Description of problem


I am using our discussion group for a womens and trans liberation group. In the profile section, it asks if the user is male or female. In our group we have many gender types, cis female, self defining female, intersex, non binary.

Can I request in my forum, that the gender question is removed or pointed in the direction of removing it myself? It is causing some offence.

To remove it, you will need to modify a template.

AP > Display > Templates > Profile > profile_add_body
Find and Remove:
<!-- BEGIN switch_gender -->
               <dt><label>{L_GENDER}&nbsp;: {MUST_GENDER}</label></dt>
                  <label><input type="radio" name="gender" value="1" {GENDER_MALE_CHECKED} /><span class="cont">{L_GENDER_MALE}</span></label>
                  <label><input type="radio" name="gender" value="2" {GENDER_FEMALE_CHECKED} /><span class="cont">{L_GENDER_FEMALE}</span></label>
            <!-- END switch_gender -->
Save changes then publish the template.

Remove the option from profile in messages:
AP > Users & Groups > Users > Profiles
Modify the gender field and uncheck both options for display.
