{split from} Users can contact me by e-mail

Post by Thanks in advance »

I have the following problem: The option "Users can contact me by e-mail" is Yes by default in UCP for new members on my board. I don't think this has always been the case.

I know I can set "Hide e-mail addresses:" in ACP to yes. Nevertheless I would like that "Users can contact me by e-mail" is set to "No" by default. Do you know how I can achieve that?

Thanks!

When you have a question different from the original poster don't post in an existing topic, particularly one that is 2 years old.

Information on changing the values for user default options is contained in the Knowledge Base article, Changing user options defaults and values.

Sorry and thank you for the KB link. I'm still a little bit confused about the different options. Which one do I have to change so to that "Users can contact me by e-mail" is set to "No" by default for new members.

Code: Select all

    'user_notify'        => 0,
      'user_notify_pm'     => 1,
      'user_notify_type'      => NOTIFY_EMAIL,
      'user_allow_pm'         => 1,
      'user_allow_viewonline' => 1,
      'user_allow_viewemail'  => 1,
      'user_allow_massemail'  => 1,
'user_allow_viewemail' => 1, to 'user_allow_viewemail' => 0, ?

And for existing users the following SQL query ?

Code: Select all

UPDATE phpbb_users SET user_allow_viewemail = 0 WHERE user_type <> 2;

Yes, that should do it. Sorry, just realised the article doesn't specifically cover that option. You would just need to change phpbb_ in the SQL query if that is not your table prefix (it is the default one, but sometimes people change it).
