Privacy options in member profiles appears limited to "About Me" and "Interests" am I missing something or are there ways to add privacy options to fields like Member Photo and/or coms (like Skype Number, Yahoo ID etc) or any other field for that matter?

Ok so I deiscovered that many of the proflile fields are settable by the owner as to who can view them once they have been set with a value. Although Interests and About Me show up in Privacy when blank the others (like msn id) won't show up in privacy until you have set a value.

The Photo however I cannot find in Privacy even after set. I really would like this one to allow users to set but I can't see anywhere to do that?

One idea I had was make a Custom field that uploads a photo and then I could set privacy on it however the uploaded photo is not displayed in the users profile only a link to open the photo in a new window is which sucks. Here I was thinking all I'd have to do is edit template file or something and remove regular photo and leave custom one but no such luck. It couldn't be that easy could it? lol

WYSIWYG fields are showing up due to white-space in them, we'll make a change to handle that.

Only CPFs are on the privacy screen. More features would be nice but not currently there. It shouldn't really currently be considered as Facebook-like controls, it is more if highly sensitive data is being entered.

There are Tempcode symbols to show CPF values, so you could make all kinds of changes to the layout if you want.

Thanks for the reply. If your going to fix the white space issue perhaps adding a default message to notify users that once they set values for a field they will then be able to see it in Privacy might help too cause one can get a little lost or confused when you first look in there and it is empty with nothing to set.

At top of privacy page it says, "Use this screen to configure the privacy for the member profile fields that you have filled in.".
