I am wanting to explain Profile Visibility to prospective website joiners and find what seems to be a conflict that I cannot figure out. The CC FAQ Privacy Question No. 3 indicates that each member has the ability to permit or not permit indexing their profile page by search engines.

There is a check box in member profiles on one of my websites, EPHS61.com, that says "Profile Visibility, but in my current site, redmondcpc.org, that check box does not show up in member profiles.

What am I missing here? It would be nice if that option was taken away from members -- has that happened?

When I click on Member Functions > Edit Profile, there's a check box that says, "Profile Visibility: Block Profile Visibility: Block the public and search engines from accessing my Profile and allow only fellow Classmates to view my Profile details. Leave this box unchecked if you wish to allow the public (friends, co-workers, family members, etc.) to view your Profile details."

Are you saying this box is missing when you click on Member Functions > Edit Profiles for your profile?

Removing that check box is an option that Class Creator can turn on. Some sites want members to have that option, some want it removed to be sure that outsiders won't see some post or message containing personal info.

Thanks. It seems like that has been turned off as an option on 1 of my 2 sites. Not sure how it got turned off but I am OK with it.

Jim - You must have at some point requested that CC Staff use our admin toggle that overrides that particular setting and removes it as an option for all of your members. This means that by default, for all of your members on this site, their profile visibility is set to blocked. (Block Profile Visibility: Block the public and search engines from accessing my Profile and allow only fellow Classmates to view my Profile details.) If you would like me to undo this on our end, I would be happy to do so.

No, no, please don't undo it. I like it the way it currently is. Before allowing people to sign up for this site there are some that have concerns about security, hacking, visibility, etc. I have been compiling a document to explain it all to them and was going to include the piece about having the choice to turn that visibility either off or on. Now I don't need to say anything about it. If they had that option I would probably go into everybody's profile and turn it off anyway.

Classmates on our website have 2 different versions of Profile Visibilty. Some have just one choice: Block all except my classmates. Others have 4 choices: 1-classmates only in my class; 2 - only classmates from my school; 3 - all Class Connection members or 4- allow Facebook friends.

I can't figure out why some have 4 choices and others only have the one choice?

That list appears to be the profile visibility options for Class Connection rather than from your site. It all depends of whether or not the member is also a member of Class Connection.

The link is right under the Login box, after you are logged in. It shows up similar to this:
