View Full Version : vb3 integration ignoring users' invisible choice

PhotoPost Classifieds appears to be ignoring the user's 'invisible' flag when deciding who to show as online or offline by the comments or who to include in the "Users browsing the ads:" list. So it is effectively "outing" users who which to remain hidden.

correct our whos online is our whos online and has nothing to do with vb or its invisibility option.

Ok, I can buy your argument for the "Users browsing the ads:" list, but the online/offline icon on comments really is just wrong. Just because userA may have posted a comment in the photopost classifieds system many months ago and then, for example, never visits ppc again after that, doesn't give the photopost classifieds system the right to reveal his vbulletin online/offline status indefinitely for anyone who views that comment.
It's one thing to reveal that the user is currently online nside ppc. It is another thing to peek into the vbulletin database, ignore the invisible flag in that database, and reveal to the public if a user is currently logged in to vbulletin.

Sorry but this is not an option we pull in the integration as noted.
