Topic: How to disable showing user list in frontend?
as I don’t think it is a good idea to show a user list to everyone, I’d like to disable it in frontend. Even if you delete the entry users from the menu, someone could guess this URL and take a look at the list. Worst of all, the email addresses are shown, though obfuscated in source, but this should not be a problem for today’s spam bots.
I could change the files plugins/box/users/views/frontend/index.view.php and plugins/box/users/views/frontend/profile.view.php, but perhaps they would be overwritten on next system update. So my question is: Is there a way to override core functionalities without overwriting the core files? For example, like in WordPress, with the help of functions.php? Or similar to Drupal, concrete5 etc.?
An option in the backend to disable the display of the user list would also be great.
Any hints for a workaround are welcome, thank you.
