Email addresses no longer visible in admin pages


(Tobias Eigen) #11

what is the workflow again that requires this to be visible on the users page? I don’t see the point of having it in there for my own purposes. When I need to contact users outside the forum I can always do that by exporting the user list which I do periodically anyway.

Please let me know where I as a moderator need to click.

I’ve looked, but if it’s there somewhere I’ve missed seeing it.

The only email address I can see anywhere is mine, and well, I already know that.

Does your user admin page not look like this? See the “Show” link next to the Email address. Click on that to show the email address.

My localhost as eviltrout does.
But my SitePoint as a Moderator does not.

Perhaps your community is small enough and you are the only moderator?

Although having the capabilty on individual member Admin pages would be better than nothing, what is more devastating to being able to efficiently moderate is not having them on the Admin -> User “Active” and “New” pages.
The ability to Filter by Membername and Email address on those pages was a step in the right direction, but removing email addresses from them is crippling.

[/quote] Yup, ours does.

[/quote] Mine does so it must be admin, not mod.

I don’t think that solves our issue though. I’ll wait on @codinghorror to confirm that it has gone for good on the userlist page before deciding how to proceed.

Looks like the ability for mods to see it has some recent support:

Edit: sorry, misunderstood the discussion is now focused on whether email addresses should be shown on the User List page… so you can search / filter by it, etc.

Identifying patterns in the emails of new accounts to proactively identify spammers.


(James Milligan) #18

Weird one here. I’ve got an unapproved user that I can’t show the email for… it has the ‘Show’ button, and ‘Not verified’ just above it. Clicking it generates a 404 when trying to ‘PUT’ to emails.json for the username. Works correctly on other users.


(Dave McClure) #19

That sounds like the issue reported here:


(Sam Saffron) #20

To me this feels a bit odd:

This “security” thing out of the box is heavily convoluting my regular work as a moderator.

It won’t even search by email for us moderators only… :frowning: (even when setting show email on profile to checked).

This has definitely cramped our moderating too.


(Sam Saffron) #22

That is an old bug, we need you upgraded to latest cc @santouras


(cpradio) #23

We are pretty close to latest… we are on a commit higher than beta6 at least (so can you elaborate on old bug?) As we used to be able to search by email address and it went away when the “show email on profile” was introduced

Happens on my Dev machine too, which is latest (when I tested it a few days ago)


(Régis Hanol) #24

Nope, right now only admin can search by email. I will allow moderators too and add the show email button.

(Kane York) #26

Can it be “show all emailS”? Because that would be more conducive to the desired use-case, while still preserving the “data leakage by accident” properties.


(Barbie) #27

I’m not sure if this has been done or not. As a mod I used to be able to search email and now I can’t.


(Régis Hanol) #28

First part of the fix is now in :cat2:


(Régis Hanol) #29

Here’s the 2nd part of the fix :mouse2:
