    Running the query listed in post #2 will turn it off for all users. Users can also turn this functionality off and on within their own user settings. Settings -> General Settings. There is no privacy issue.

    To permanently disable the feature, edit the template and remove the HTML code.

    We should have a way to turn it off in the admincp or at least set the user groups that have access to it. I read where quite a few vb users have asked for a way to turn this off. It would be nice to have this option. It had recently become a privacy on one of my vb sitess
    This would require custom coding.
    No further development work will be done on vB4 now. From a development perspective it is now end of life.

    If you download the vCard it gives out the users email address.

    Is there a way to permanently disable vCard so that it can not be used on the forums?

    Turn it off in AdminCP > Settings > Options > User Registration Options > Default Options > uncheck Allow vCard Download That will make it so it is off for all newly registered users.

    To turn it off for everyone - Maintenance > Execute SQL Query (make sure your userid is entered in the config.php file to allow queries) > set No - Allow vCard Download in the dropdown > Continue

    Disabling vCard Downloads

    Is it possible to disable within the control panel the option to download users vCards for an entire usergroup, or for the entire forum for that matter? I have searched all over the control panel but thus far cannot find anything in regards to this.

    TY
