    I've split your post off from the signature limits suggestion thread.

    Why do you want to remove the text and link?
    Just set the Edit signature permission in the usergroup to Not Set (No) and it will do that.

    i dont like really like signatures, it makes reading more harder..

    the reason is so that members will not request and ask why signature is not appearing.

    So make the permission change I explained above and then manually remove all existing signatures using this SQL query: UPDATE xf_user_profile set signature = ''

    If you're not comfortable using SQL then you will have to manually remove them in the ACP for each user.

    Hi brogan
    actually i already removed the sig in phpmyadmin manually...
    so signature is now empty in database.

    all i need now is to remove any traces/links/text that users can see "signature"
    like in the dropdown menu of your profile.

    i dont want the word signature there appear so that members will not complain
    and ask why they cannot edit their signature :)

    I've already explained how to do this - set the Edit signature permission in the usergroup to Not Set (No)

    If it's set to "No", will the links still show?
