Hi, After using wpforo for some time, I have recently added a second forum to my website (new forum page: https://authentic-self-empowerment.com/ase-supervision-group-forum/). Since this forum is specific to a certain group of users, I want to avoid that information about all users who ever registered on our website is being displayed publicly for this group of forum members.

In the example above it displays "Our newest member", but that member is not part of this specific forum and hence I would like to keep their profile information private.

Is this possible? I have looked at all the settings but could not find the right place to only show members who have registered for the above forum only.

Your assistance is very appreciated.

@janjan,

You just need to edit the certain usergroup of the specific forum, then uncheck the " Display on Members List".

The option is located in Dashboard > Forums > Usergroups admin page.

Thank you alvina, I have unchecked "Display on Members List" for both usergroups that have members in it but on the forum link in my original post, the information about "Our newest member" still displays. I have viewed the link in different browsers and devices. Screenshots attached.

I am also using wpForo on another website and on that site the steps that you suggested are producing the desired results.

Are you able to indicate further?

I have edited the Usergroup in Dashboard > Forums > Usergroup admin page and unchecked/disabled the following CAN‘s (permissions) plus all others (Front) that have to do with viewing:

  • Front – Can view members
  • Front – Can view profiles

On https://authentic-self-empowerment.com/ase-supervision-group-forum/ the newest member is still visible even if I am not logged in.

How come?

I would appreciate any other suggestions to resolve this issue.

Thank you.

@janjan,

Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Dashboard admin page and click on the "Delete All Caches" button and check again.

Also if you have some other cache plugin installed please delete those caches too before checking.

If the issue still exists please let us know.
