if some user just put in the location field: "my home, hahaha"
The link in the member card will be a link inviting to abandon the forum and visit google maps and see:
https://www.google.com/maps/search/my+home+hahahaha/@31.755702,-95.740118,5z/data=!3m1!4b1
myhome.png
I think is really useless, would be great at least make it optional.
now is hard get rid that href in a simple way. seem is necessary 1 addon to remove that href.
Would be great make it easy.
Thanks.

here a provisional solution, thanks @Optic and Chris D
I'm currently using this CSS that @Chris D posted here:
https://xenforo.com/community/threads/content-without-template.81697/#post-816392
Seems to work well. :) Add this to EXTRA.CSS:
Code:
.userBlurb a.concealed
{
pointer-events: none;
}

It's fluff I'd like to see optional. As location can influence the advice given on our forums we have location as a required filed on registration now & encourage legacy members to update their profiles. Some folks legit descriptions point to company locations with same/similar name. There are also some folk that don't understand that it's a simple link based on the location typed & not something more sinister like personal data sharing. Believe me - I've had the conversation!

I believe we implemented this a while ago. I think roughly around the time of our GDPR compliant releases, so approximately a year ago.

You simply empty the maps URL field in the "External service providers" option group.
