XF 1.1 Hide members from autocomplete


Well-known member
For security measures I would like to remove admins from the autocomplete suggestion box that appears when users add other users to any field such as conversion recipients, members to follow, etc.


Security measures?
Why do you think this would help?

But, if you want to do it=> all the standard public xenforo username autocomplete fields get the data from XenForo_ControllerPublic_Member::actionFind

you would need to overwrite this, another way is to filter the user inside of the view object ( XenForo_ViewPublic_Member_Find )

Second option sounds nice, filtering from XenForo_ViewPublic_Member_Find.

How would I go about doing this.
