need a plugin to customize user profile fields

I am trying to find a plugin to edit user profile fields. For example, I want to be able to add or remove fields from the User profile fields on the backend. If the user wants to edit their profile I want to be able to remove certain fields and maybe add some new ones. For now what I really want to do is remove the KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS checkbox field for User Profile. Thank you,

    Hey Eli,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    For managing additional profile fields I'd recommend nothing more than BuddyPress with X-profile fields enabled. Although BuddyPress is a complex tool that allows you to build a "social-like" site, it's often used solely for building custom user profiles.

    The cool feature of it is (in my humble opinion) that it plays great with majority of our own plugins :slight_smile:

    However, this will let you build custom profiles but not remove existing fields built-in into WordPress. I'm not aware of any rock-solid plugin that would let you do this. I think though hiding this with some CSS may be a simplest solution (therefore user will not be able to edit it). For "keyboard shortcuts" fields in user dashboard this rule added to admin's css should work:

    .user-comment-shortcuts-wrap {display:none;}

    To add CSS rules to dashboard/back-end you may want to use this plugin instead of editing WP core files:

    If you have any further questions, please ask. I'll be glad to help!
