Hidden Email Addresses
« on: February 21, 2011, 02:36:18 PM »
Under your member settings, there is a flag for hiding your email address from the public.  This is poorly worded an when you set it, it actually hides your email address from EVERYONE, public and members alike.

The master setting of the forum is to hide your email address from non-members.   So, if you would like members to see your email address you will need to change the setting in your profile to NOT hide your email address from the public.    I will be changing the wording for the hide email flag soon.

edit - wording has been changed to indicate that it hides it from everyone, both public AND members

if you want other members to see your email address then you MUST edit your profile and make sure it's set to not hide it.   Non-members cannot see your email addy regardless of the setting. Setting it to hidden, though, will prevent members (aside from admins) from seeing your email addy.
