All questions related to wpForo and wpDiscuz free plugins should be asked in the corresponding plugin support forum:
User Group and User Groups Secondary
Is there any way to get this functionality back. It used to work before the latest version. I just realized that Secondary Groups is also displayed on the top area above the User Profile next to their Avatar.
I had a private group name as a Secondary Group name and now everyone can see who is part of that private group which is a problem for the recruiter that I'm working with. You can also do a Google search against my site for that private name and all member pages appear.
The ability to hide a field on a page used to be part of the Custom Fields add-on and an important part that I relied on, especially when it comes to collecting private information and storing it on the member records. Now I can't manage that data without temporarily adding the fields, changing the data, then removing the fields which is really cumbersome and a temporary security hole every time I do it (which is daily).
If this functionality can't be added back, I'm going to have to look for another user custom field plugin which defeats the whole purpose of why I got this wpForo Custom Fields plugin in the first place. It would be much nicer to manage all the fields within wpForo, but I won't have a choice if they can't be protected and still be easily edited by me the admin.
Can this field visibility functionality be added back?
I'm still really struggling with this. My experience with wpForo overall has been great, but in this User Custom Fields add-on, the ability to control who can see fields on tabs other than Profile by using security was something that I relied on. This was a big reason why I purchased the add-on and now the functionality is gone.
Are there any plans to add this functionality back?
I just tried another idea by creating a custom Admin tab. Then I unchecked all of the security groups in the Who can view? section, thinking that only Admin would be able to see the new custom tab.
But, nope that didn't do anything. Regular users can see the tab and the fields on the tab.
I'm not sure why the Who can view? section is even there, really frustrating. Is this really by design?
Thanks for the reply @astghik
I guess I can live with managing usergroups in the Edit User screen for now, but I still have other custom fields that I want to be able to track about my users that I don't want them to see and I can't see a way to do that anymore.
What about the Who can view? section of a custom tab (not a field) in my previous screenshot? What's the purpose of it there?
