Profile posts have always been visible to logged-in, non-banned users. The link for "new profile posts" has been removed.
The link is still there for me. When I clicked on it, I was able to see the posts that Spidey made to Ms. Mod this morning.
I cleared my cache and removed all the cookies, signed out and signed back in, and the link is still there for me.
It's not a big deal, except that sometimes, other members read profile posts on someone else's page, and get offended and raise a big stink.....it happened to me personally on the old version of the MB, so I had made my profile page only visible to people I follow. My concern is that the same privacy setting might not work on this version. For now, I've made posting on my profile page unavailable.

Same issue here-- what i did notice- When one clicks on "Members" or "Forums" the new profile post link is no longer available.

However, it is still there when one clicks on "New Posts or What's New."

I don't mean to be a pain in the neck, but I have cleared my cache, three times now. There is still a link for new profile posts when you click on New Posts. It appears underneath the banner announcing the board closing on Fridays. I don't know how to do a screen shot, but I tried to copy and past so you could sort of see.

Oooo, I do not like this feature. Not at all. Yes, we have been able to go to members profile pages and could read the 'open' messages there (but who has time to do that?) but now all of those messages are right there for all to view with just a click on that link. Nope, don't like it.

The link was removed from the navigation.

Now the page doesn't show any content.
