Disabling Profile posts should remove the Profile Posts tab

    For those that wish to disable profile posting, ideally the tab on their profile should be removed as well.
    The suggestion is to incorporate the functionality of this addon into the core.

    This solves it.

    Blindly removing the tab implies that there were never any profile posts to begin with, leaving the tab allows any previous posts to still be viewed.

    YES ! Which is exactly what I want.
    Lots of forums have no need at all for Profile posts.

    Well, if you can't view them there wouldn't be anything to show, but it would require moving the information tab to be the next in line.

    Not if you fully disable the profile post feature (view permissions can be revoked). And when doing so, the member page looks pretty bare now.

    Like the "new posts" page, the tab should be removed. Or alternately, place it at the end. That would avoid an empty member page as well.

    I have done a little work on this, I’m no developer. So if anyone would like to take over this or come with ideas of how it can be done better, please do. This is almost like the addon referred to in the first post, but that one removes a lot more under the user profile.
    The first thing to do is change permissions, set them to the following or just no:

    This doesn't take of everything, unfortunately. You should now be able to remove profile post related bits from a handful of places by installing attached addon. You have to change the extension from .txt to .xml
    It only works on XF 1.4 as far as I know.

    Moderator edit: Add-ons must be posted in the correct location, not in suggestion threads.

    Sorry about that, I put it here now:

    I do believe and it is my XF suggestion that setting all Profile Posts Permissions to No should remove what my addon removes.

    The ability to disable the profile post system in the XF core would be a valuable option.

    No one will know your vote, if you don't like the first post :)
