Is there any way to disable message history for general forum posts?

While it is certainly useful for some scenarios, I would not like this in my general forum. One writes this and that, and then changes his or her mind, does some corrections and hopes that no one saw the original text. And then the Google Bot can show it to the whole world through the Messagehistory.ascx page. I will hack this page, if there is no other way to disable this. 🙂

The only way would be to disallow editing of postings. But you can not disable the Message History.

OK, thanx for this clarification!

And of course there is a way to disable the display - one just has to edit Messagehistory.ascx. Ultimately, a redirect can be done at the top. It is ugly, but it works. One can put up a static page, saying Message History is ... history.


<% this.Page.Response.Redirect ("http://cnn.com"); %>




Or you simply hide the history button
