Restrict messages per user

  • Author

    Would it be possible to restrict messages depending on the role/status of the vendor? For example, if a vendor adds a listing in the ‘Artist’ category (I’m using categories as profiles) a user without an active membership would be able to send them a message, but an active membership would be needed in order to contact vendors who have added listings in the ‘host’ category.

    I’m referring specifically to sending messages via the ‘message’ icon that appears under the vendor’s profile, not to the ‘send message’ button in the listing itself.


    Ok, I’ve found a workaround for the time being, by removing the icon using the following CSS snippet:

    .fa-comment {
        display: none;

    However, when you click on a vendor’s profile you’re redirected to a page where you can see their listings, and below their profile picture there’s an icon saying: ‘send message’. Is it possible to hide this icon?

    Please try using this CSS snippet to hide just the message icons/links:

    .hp-vendor .hp-vendor__action--message-send {display:none}


    Thanks Ihor,

    That CSS snippet didn’t work, but this one did:

    .hp-vendor .hp-vendor__action--message {display:none}

    Yes, it seems that I posted the incorrect CSS class. Thanks for posting the solution.
