Member Only site with some members not having email addresses

1 year 1 month ago #306719 by billborque
I am working on developing deploying a site that does not allow registration. It's a member only organization. We manually add in members as they join or remove them if they pass away. They are usually lifetime members. Out of 350 members, we have 40 that are older folks that don't have email addresses and never will. I have a Member List that I want to display with emails for all members, and need to include the email for those 310 members that have email addresses. For the remaining 40 that don't I have added in fake emails just to get those members in Joomla and Community Builder. However, now the Member List will display the fake emails, which I don't want.

Rather than buying Community Builder add-ons with the hope that one of them will allow me to suppress showing email addresses for those that have fake email address (filtering by domain name) I wanted to inquire in this forum to see if it's possible and if so, which add-on would do the trick for me.

Looking forward to how to handle members without email addresses. As has been stated in other forum submissions, Joomla and CB assuming every person on the planet has an email address is misguided, short-sighted thinking.

Add a checkbox field to indicate if the account has a valid email address or not. For those accounts that have fake email addresses simply check the checkbox. Next in your userlist filter the list to every user that doesn't have the checkbox set to 1 (Yes/Checked). Alternative is if your fake email addresses all have something in common you can try filtering your list by that common value.

Unfortunately, it's not as simple as filtering out those users that don't have an email address. I need to display all 350 members, those that have email addresses and those that don't. I just need to have the system remove the fake email addresses when listing those members in the Member List. I am listing other fields such as member number, phone, mobile, etc. So, I do need to display all members.

Welcome to our Free support forums!

Hope you find CB useful and elect to become a paid member.

Please download the CB Primer Book and study it.

Also please see this Tutorial on CB Substitutions:

www.joomlapolis.com/documentation/279-community-builder/tutorials/18353-using-substitutions-throughout-cb

You should be able to use the User List Value Layout setting for the email field (Parameters Layout tab) to conditionally check (with regex pattern) for a fake email and substitute it.

I just tested on our demo site and this works just fine.
