removing link to the user list (General)

I have installed forum 2.4.20 I would like to remove the ability for users to see all the registered
users.

some people use the same name on all there forum visits to different sites, this will add a simple way to add a bit more privacy.

You can do that by changing the program code and the template.

1.

Open
/themes/default/subtemplates/main.tpl

Search for
<li><a href="index.php?mode=user" title="{#user_area_link_title#}">{#user_area_link#}</a></li>

Remove it.

2.

Open
/includes/user.inc.php

Search for
case 'main':

Replace it by
case false:


Cheers. Flo.

Hello

I have installed forum 2.4.20 I would like to remove the ability for users to see all the registered users.

You can restrict the access to the user lsit to registered users on the settings page. With version 2.5 (not ready by now) we add the ability to restrict the access further to the forum team members (administrators and moderators).

Tschö, Auge
