Remove email address from User Profiles
« on: April 16, 2018, 01:49:58 PM »
I'm getting spam notices from my host when no one is sending emails.
I suspect it is spammers/scammers looking at profiles and sending emails via the forum software.

How would I remove the email address field from user profiles?

Why don't you just block guests from viewing the profiles?
"This is really a generic concept about human thinking - when faced with large tasks we're naturally inclined to try to break them down into a bunch of smaller tasks that together make up the whole."

I believe only admins see email address in profile.
