I want to Disable the categories module in the Panel and redesign the profile page

How do I safely do this without breaking anything. That's 1.

  1. I really want to redesign the profile page, move the profile picture out from the Panel column to the main area, and more. Is there a way to define a custom view for the profile page?

I would also want to move the new discussion module out from the panel.

    You should read about custom themes and view overrides. Don't change any core file.

    In short: create a new theme by copying an existing theme.
    Change the about.php in your custom theme.
    Create a subfolder "views/dashboard/profile"
    Find out which file you want to override by looking at "/applications/dashboard/views/profile"
    Copy the file from there to your themes subfolder
    Change this copy as you like

    Do yourself a favor: copy/change only those files, that really need to be changed and try to do most styling with CSS.
