There's not such an option in Forum Profile > Account Settings.

User emails are hidden in 2.1 by default, so you don't have to worry about hiding them, only you as an admin can see them.

Just to clarify, and I spent the better (worse?) parts of two hours going crazy about this...

There is NO such option in 2.1RC2. The hide_email column in table members was dropped. Emails are displayed only for your own profile or if you have moderator privileges.

are you sure about moderator? it should be for the user and admin only.

Pretty sure moderate_forum (moderate forum members) and up can do this.

From Load.php:

Code: [Select]
// These minimal values are always loaded
$memberContext[$user] = array(
'username' => $profile['member_name'],
'name' => $profile['real_name'],
'id' => $profile['id_member'],
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=profile;u=' . $profile['id_member'],
'link' => '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=profile;u=' . $profile['id_member'] . '" title="' . $txt['profile_of'] . ' ' . $profile['real_name'] . '" ' . (!empty($modSettings['onlineEnable']) ? 'class="pm_icon"' : '') . '>' . $profile['real_name'] . '</a>',
'email' => $profile['email_address'],
'show_email' => !$user_info['is_guest'] && ($user_info['id'] == $profile['id_member'] || allowedTo('moderate_forum')),
'registered' => empty($profile['date_registered']) ? $txt['not_applicable'] : timeformat($profile['date_registered']),
'registered_timestamp' => empty($profile['date_registered']) ? 0 : forum_time(true, $profile['date_registered']),

So yeah, like I said, people who can moderate forum members (they can already see things like IP addresses)

Just because it says “moderate forum” does not mean “forum moderators”, it’s long been confusing like that.
