Hide Instant Messaging Info from Guests and Bots

Well... I recall a fancy way to hide contact info from visitors and bots, Iused to have it installed on my 3.6 styles, but now on vB 3.7 i siimply reverted everything to start overwith the new member templates.

I tried finding a "Can View Member Profile" config in the usergoups, but i can't seem tofind any, that's why I made a simple modification to a template, just to hide the instant messaging from regular visitors, and probably some email catching bots.

If you want to hide this, enter your Style Manager and find this template in the Member Info Templates group

Open memberinfo_block_contactinfo

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace it with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That's it, that might do the trick in a simple way.

Maybe this is useful for someone... or maybe you can tell me where to set those permissions :p

Thanks!

Usergroups >General Permissions> Can view member info. Yes/No

I have never allowed any guest/banned member/bot/spider to view member list/profiles/messaging and all that is needed is one standard setting,I have never seen any forum software that does not have this basic function available.

Oh... then it is standard and it hides everything from guests.

Now... my little mod will hide the contact info, but still let you see the user's profile page. :p

Thanks CareyCrew! :D
