If I 'exclude' my profile of "Forums" that is a profile I own and that is used only for housing all my site's discussion forums...will that effect the ability for all my members to keep seeing and using the forums owned by that profile? Will it effect my site's forum function in any way?... Is this simply to remove the profile and avatar of the "Forums" member from appearing, say when you go to mysite/profile page for example?
Thanks for any clarifications in layman's terms. I'm still not quite sure exactly what "Lists" are for instance. :-*
The profile will still be usable just like normal. This module will exclude the the profile's items from showing up in jrCore_list calls for skin templates. So let's say on the front page of your site there is a list for "top profiles". The profile would not show there. It would also not show in the profile index list at yoursite.com/profile. Basically lists are "lists" that are on skin templates (i.e. NOT profile pages).
Ok, so I guess I'll try it and see what happens. Nothing should blow up, right? Thanks!
Ok so it works nicely!
Now when signed in as a regular member, I go to the site /profile page and "Forums" member is not showing. It does show if I am signed in as admin, as it's supposed to. It also still shows up (as expected) if one does a search for the name "Forums".
Thanks, this is cool! It was a bit annoying to see the "Forums" profile showing up in the member list, like they were another regular human member.
brian:Right on - that's what it was made for, so glad to see it's working for you.
