Config option to 'promote' the whisper function mod

In a fresh install of v9.02, I noticed that the 'whisper' block was at the top of each message I posted.  I'm not a fan of private topics among a discussion, so I went into configuration and turned off the option to 'promote' whisper.

I then realized, even after clearing all caches, that it still showed up.

I fixed this with a few changes in In forum/pages/modules/topics.php.

Search for:

Code (php)


and replace it with:

Code (php)


After this change, the whisper box showed up on when replying to a post in accordance with the 'promote' configuration option.
