We have a number of forums that use jforum as their basis. Into these forums users occasionally post XML code. The default settings for smilies alter this content when viewed, making reviewing the XML difficult.
I know I can change the default character sequence for the smilies through which I would gain control over this problem, but I started looking for how we can control the default values for user settings and I can not find it (I want to set allow smiiles in this message to off/no by default, and set the same option to off/no in the user profile) . Specifically I want to change the settings for 'Allow Smilies' to no in all user profiles that exist (I think that is a database change), and all new users (that I cannot locate). Is there a place where the default settings for the various options are set by the administrator?
For example at the bottom of this post I see
Disable HTML in this message
Disable BB Code in this message
Disable smilies in this message
Where are the values for these settings for new users -- How does the administrator control what settings a user has when they are created? I think from that point forward the user's profile controls what happens in forum postings (or is there more control over them than that and the actual character sequence to image mappings settings)?
Thank you for your time!
