I have a membership website build on Wordpress using ARMember Plugin. I am also using WP Foro for a forum. wpForo 1.9.9. Both the website and forum are not supposed to be visible to non-members. The problem that I have is that when non-members are searching the name of my website on Google, they can literally see the profiles of wpForo users. This is a major issue. How can I fix this?

Hi there,

I guess you can do that through settings > access. there you can edit what guest users can and cant do. suppose if you don't want them to see the forum, there is an option for that.

Hi @forum188,

Disable "Enable User Profile Page indexing" button from Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features Tab and you need to Ask Google to recrawl your URLs, check link below:
