Private Profile
If you need to report a bug, please do so on GitHub!

This mod allows users to hide their profile (make it private).


  • Users can make their profile private at Profile > Modify Profile > Account Settings.
  • Permissions can be changed at Admin > Members > Permissions.
  • Settings for this mod can be changed at Admin > Configuration > Modification Settings.

How to install:
The Package Manager should work in most cases.

Languages:
- English

Features:
- Allows users to hide their profile.
- The mod can override various permissions to gain access to previously unavailable profiles; can be disabled and is disabled by default.
- The mod uses permissions to allow members to change their visibility settings; if they are not able to do so, the mod shows them the current setting applied to their profile.

Idea List:
- Make mod smarter depending on the forum settings (only show hide for guests option when guests can view profile etc.)

Changelog:
v0.3.2:
! Fixed critical bug (I thought I fixed that...)

v0.3.1:
! Bug fixed

v0.3:
+ Added "Only to buddies"
+ Added new settings, for both admins and users
+ Added reset switches

v0.2.1:
! Fixed a bug which randomly occured.

v0.2:
+ Added options to only show to guests or members, or to show to nobody but myself.
+ Added permissions.
+ Added setting to choose whether Private Profile is allowed to override profile permissions.

v0.1:
- Initial release

Nice mod! :)

Is there a way to open your profile to buddies only?

Ok, thanks Yoshi :)

Another note: make it 'everyone' on default (instead of 'nobody but myself') :)

Ah! When I go to Profile > Modify profile > Account settings it says: Allow my profile to be viewed by 'Nobody but me' without changing it. :)

Cool idea, I would suggest the same:

Weird, it is made to set that to Members only by default... However I can make a query for you which changes this for all members, if you want.

And thanks 4Kstore :)

Rain Forest

Thanks! :)

EDIT: Reset the visibility settings of *ALL* members to Only works once..
I wanted to check if this works, set the permission to 'buddies only', which worked, and set it back to 'members only' but it failed. Also after Empty the file cache.. :'(

Another request: when a member set his permission to: 'buddies only' and a random member click on their profile it says:
QuoteThis profile is made private by the owner, therefore you can't view it.

Maybe it's better to let this message say:
QuoteThis profile is only visible for buddies only, become buddies to see his/her profile.

Is there anything in your error log?

And as soon as I get on my laptop I'll write that text change up for you, though I don't feel it is needed in the core.

Private profile does not touch that file ;)

I'll have to dig into this. It should work just fine (and it did for me...)

It was an old bug, I never cleared the error log :P it's gone now :)

But I still have the 'change' error of this mod

Check if version 0.3.1 works for you :)

It does but sometimes when I click on my profile (tested as admin and as a test-user) it says:

Wrong value type sent to the database. Array of integers expected. (users)

I'd further rephrase it to avoid the tautology of "only" and "profile" ;)

QuoteThis member's profile can only be viewed if you become his or her buddy.

NanoSector

Okay. For that, in Sources/Profile.php, find:
// Otherwise we simply can't view this profile.
elseif (!$can_view)
fatal_lang_error('pp_cant_view', false);


Replace that with:
// Otherwise we simply can't view this profile.
elseif (!$can_view && $cur_profile['profile_private'] == 'buddies')
fatal_lang_error('pp_cant_view_buddies', false);
elseif (!$can_view)
fatal_lang_error('pp_cant_view', false);


Then, in Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php, find:

$txt['pp_cant_view'] = 'This profile is made private by the owner, therefore you can\'t view it.';


Add after:

$txt['pp_cant_view_buddies'] = 'The profile of this member can only be viewed if you become his or her buddy.';


If you want you can replace the text.
