Is there a way to "hide" the a members usergroup on the members view page from everyone except super users or admins? Some of the are sensitive, and we dont want people see the group and getting upset because they are not part of it.

Admin Zone Security Permissions Tree Editor

Depending on how you have set up your site, choose 'Site' or 'Welcome' zone and scroll down to 'Module:members'. Check the 'View access' for each Usergroup, un-ticking the access you want to restrict.

Test your changes by joining as an unregistered 'Guest' AND as another registered member (preferably from each restricted usergroup) using the SU feature that you can find in your footer.

Good luck.

That does not seem to hide the usergroups on the members page, I still would like to allow the users to see each others members page, just hid the usergroup box to everyone except adminstrators. The usergroups are comming from our Linux server, as some are used as monitoring groups, I just dont want anyone to see those groups or to be able to tell who is in them, but I need to use those groups on the portal as well.

Should be a hiding option on the edit usergroup screen, may be under advanced or similar.

I have all of the usergroups hidden, but they still show on the members page under usergroups.

sorry, show up on the members page as "secret usergroup #12), I guess that will work, they will know how many groups the user is in, but will not know the name of it, that give away what the group is for. Thanks for your help guys, I should have this up and running tommorrow. Will let you know how it works out.
