1. Is there a way to make your member's activity page the home page?
I want this page as my homepage: http://i40.tinypic.com/2ynku2w.jpg
In Dashboard I've tried "Settings > Reading > Front Page: Members" , but it didn't worked out.
2. Is there a way to replace your update postings (see orange arrow) by a static profile field of your choice (i.e. brief introduction of your profile, with location / address/country you live).
