First, if I display a custom field from the user's profile, does this respect their privacy settings? In other words, I do not want it to display if the member has disallowed it via his or her "View your details on your profile page" privacy settings. Or, do I need to use an additional conditional statement to make it respect those settings? I would actually prefer this, as that way, a member can choose if they want to make it public or not.
Second, I could still wrap the custom field in a conditional to prevent guests from seeing it, but I am thinking for privacy reasons, perhaps the member card itself could redirect to the login page if a guest member attempts to view it. Was there ever an option made to do this, or is it entirely up to us to do a template edit?
