Hello, I would like to know how to disable the members search option in the forum.. I do not want guests or a particular usergroup to be able to search for members. I believe this enables fast growth of my forum. As a guest leaves the forum immediately when they notice there is not much users from there surroundings.


Second Question, How do i disable the forum static below the forum? I do not want users to see the total number of members on the site. Until I at least build my forum up to a reasonable amount of members.

How do i fix this?

Hi orgynaija,

Please navigate to Forums > Usergroups, edit the usergroups and uncheck "Can View Members" and "Can View Profiles" CANs/permissions:

In the same, page you can also disable forum statistic, just uncheck the "Can view statistic" permission.
