Modifying default user profile view

  • Answered
my question is related to Brad's article on User Profile Views in Joomla 2.5.

is there a way to remove any fields in default User Profile view. For example, I do not need "Editor" and "Timezone" fields in Basic Settings section of the profile.

Hello Jackb,

In my preliminary review I read an article that points out that the 2.5 system plugin named "User-Profile" has pre-made user fields that cannot be edited. I'm going to double-check this and reply again to this article by tomorrow (the author of the Joomla articles is gone for the today) and see if there's anyway at all to edit these fields. I did find a solution, but it appears to be a paid solution, not something you can change with the existing code.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
