Hi, I'm trying to create a custom skin for askbot and I can't find out how I can disable the vote buttons and also the share ones. Is there any easy and clean way tp do it? Thanks.

Cedric, if you disable voting, there will be no way to determine which posts are good and which are not - voting is a very important feature. We will in the future support hidden user reputation system, as it is appropriate in some communities - so that user karma would be displayed or not by configuration.

Currently vote buttons cannot be disabled.

Sharing buttons settings can be found at or clicking on "Sharing content on social networks" in the settings part.

Doesn't seem possible to disable 'share via mail'? ie, i'd like to remove the entire line "Know someone who can answer? Share a link to this question via email." and i would think by disabling all share options this would happen, but i can't find how to disable the 'by mail' option.

I know, that line is pretty useless IMO, someone just copied it from stackexchange. We'll either remove it or add setting to turn it off.
