Solved Members who 'hide'?

Post by Testicles_the_Greek on May 18th 2012, 6:39 pm

Is there a way to stop members being 'hidden' on the forum?

I have one or two that oddly log in hiding but never post? Evil or Very Mad

What do you mean?
You mean bots?

If you mean members:
Why should a member post? If you for example blocked a specific forum and they want to see it they could just make an account to see that forum.

Hi,

yes, indeed it is - however it's only possible via PunBB & PHPBB2.
You can do both disable it altogether through templates
or, un-hide users via their profile preferences in the admin panel, for all versions.

To disable via templates, for you PunBB:

Admin panel >> Display > Templates/Profile > Profile_Add_Body
In the search box, put in: Newsletter HIT SEARCH do not use Enter!!!!!!!!
You should now scroll down only 4 lines, and see this:

Code:
dt><label>{L_HIDE_USER}:</label></dt>
            <dd><label><input type="radio" name="hideonline" value="1" {HIDE_USER_YES} /><span class="cont">{L_YES}</span></label>
               <label><input type="radio" name="hideonline" value="0" {HIDE_USER_NO} /><span class="cont">{L_NO}</span></label>
            </dd>
         </dl>

Highlight, and remove it and Hit save, then hit publish Add
Viola, no-one else can go hidden, and now un-hide the current user via the above method.

Ape, it only appears in the profile if your friends with one another.
Hence when for example, Leeloo is online, you and I can see her, but new members don't.

Greek, your welcome Very Happy
Might make a tut for this Razz

It could be possible to be made moderator & admin only, I don't see why the currently supplied code in the templates wouldn't cover it, atleast for PunBB (Offhand, I'm certain) but for BB2, I'm fairly certain that it's not realistically possible.
I won't say for a fact, until I've started making the tutorial tomorrow.
