Hide the administrator's activity?

Seems like the actions of the administrator are viewable to members on the activity page. Can this be changed? Perhaps by modifying the role settings?

    Why would you want them hidden?
  • Options
    Well, for my part, I don't see why all the users need to know whenever an admin changes someone's permissions or member status ...

    I agree. Admin activity should not be viewable by members or guests.

    @jamie_c That will fail, you'll forwlget or something.
    @Mark Yes, I'm with these guys, you kinda need one....

    @Mark for most forums (ie. not coding/geek centric ones), it's simply not interesting to the usual forum user what is going on behind the scenes. They just want to discuss things and see what their friends are doing.

    I think it should be an option to hide certain user groups from that view - plugin?

    it works fine, just delete the entries and they arnt there to be viewed by anyone, simple enough really, as for "you'll forwlget or something" I have no idea what thats suposed to mean

    I can see the point of having an option to prevent groups from viewing the admins activity, but I still dont see it as an issue really, when its easy enough to delete any entries on the activity page,
    sign in as admin, click on activity and delete any entries, job done

    i'm running into this issue now. I don't want anyone member or guest to be able to view activity. Is there a way to block it, other then deleting?

    @lukoie thanks, that is what i ended up using
  • Options
    I agree with this guys. Actions of the administrator should be hidden or at least give an option for it.

    Probably a stupid comment, but you guys know, that you can delete any activity manually?
  • Options
    of course we do, but its a lot of stupid work. instead you can just optionally restrict that info to show up in the activity stream, if it would be possible!

    Sounds like a pretty cool plugin idea, and quite straightforward too!

    I agree, I would like to use the free hosted version to manage conversations among a small group of people and do not want the activity to be open for others to see. It's not just admin comments, it's stuff that people post as well.

    There should be an option that allows one to just turn that feature off.
