Asgaros Forum v1.14.12: Maintenance Release

12

Hi Thomas! I did in the settings do not show in the list of members administrators and banned. They are still on the list. Perhaps, if you set the setting to show the list only to registered participants, registered users can see both admins and banned users.

Hello @erenbur

It only removes the filter-options which allow users to explicitly search for administrators. In the all users-view administrators are still included.

Then I can not understand this feature. Does this function work in general search in the forum, or is there a separate search for searching members that is included in the admin panel of the forum?
Search by forum participants is needed so that users can quickly find the right person when the forum grows and there are several thousand registered users. Then you start the search and it gives you a list of nicknames. For example, you make the request "Erenbur" - you get "Erenbur", "Sergey Erenbur", "Erenbur 1".
Further, if we don’t want the admins or banned members to appear in the search, it’s probably a good idea to make a setting so that you can make them appear on the list.
There has already been raised the issue of security, asked not only me. Make it possible to hide administrators from the list, remove the opportunity to hack the site through the admin account (I removed all other possibilities to find out the account).

The idea behind it was that some siteowners dont want to highlight that there are banned users and dont want to offer an option to directly search for them with one click - the same for administrators. Hiding them completely is not really an option - image you have a forum full of posts and no members are shown at all because those posters are all administrators/moderators.

Thomas, I meant not to ban them completely forever, but to make flexible settings for the webmaster so that he himself can display the participants on the forum as he likes. Wants - will leave all. Another will want administrators to be impossible to find through a search. The third will want to hide all administrators, moderators and banned users from the list. Leave only participants. It is advisable to give them an opportunity.
Again, I would like that for forum security settings. My administrator does not participate in the discussion forum. This account has a very complex password, a lot of additional protection and is used only to configure and improve the site. But in the list of participants he is. And I would like to remove.

@erenbur I will check if I can additional settings for it. Also keep in mind that its possible to hide the memberslist completely. In this case its still possible for administrators to use the filters in the user overview of the WordPress backend.
