Basic profile privacy
|Reported by:||boonebgorges||Owned by:||cnorris23|
During our last dev chat, cnorris23 showed interest in doing some very simple profile privacy. What should this look like? Jeff Sayre's plugin is nice but is pretty heavy-duty - it touches all components, requires its own db tables, etc - which suggests that that level of control is perhaps best left to a plugin for the moment. (At the very least, we should implement in stages.)
I'm imagining something like: Each user can set profile privacy on a per-profile, per-profile-group, or per-profile-field setting. Possible settings may include, for now: everyone, logged-in members only, my friends.
It's possible to strip this idea down even further for a first implementation - for instance, leaving out the 'friends' integration, or allowing less fine-grained control (maybe restrict by group instead of by field). But I think that this strips it down a little too far.
Even this modest implementation will touch a variety of places (xprofile queries, stuff like that) so we should sketch it conceptually as a group before getting too deep in code.
