    I am running a private community and just discovered that user-avatars are visible to guests or at least to search-engines. Meaning the images are not hidden at all if somebody would knew the URL to the image.

    Is there a way to hide the images from the avatar-image-path like e.g. this:


    Appreciate youre help!

    hmmm... :confused:

    so when I change the settings in ACP at:

    ACP > User > Privacy Tab > View this user's profile page details:

    when I change the Privacy-settings from "All Visitors" towards "Members Only", the Avatar-image (via the image-path) is still visible by guests.

    This is not a great deal of Privacy :(

    Sorry, but XF lacks a bit in this area (n) ......... room for improvement.
