ok its just been bought to my attention that since ive done a import from vb the "about" box in personal details has the persons address in it and is on public view to everyone, can i use a bit of code in extra.css to remove the about box all together??

on a previous version of the dev site done by someone else this was removed, but this is a new import and is in view

as always your help is appreciated thanx

Using CSS will only hide it and it will still be possible to view it by using the browser tools.

I would recommend editing the template to remove it or comment it out.
The template is member_view.

These edit will make sure the location is visible only yo the profile owner and post/conversation owner.

They're not talking about the location field, they're talking about the 'About' field.

Remove this line from the member_view template:

Code:
<xen:if is="{$user.about}"><div class="baseHtml ugc">{xen:raw $user.aboutHtml}</div></xen:if>
