Is it possible to mute "Info Center" for guests?

I'm looking for a setting to remove the Info Center for guests as I don't see the need to share that information for random lookie-loos. How can this be done?

Well, there isn't a setting for it you could always just force it for logged in users in BoardIndex.template.php

Like so:

if($context['user']['is_logged'])
{
  template_info_center();
}

Thanks. I like that idea but I couldn't find BoardIndex.template.php or template_info_center() anywhere. I expected to find template_info_center() someplace and then put the condition around it. I will admit that I'm sometimes dense about these things.

Should be in Themes/current_theme/BoardIndex.template.php
If your theme does not have a BoardIndex.template.php file, you can edit the one from the default theme in Themes/default

And to follow on from that you then upload it into the folder of your current theme and not the default if this ends up being the case.

Thanks to both of you.  I'm just using the default theme and your tips helped me better understand that how themes work.  (Found it strange that when I 'searched' all my files on my host that template_info_center(); never showed up but that's a different issue I'll figure out later.)

smf 2.0.18 default theme BoardIndex.template.php
search for
template_info_centeryou should have 2 instances
the one that you need to change
template_info_center();and then directly below that
function template_info_center()

skb

The way I did it was to add the last bit in red to the BoardIndex Template.php

Quote* Displays the info center
 */
function template_info_center()
{
 global $context, $options, $txt;

 if (empty($context['info_center']) || $context['user']['is_guest'])
 return;
