Member Profiles - Followed Members Only


Well-known member
In the Admin CMS > Options > User Registration > View this user's profile page details: Followed Members Only

I've set the setting as above, but everyone is still able to view all member's profiles and post on their walls, why?

Please let me know, thanks.

So I enter this into the SQL query box and hit go?

Do I need to label or bookmark it? And it says for all users? do I tick it?

If I ever want to disable or remove/delete this query, how would this be done?

It's a one shot event.

Just open phpMyAdmin, select the database, click on the SQL tab at the top, paste the query in and click Go.

Once done, it can't be undone.

Can you tell me where I can edit the term/phrase:

"This member limits who can view their profile"

I've looked around in the admin panel, but can't seem to find it...

Instead of creating a new thread, I thought I'd ask the following in here

Below is a copy and past of the Navigation template code for the members tab:

        <!-- members -->
        <xen:if is="{$tabs.members}">
            <li class="navTab members {xen:if $tabs.members.selected, 'selected', 'Popup PopupControl PopupClosed'}">

                <a href="{$tabs.members.href}" class="navLink">{$tabs.members.title}</a>
                <a href="{$tabs.members.href}" class="SplitCtrl" rel="Menu"></a>

                <div class="{xen:if {$tabs.members.selected}, 'tabLinks', 'Menu JsOnly tabMenu'}">
                    <div class="primaryContent menuHeader">
                        <div class="muted">{xen:phrase quick_links}</div>
                    <ul class="secondaryContent blockLinksList">
                    <xen:hook name="navigation_tabs_members">
                        <li><a href="{xen:link members}">{xen:phrase registered_members}</a></li>
                        <li><a href="{xen:link online}">{xen:phrase current_visitors}</a></li>
                        <li><a href="{xen:link recent-activity}">{xen:phrase recent_activity}</a></li>
I want to make this tab accessible to members signed in only.

The believe the code I need to make this happen is:

<ul class="secondaryContent blockLinksList">
I've tried entering it into the above menu coding, but each attempt messes up the navigation :confused:

Can you tell me where to insert it pls, if it is even the correct code?

Also by doing this - will it effect search engines/seo results ?
