1) How do I test that the privacy controls are working on my profile

2) How to I remove whole sections (i.e. Favorite Authors) from my profile, so I do not see the sections.  I have tried removing all the books/authors from the lists, but the system doesn't seem to allow this.

Hi Alicia -

1. There isn't a preview screen at this time.

I took a look at your profile and It shows your About me info, your location city/state, how many books you have on your bookshelf & wishlist, and how many forum posts too.  If I click on the bookshelf and wish list tabs I can view the books.  Hope that helps.

2. In your view there isn't a way to remove sections at this time, only for the general membership.  Your view will always show all the sections available.

What some members have chosen to do is just leave those sections as is and go to their Settings tab and make them viewed by me only and then forget about them.  That way others won't see them and they don't have to bother with updating them.  Perhaps this will help for you.
