The member directory gadget creates a link to the member profile by clicking on the first field in column 1 of the member directory (typically set up as last name, first name). This provides a second level of detail about the member that is not shown in the member directory. This exposes detailed member info - a potential security issue. How do I eliminate this link to the member profile? I must prevent the general public from seeing any info about the member except what I choose to display in the member directory itself. The member profile contains data that is only used by certain administrators and must be protected from view by non-authorized members or non-members. Setting the individual fields to Private prevents them from being used in other types of member directories where they ARE needed and is not a good solution. The link itself in the member directory must be turned off. I found a thread on the forum that suggested a piece of code but it does not seem to work in version 5. Help!! The member directory gadget reveals too much information to the general public.
