User profile problems

Hi,
Using latest user profile module and I'm having some problems..
- under xoops general setting I've set user to be unable to change the profile email,
but using the profile module user is allowed to change it anyway and there's no way to change this in the permission mask..
- In the module permission area, the field visibility section is buggy.. I can see only three line for each field and can't understand which permissions are applied, and if I add/delete some permission the list often doesn't change

can anyone help me with this?
thanx

Ian

Are you sure about that? I think this is because you are logged in as admin. Users in the webmasters group can change email even if you have set it to 'no' in the User Info Settings.

(..modules/system/admin.php?fct=preferences&op=show&confcat_id=2)
I love Xoops!

Re: User profile problems

I don't think it's possible without hacking the core, and that could be dangerous. I would suggest to make a "feature request" for XOOPS 2.6.0 and maybe it will be included, depending how busy the Core Team is.
