By default when you create your account on a forum, everyone including guests who are not logged into a member account can view your profile to view the info that you have made public in that area. You can modify the privacy settings of your profile, however, to prevent non forum members from being able to view your profile, while still allowing registered members to do so.
To set this up, click the Profile button found at the top menu bar, and then click the Edit Profile button found on your profile page. You'll then be taken to the Edit Profile & Statistics page; once here, click on the Privacy tab. When the Privacy page loads, look for the Who Can View My Profile option. If you want to prevent guests from viewing your profile, select the Members Only option. With that set, click the Save Privacy Settings button. When this is completed, the changes you set will immediately take place for your account.
How to show part of your birthday or hide your birthday
Your birthday is a question that you answer when you originally registered on the forum. ProBoards offers you the ability to either partially or completely hide your birthday information.
To do this, click the Profile button found in the top menu bar. Next, on your profile page click the Edit Profile button. You'll then be taken to the Edit Profile & Settings page; once here, click the Privacy tab. Toward the center of this page you'll find the option for Birthday Visibility with by a drop-down menu. You can set this to one of the following options:
-Show full birthday (e.g. December 29, 1982): With this set, visitors who view your profile will be able to see the month, day, and year that you were born.
-Show month and day (e.g. December 28): If you choose this setting, visitors will be able to see the month and day that you were born, but the year is hidden. This option shows your birthday in the forum's calendar, but no one will know your age.
-Hide birthday: With this setting, no one will see any birthday information for you. Your birthday will not be listed in the forums calendar.
Once you have the settings adjusted to your liking, click the Save Privacy Settings button found at the bottom of that page to save your changes. The changes you set here will immediately take place in your profile.
