I spend the whole day trying to do things which seems straight forward , but cannot find a suitable solution. Now I added a discussion board app, and I though that I will have regular list views found in SP lists where I can add/edit/delete list views. But seem inside the discussion board I will be dealing with filters inside a single view as follow:-

enter image description here

Where there are filters such as recent, my discussions, What’s hot , etc…

  • First question. I want to hide all the filters except the “Recent” & “My discussion”. So how I can do so ? From where I can access this ? I have an on-primise SP so I am open to all solutions?

  • Second question. Seems by default the discussion creator can select certain reply as the “Best Reply”, but our client ask to disable this. So I cannot find any option to disable this inside the list settings.. so how I can hide the “Best Reply” link ? Thanks in advance for any help and support..
