    In the forum profile we can set the option to browse invisibly but on the front page and on forum pages there is a "Welcome USERID" showing at the top of the page. Is it possible to have the option to mask that field so over the shoulder snoopers can't see my ID while I'm logged onto the site? Thanks.

    I can see if I can hide it if you are invisible.

    It should now be hidden if you are invisible.

    Change to invisible mode under https://forum.videohelp.com/profile.php?do=editoptions

    Thanks that helps a lot. It works fine now on the forum index page and any forum page below that.

    It is still showing the userid on the front page where it says "Welcome back USERID at the top right of the page.

    Hmm. The front page is not as easy to fix. The vbulletin user database options flags are not that easy to understand.......but I will try.

    Code:
    // decipher 'options' bitfield
    	$user['options'] = intval($user['options']);
    
    	foreach ($vbulletin->bf_misc_useroptions AS $optionname => $optionval)
    	{
    		$user["$optionname"] = ($user['options'] & $optionval ? 1 : 0);
    		//DEVDEBUG("$optionname = $user[$optionname]");
    	}

    If the front page is too much trouble please don't sweat it. When I'm in a public area, I can easily jump into the forum index after logging in and navigate from there. What you've done is fantastic and does the job. It's just what I needed. I wish other site administrators were as accommodating as you have been over the years. Thanks again Baldrick.

    I well recall Baldrick putting that info on the page because one user wanted to see it as if he could not post without seeing it.

    Nut it's only a username and even if someone is looking over your shoulder it kinda means little. It's not as if you were in some pron site is it ?

    I know a lot of people with whom I enjoy conversation and opinions but it doesn't necessarily mean that I want to share my online personas with them.

    If I told you what happened to a close friend of mine on a sports related forum exactly the way I describe I think you'd understand.

    It should now be hidden on the front page also.

    Code:
    SELECT username FROM user WHERE userid =  'userid' AND options & 512
    Checks if the user is invisible....not that obvious.
