Making "Personal Information" on the Accountpage leaner.
Hi there I am setting up a forum for a page, which is mostly used by a group of people who don't know computers and the internet that well. That's the reason, why i chose vanilla as forum software in the first place, because the basic featureset is so lean, that my users might actually be able to learn how to use it. Up to now i use an own implementation of something that can hardly be called a forum, but that makes it even easier to use. Additionally those people (doctors) want everything to look really respectable, they don't want anything childish. Now vanilla satisfies these conditions nearly perfectly, i'm really happy about that, but one little annoying thing remains: In your Account-Settings, under "Personal Information" you can type in your First Name, Last Name, E-Mail address, account picture an icon and even custom data. I don't want anybody to be able to set an account picture an icon or additional custom data. The possibility to do this confuses my users (yes, it does!) and it makes them mistrust the webpage. My users don't like the idea, that they can have funny avatars next to their postings. Most of them won't use the feature, but i want to make sure, that no one even could use it. So, is there a way to disable those things to appear on the Account-page? I looked through some PHP code to manually disable it, but i am not really used to PHP, i was not able to find the actual code that puts those input boxes on the webpage. Actually i was wondering, why this is a core-feature anyway, in my oppinion this functionality should be an extension (or at least it should be possible to disable it easily). Any help is highly appreciated, Jan.
