    I have set the Comments tab to be private (“Only the owner” is selected for “Who can see Comments Tab?” under Setting-Appearance-Profile Menu).

    Therefore, this tab doesn’t show on the profile menu for other users as it should be. However, I am able to override this by typing an URL with userID of another user (sample below).


    Is this a bug or I have just set something wrong?

    Hi @capsulebb,

    I couldn’t replicate this issue on our test site
    What version of the Ultimate member core you have installed on your site?
    Please make sure to update to the latest 2.0.39 version of the plugin.

    Do a quick conflict test so we can rule out conflict with your theme or other plugins and see if it helps. Here is the doc on how to do a conflict test if you are not sure how to do it.

    I am using the latest version and I don’t think it’s a conflict issue. It is more likely a setting problem, here is the setting:

    UM – User Roles -> “Can view other member profiles?” is checked
    UM – Settings -> Appearance -> Profile Menu -> “Comments tab?” is checked
    UM – Settings -> Appearance -> Profile Menu -> “Who can see comments tab?” Only the owner

    1) a user cannot see the comments tab of another member when browsing the member’s profile, this is correct.
    2) however, a user can see another member’s comments tab with typing the url:

    It seems that the “Who can see comments tab?” will only hide the tab but a user can still access this tab by typing the url of this tab. Can you please confirm on this?

    Hi @ultimatemembersupport,

    are you able to replicate the issue? I have performed the conflict test and the problem still persist with only theme twenty fifth and plugin ultimate member. I have also re-installed wordpress and no luck…

    do you have any idea what might cause this issue?
