echo "\n" . '<script type="text/javascript">jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $(\'form#your-profile > h3:first\').hide(); $(\'form#your-profile > table:first\').hide(); $(\'form#your-profile\').show(); });</script>' . "\n";

  1. Any idea why I get the white screen when using this? I just want to remove the More information link to wp from the profile? Thanks

  2. This doesnt work for me

    1. Just tested this in 3.8 and it works perfectly as expected.

  3. it works, thanks

  4. It works nicely. However, it would be great to allow certain user  groups (like the admin) to have their full options show. 

    1. if ( !current_user_can( ‘administrator’ ) ) {
      function hide_personal_options(){
      echo “n” . ‘jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $(‘form#your-profile > h3:first’).hide(); $(‘form#your-profile > table:first’).hide(); $(‘form#your-profile’).show(); });’ . “n”;
