Hi,

I have looked but i cannot seem to see a way of controlling this feature.

Our site is starting to get an issue with guests using the feature that allows them to email members through the site, this is allowing members to receive spam.

Ideally I would like to turn this off just for guests and still allow members to use it.
Are there any handy settings for this ?

Or should I just edit the associated template to remove the capability or conditionally allow it for non guest members ?

Just asking before I attack this.

Cheers
Ade

oh and i mean't to add that the main ocProtal site does not make this functionality available at all - so is it an easy switch off ?

Cheers

Remove ocf_contactmember addon. There's no point distinguishing guests and members, as this essentially only exists for guests – members are better off with PTs.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
