I wonder if it's possible to hide first name, surname and email from other users on your profile page? I'll buy the pro version if this is possible. Hope you can reply ASAP as I need to decide today if I should buy it or find another solution...
Thanks, Per

yes, for each field you can choose parameter called "Visibility for", this parameter allow you to choose who have right to see these informations, see screenshot of the tip.

Alternatives based on your needs
- you can enable privacy for each field, so the user will choose if I field will be visible or not
- you can avoid to access to all profiles, the parameter is called "Visibility Profiles" in Components->Easy Profile->Options

All these thing are available in the free version, so you are able to try it ;)

Hello, thanks for your reply!
The problem though is that even if I choose to display it only to admins the first name is visible (everything else is hidden). Some of my users will want even their first name to be private.

Best regards,

you mean as title of the profile page?

If it's possible to get rid of it by editing some file I will do that.
It's really important to me to get this sorted quickly.

you can choose how to display to identify your user from Components->Easy Profile->Options->Core Fields->Display Format Name parameter, as default it is set to "Format Name", so it will display Joomla Name (Firstname + Lastname).

You can choose also "Custom" to set to show some other custom in the title and lists (or for example to remove firstname)
