Can't delete a fixed field? (5 posts)

    I successfully installed and configured your plug-in. Very simple.

    But, I need to remove one of the Fixed Fields - the "Your Website" field, specifically. I checked the box next to it in the Fields tab under the Manage Fixed Fields heading, but the Bulk Actions dropdown only contains a choice for Save, not Delete, as in the Manage User Fields area.

    I could hide this field with CSS easily enough, but can't figure out why I can't delete it in the plug-in configuration. Many visitors to the site on which I am working don't have websites, and although I can set the field to Not Required, I just want to remove it.

    TIA for your help!

    For the fields you don't want to use:
    Using the latest version you can detach field you don't need in Form Options see latest part Attached Fields:

    If you want to completely hide this field from the admin section,
    check in the database and remove the entry from
    You will probably need also to edit php files of the plugin so make sure you a have a full backup of the script and database before modifing this. The first solution should do the job.

    Unfortunatly, I have found that despite having removed the Your Website as an attached field, Saving, and then checking the form, the field still persists.

    I have cleared my browser cache, so that isn't the problem.

    CSS-only solution (CSS3), works only in modern browsers, but OK for my purposes. Hides the unwanted field and closes up the space where the website field would be:

    body.page-id-48 form div:nth-child(3) {

    You can find the body class you need from just looking at the code on the page when it displays. I added these 2 lines to my theme's custom CSS file. HTH
