Removing 'Users' column & not downloading the avatar images



How can I remove / hide the users column in all the topic lists and while also preventing the browser from downloading the user avatars?

Hiding it via CSS is straight forwarding but it still downloads the images, although they are small, it still increases the number of requests.

P.S. I noticed we can modify the app.yml to add run > replace commands to preserve the changes across updates. Are there any resources to understand how discourse is structured so that I can find what to change and in which file? Or is building plugins a better way to do this?

You can do it simply via themes by overriding the topic-list-item template.


Thanks Vinoth!

Can we also use a plugin to override the existing template like this?

Yes you can do it via plugin too.
