If these fields can't be removed through the admin, can you at least put some well-define structure on the HTML so we can hide them using CSS? It would be easy to hide it if you add a class to the Social Network row on the profile page, for example. 

Ideally though we can just select the fields that are appropriate within the admin. 

Thanks.

Hi @info100123,

Each element has its specific classes, you can hide the elements via its class name, e .g.  you can use the "wpf-field-name-occupation" class name to hide the occupation field.

.wpf-field-name-occupation{
display:none !important;
}

The CSS code should be added in the "Custom CSS code" textarea, located in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles admin page. 

 

There are some permissions/CANS you can uncheck, for example 

  • Front - Can upload avatar
  • Front - Can have signature
