Limit editing profile options and hide certain navigation options
 

Is there a way to limit what a user can edit on their profile? Our users don't need the option to add a photo or interests or anything like that so I'd like to figure out a way to disable those and maybe a few features under General.

Also, I need to remove "My Profile" from Navigation. Any way to do this? 

Thank you.

You can remove the ability to edit profiles from the role:

Site Administration > Users > Permisions > Define Roles

You would have to do each role individually, though I guess you may only need to alter the student role.

I am not sure if this would remove the "My Profile" link from the block / theme though.

There is another thread I answered here about preventing user profile images from displaying (which you cannot actually do as far as I know):

Thank you. I'll have to double check with the company if they want to completely remove the option of editing profiles, or just continue to find a way to limit it. If they say I can completely remove it, I'll try what you suggested. smile
