    Is there a way to hide User of the Admin- and Moderatorgroups from the Memberlist?

    Thank you for your help.

    The member list is this: http://xenforo.com/community/members/

    It doesn't explicitly identify admin or moderators.

    Or are you talking about the Staff Online section in the sidebar on the homepage?

    i mean the memberlist from your link above. i would like to not display those users who are in the admin or moderator group. actually they are listed an flagged as administrator.

    The only thing that identifies them as staff is their user title.

    Are you saying that you don't want people's User Titles to display?


    Lawrence is a moderator of this forum, and his title there is XenMod thus revealing him as a moderator. Is that the bit you want to remove?

    For your example i would like to hide "Lawrence" completly from the list.

    Why would you want to do that?

    It might be possible, I'm just trying to understand why you would want to.

    because i have a specialised forum where the mods and admins should not be listed public.

    should they be really invisible?
    also not shown in newest members & top posters block?

    i've checked the code and it seems that you would need an add-on for this

    yes, they should be really invisible.

    I think this is a good idea for my forum too. Anyone with hints on how to achieve this?

    Yes this should definitely be added. If you read :

    It would be easier if we can hide the super admins from the memberlist and hidden from public (If there is a way please let us know!)

    I think it would be best if someone can create an addon to hide selected usergroups from memberlist.

    Actually disguising you admins/moderators would be the best way to hid them. Remember hiding in plain sight is the best.

    There are 100 other cases i would want to hide a userclass, like banned members for example.

    My reply was entirely to the OP and his usage.

    However, if there were an addon to hid members, I would definitively get it for other users, eg what you suggested.

    As i requested in my thread too, is there a way to have a button to sort the list in more than one way, eg button: "Sort by Posts" If I hit the button, posts are sorted by number of posts.

    It's possible with additional coding. But with both file and template edits it should really be an addon. You should post a request:
