User Profile Visibility Manager blocking clickthrough to Member Profile

    If I have User Profile Visibility Manager enabled and full access is allowed for a Member, other Members can’t click through to see the original Member’s profile. When User Profile Visibility Manager is disabled, other Members can click through to original Member’s profiles just fine.

    Hello Mark,

    Sorry for the inconvenience. By click, do you mean other users are not able to access his/her profile or do nothing happens when other users click his/her profile link?.

    Regards

    HI Mark,
    Thank you for the video. It was very helpful.

    I can see the issue. Here is the reason:-

    1. “Groups” is set as the default component(landing page) for a user. When you click on a user’s profile, you are see the groups as the default tab.

    2. The My Groups is set to “Only Me” for the user.

    That means, if you access your site.com/members/username/profile, this will be visible but the link site.com/members/username/ will not be visible as it defaults to my group.

    Solution:-

    Please either change the privacy for “My Groups” or change the Landing tab from Groups to profile.

    Hope that helps.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thank you!! That worked like a charm.

    But now we have just a very boring profile view (see image: https://www.loom.com/i/1cf74bc251d7456ebb9cb65e95f2ccec).

    What can I do to make the info displayed on the Profile tabs look cool and include more info? Perhaps you recall, I was hoping to include the WordPress backing Biographical Info field as something editable. But this profile is soooo boring looking lol!!

    I want anybody who clicks on a profile to be able see something great, like a slimmed down LinkedIn profile with spots for interesting info and a nice layout.

    Yours,
    Mark

    Hi Mark,
    Thank you for confirming the solution.

    The problem with profile is lack of data on the profile.

    I am sorry, I could not help you with the xprofile data sync earlier. I will post the code and link today.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Thank you, Brajesh.

    Back to the original issue of pulling 404 errors on a persons profile page, I can also see that if I set the Profile to the first tab and someone hides their profile, we would again have the same issue – a direct URL referral to that person’s profile would redirect to a 404 page.

    Is there a way to gracefully handle 404 errors relating to any profile blocks? I would like to choose a live page for blocked profile errors. Is there a code snippet I could use for that?

    Yours,
    Mark

    Hi Mark,
    Are you referring to

    
    Who Can See your profile?
    
    

    This option blocks all pages of the user. It is not the user/profile page.

    You can set a redirection policy(and fallback) in the Dashboard->settings->BP Profile Visibility Manager page.

    Regards
    Brajesh
