Solved Deleting Contact Fields

Post by Yous000 on July 31st 2016, 10:46 pm

I am trying to delete Yahoo and ICQ contact fields on my PHPbb2 forum.

I don't see the little red 'x' in the admincp

How would I go about removing these?

Cheers

Do this: press the modify button and uncheck the display boxes for profiles and messages.

I know that it does not remove it from the profile edit pages. It only removes it from the profiles in messages and the normal profile pages (The ones you see when you press the username.).

There must be a way to remove it with CSS or javascript because it looks quite sloppy having a non functioning contact field.

I wanted to replace it with Instagram


Thanks for quick replies =)

I'm having the same problem.
None of the members on my forum use ICQ/Aim/MSN/Yahoo so I hid them from profiles and messages, thinking that the fields will go away in the "Edit Profile" page as well but they didn't..
Like @Yous000, I don't see the point in having contact fields that won't be used or displayed in the Edit Profile page..
Is there really no way to remove those fields using CSS/JS?

Set your contact field file this, only Admin can see them, not members Very Happy
