    Default How to remove some settings from Preferences page?

    I am using ZCS 7.2.2. How do I remove some settings from the preference page? For example, I would like to remove the 'Login Options' from the Preference for General? How do I disable or remove it from showing it up for the users?

    Thanks,
    Arpan

    There is 2 solutions :
    -Create a zimlet that will hide the settings and install the zimlet in mandatory mode
    -Modify templates in your skins to remove/hide the settings.

    Thanks for your response. I tried modifying Pages.template and include that as part of my skins install but that didn't help. Is there a documentation I can look at on how to do update template or create a zimlet to remove/hide the settings? I am unable to find the documentation so I am just 'trying' and see if it works.

    I suppose you modified the template "prefs.Pages#General".
    Did you correctly added the template file to the skins?
    To add a template in a skin, you must add the file in the skin, but also notify it in the manifest.xml file of the skin.
    If you do that, it should work correctly.

    Thats not enought - just removes the forms from the frontend. But users still can do it via SOAP calls.
    To block this, you'll need to put in an proxy or servlet filter, which filters out the corresponding SOAP requests.
