Hide Email

NOTE: Remove All PHP Tags
First you want to open up your phpMyAdmin and run this query:
Code

ALTER TABLE `members` ADD `ehidden` CHAR( 3 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT 'no';


Okay, you have your Database setup, Now you want to make it so your members can pick Yes or No

In your editprofile.php Find:
Code

Email: <input type='text' name='email' size='30' maxlength='55' value='$user[email]'><br>


Add After:
Code

Would You Like Your Email To Be Shown?:
<select name="ehidden">
<option selected="selected" value="no">No</option>
<option value="yes">Yes</option>
</select> <br />


This is the dropdown so users can pick yes or no.

Next you want to find:
PHP Code
1
2
$email = addslashes(htmlspecialchars($_POST[email]));


Add After:
PHP Code
1
2
$ehidden = htmlspecialchars($_POST[ehidden]);

This will submit the answer to the database to be stored and if they have FF and the developer toolbar make it so they can't change the value.

Next, Find the line that has:
PHP Code
1
2
$update = mysql_query("UPDATE members SET email = '$email', sex = '$sex', age = '$age', location = '$location' where username = '$logged[username]'");


In that line Replace:
PHP Code
1
2
location = '$location'


With
PHP Code
1
2
location = '$location', ehidden = '$ehidden'

Thats so the info will be stored and you will not get an error.

=====SAVE AND CLOSE=====

Now for the members.php file

In that file find:
PHP Code
1
2
Email: $user[email]<br>


Replace With:
PHP Code
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
<?
";//End the echo
if(
$profile[ehidden] == no){//if its not hidden
echo "
Email$profile[email]";//echo the email
}else{//if it is
echo("
Email: <i>Hidden</i>");//Dont echo it
} //End else if
echo "
?>


=====SAVE AND CLOSE=====

You are now finished if you get any errors please post them below and i shall try to help you out

Did you remember to change the default in the MYSQL Database?

There is no visible error. It just does not update the SQL DB. Example.

In this case it is the email viewable yes, or no.
Default I set to yes. So to test it I went to my editprofile.php and changed mine to no. Then clicked update, viewed my profile still there. Editprofile.php again and it still says Yes is selected.
