XF 1.1 User Identities PRIVACY - AIM Skype etc


Well-known member
I have the Members page accessible only to members and the profile pages too.
But as far as I can see that means a member has only 2 privacy options on their AIM Skype MSN Facebook etc
Either all members of the community can access those connections, or no one can.

Seems to me a lot of my members will not want to share these contacts so openly to all other members.
What would be the simplest way to restrict this part of their Profile info to say their selected Follows?

Really I think there needs to be Follows - which could be about practical information
AND a more personal category like Friends/ Chosen. (Priority Follows to show first on my Follows list, and my option to give them access to these contacts)

Thank you Brogan. That'll do for now :)

Can i set that as default?
I can see that raising problems for careless members or too trusting ones. My community is viewed as very 'safe' so members would be justified in being a little more trusting than usual on the net.

Yes, you can set it in the ACP Options for new members.

For existing members, to change it for everyone would require an SQL query:
UPDATE xf_user_privacy SET allow_view_profile = 'followed';
