissions."

Click the "General" tab, and scroll down to Miscellaneous > Use Signature. Click the "update" link, and that will expand so you can unselect the Circles you don't want to have that permission.

Don't forget to click Update Settings when you're done.

Hi Rosemary,

I'm not seeing the options you described. I created circle Signatures Allowed

When I click General - there are no futher options.

What's (not) happening?

Thanks,

ST

The screen shot above was at the site level.

It took about a minute to load the options that aren't visible in the screenshot above. Here are the options at the group level. Nothing about signatures.

I didn't realize you were trying to do this at the Group level...that permission (Use Signatures) is only applied at the site level. However, since Group members are a subset of site members, you could theoretically still put the right people in the right Circle, just do it from the main cp "manage members" page.

Hi, ST:

It looks like you are still in the Group Control Panel, correct? As Rosemary said, you'd need to do that in the site control panel. Go to that permission in the main control panel, then click the "Update" button and mark the circles you want to be able to use the signature.
