    Considering it's only visible to users that are able to edit profiles, why would you want to remove it?

      Because in the past, when one of the staff accounts got hacked, it gave access to too many things, including the mod control panel, same reason the links at the bottom of the forums for the mod and admin control panels is removed, and those directories are renamed.

      So anyone have the method on how to remove this ?

      Thanks

        Fair enough.. in MEMBERINFO, find and remove this:
        HTML Code:
        <vb:if condition="$show['edit_profile']">
        				<a href="moderator.php?{vb:raw session.sessionurl}do=useroptions&amp;u={vb:raw userinfo.userid}" class="textcontrol imagecontrol"><img src="{vb:stylevar imgdir_button}/edit_40b.png" alt="{vb:rawphrase edit_user_profile}" /></a>
        				</vb:if>

          Remember to change the name of moderator.php if you haven't covered that in your zealous anti-hack mission.

            Thanks for the info, much appreciated

            We are not over zealous, we are careful or at least try to be, the one site got hacked 3 times, and it was due to these little things, that allow the hackers to areas you don't want them in.....so anything to stop it is good sense, as far as we are concerned. And yes that file will be changed as well.
