Thanks so much for the video, it was very helpful.

I have installed latest version, disabled all plugins and add-on apps, plus tried the settings you have outlined above and other combinations (including no view permissions at all for anyone) and it still shows the flag to all usergroups.

:( I've had to disable for now until I figure out why its not working. 

Thanks again for trying.

 

Hi Adriano,

This is still happening for me.  The permissions are not working.

Has no-one else reported anything similar?

I'd greatly appreciate help in fixing it.  I can see that it works for you in your demo but this is not how it works for mine.  I tried replicating the same settings and any other combinations I can think of but no matter what all members can see the flags.

I have tried disabling all plugins.

This didn't happen in the version prior to December last year.

Example, I have selected view only by Administrators and Moderators, but general members can still view it on other members' profile pages.

Is that the problem?

If so, it is like since version 1.0.0. It shows to everyone in member profile:

		{{if $member->members_country}}
		{{$lang = "country-" . mb_strtoupper( $member->members_country );}}
		<li>
			<h4 class="ipsType_minorHeading">
				{lang="members_country"}
			</h4>
			<span>
				<i class="ipsFlag ipsFlag-{$member->members_country}"></i> {lang="$lang"}
			</span>
		</li>
		{{endif}}

The only check it does in profiles is if the member has a flag. It always worked like that.

The permission "show everywhere" applies to selected user groups.

  • Version released in december fixes an error in registration screen.
  • Version released in february fixes an error on uninstall process.

Profile never was touched and always worked like that. You are free to download previous versions and look yourself:

I can apply permission there too in a future version, like 4.3.0, if that helps.

OK, so this setting doesn't apply to the profile page?

I had it working successfully for a long time and then it changed.  Perhaps this is what you are referring to.

For our community I use this as a tool for our staff to detect trolls and spammers.

We are also diligent about privacy and so it's not very user-friendly for members to have their country revealed to others on their profile.

I'd love for the plugin to be able to respect the permissions settings on the profile page also.

Thanks for considering.

Yes, doesn't apply.

Man, I know the resource. I've made it. ?

Believe me... it NEVER used any restriction in profile page. As I said, you can download any version (1.0.0 for example) and you will see.

I'll add it in next version.

Thanks Adriano.

Have installed and it's almostttt perfect lol ((sorry))

Even if I don't allow a usergroup to edit their country or see any flags they can still see this in their profile:

Ideally they should only have the ability not to see them if they have permission to see them in the first place.

Know what I mean?

Hello,

When I changed my country in the settings to UK the profile did change to the correct country, however the setting drop down box shows china, so from an end users point of view looking at the settings only it would appear that they can't change their country as it always resets to china.

Is it possible to change it so that the drop down shows the last selected and saved country?

Currently the select box defaults to the country of the IP Address you're using at the moment you're browing the board.

Thanks, not sure why it is showing China for me then, I am currently in UK and using a UK IP address.

Hi @Adriano Faria

I just noticed, that the "Country" tab in the account settings responsible for the Flags Display, is not shown anymore there 😞 

1496627119_.thumb.PNG.9559a1a273bcc21542215796bdee79d0.PNG

It only shows there when I select this group in the plugin settings for "Groups allowed to change/omit the country". If the group is not selected there, the menu on the picture below is not available:

833222695_.thumb.PNG.f346bbf4669e78361dab81cea5e1c9e7.PNG

But! If I go to this menu using the direct link: https://www.myforum.ru/forum/settings/?area=country , I will be able to access it.

So I summarize the problem above in two sentences:

1) "View member flags" button is available only when going to the direct link, the menu "Country" is not shown in the account settings.

2) When a user is in one of the selected groups in the plugin settings "Groups allowed to change/omit the country", this user will have the "country" menu available in his account settings!

Please help to check, thanks!

There isn’t one single line in the entire plugin to remove data so it won’t remove anything!

Make sure your settings are right, like if there are groups selected to view flags. 

“Adds member country in ACP profile” isn’t a setting. It simply Adds the country there, as shown in the image:

Plus: you are showing as Member so IPS Geolocation is disabled in your board.

      This resource will display the country flag of user in several places of the entire suite, including third-party resources. It uses the Geo location to grab the country when a new user register an account or when existing users logs in on your board. Clicking on the flag will give you a list of all users from that country.
      Important Notice:
      IPS Geolocation is an active license perk so you need to have an active license to countries get picked by IP Address. Usage:
      New members: new members will have their country detected when they register the account Existing members: Country will be recognized when member is online or if allowed by the admin, go to Account Settings and pick your country. Settings:
      Display country flag everywhere: will display the country flag in several places from official apps like on Forums, Gallery, Blogs, Pages, Gallery, Downloads, including its widgets and third-party resources. If disabled, will display the country name + flag only on user profile. If you disable this option, a new setting will show up so you can choose specific applications where to show the flags. Groups allowed to change the country: users from selected groups will be able to change their country on Account Settings. Sometimes Geolocation picks an wrong country, so the user will be able to fix it. Integration:

      The help guides on this site all seem to be written with site administrators and moderators in mind. Is there any guide that documents how members of a community can actually use the forums?

      Inactive Members and Real Last Activity is a suite of tools and enhancements for your IPS Community, designed to help you measure real last activity, notify users based upon real last activity, and ultimately manage inactive members.  
      Are you looking to re-engage old or inactive members?   Are you looking to automatically clean out inactive members?  Are you looking to overcome the hidden activity of anonymous users? Inactive Members and Real Last Activity by @Fosters adds three powerful tools into your admin toolkit to help you intelligently manage the activity of your members.
      Inactive Members
      Inactive Members adds new rule-making capabilities to your Members tab in the ACP which empower you to engage inactive members and attract them back; manage inactive members by automatically moving them to another membergroup or permanently deleting them; and automate the entire setup  in a seamless and constant back-end process.  
      Choose the number of inactive days.  Select the action.  Save.  
      Other features on Inactive Members include:
      Write multiple rules such as 30 days, 60 days, and 180 days based on your own community activity and needs Exclude certain membergroups so they stay protected from changes Draft custom email messages using the powerful IPS tag system to customize it to the recipient Real Last Activity
      Real Last Activity adds a new measurement metric to every user profile on the user's actual recorded activity.  This can be used to overcome the activities of users who mark themselves as anonymous and participate in the forums without showing their activity.  
      Bulk Mail Filter
      A new filter is added to the IPS Bulk Mail feature.  This can be used to sharpen your Bulk Mail targeting to include or exclude anonymous users based upon their real last activity on your community.  For users who want to stay anonymous but who actively visit and participate on your website, you can now target them better with your community newsletters and mailings.
