Is there any way to turn off the option for users to be hidden? Thanks.

There are registered users, hidden users and guests. In the user control panel members can choose to be hidden. I would like to remove that option.

ivan, allowing guests to be hidden is one of the features of Forumotion and in fact many other forums. This question has been asked before and as far as I aware, there is no option to turn it off and I am not sure why you would want to. You can enable all administrators & moderators to see the 'hidden' members when they are logged on. so that it is only regular members they are hidden from. Smile

I really don't want this to be a debate on the good and the bad of being hidden, I know I can see them. Call it a personal preference but I have found that over time hidden members rarely post and they often eventually cause some sort of problem. Look at it this way, why does a member need to be hidden?

Go to Administration Panel => Display => Templates => Profile => profile_add_body => Edit => Find:
Code:
   <tr>
      <td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_HIDE_USER} :</span></td>
      <td class="row2">
         <label class="gen"><input type="radio" name="hideonline" value="1" {HIDE_USER_YES} />{L_YES}</label>  
         <label class="gen"><input type="radio" name="hideonline" value="0" {HIDE_USER_NO} />{L_NO}</label>
      </td>
   </tr>
and remove. Save, then publish! Smile

Try by adding in Javascript management:
Code:
$(function(){
$('dd').has('label input[name="hideonline"]').remove();
)}

Ćao Ivane,

This will work for Invision:

Code:
$(function() {
    $('.box-content.profile.prefs fieldset').find('dl:eq(4)').remove();
});

Add it to AP > Modules > JS (All pages) and be sure to enable your JS first.

Excuse my coding ignorance but I haven't played with this option before, it does warn that I should be an expert at this.

I go to modules, then javascript codes management. Then I Enable Javascript code management.
Then create a new javascript.
It asks for a title, will any title do? Then do I just C&P the code provided by Nera into the Javascript code box? Sorry for being a newb.

Any title will do.

Just copy and paste (remove the numbers from the code: 1. , 2. , 3.)the code in the box. Make sure to check the box for All Pages.

There is a CSS code given to me by Sanket or Mr Mario a while ago (just before locking the topic because he thought it was solved -.-) that just made the option unclickable. Glad I found this topic, it was obvious there had to be a way. Very Happy I am on mobile right now, but when I am on computer I can find that code for you if the others don't work.
