Remove Open ID and Instant Messenger from New Individual form

On the 'new individual' form, you may want to remove the Instant Messenger and/or OpenID fields. If your organisation isn't storing this information you may want to remove the fields from display to reduce clutter and simplify the experience for your CRM users.

In CiviCRM 2.0.6, you can do this by editing the following file:

Comment out lines 105 and 106, which relate to building the openID and instant messenger fields. The if block should look like this after you've commented it out:

if ( ! $locationCompoments ) {
                CRM_Contact_Form_Phone::buildPhoneBlock   ($form, $location, $locationId, self::BLOCKS); 
                CRM_Contact_Form_Email::buildEmailBlock   ($form, $location, $locationId, self::BLOCKS); 
                //CRM_Contact_Form_IM::buildIMBlock         ($form, $location, $locationId, self::BLOCKS); 
               // CRM_Contact_Form_OpenID::buildOpenIDBlock ($form, $location, $locationId, self::BLOCKS);

Save and then login to CiviCRM and test the change by going to the New Individual form.
Because this is a core CiviCRM file, your changes may be lost when you upgrade CiviCRM.
