    It works nicely. However, it would be great to allow certain user  groups (like the admin) to have their full options show.

      if ( !current_user_can( ‘administrator’ ) ) {
      function hide_personal_options(){
      echo “n” . ‘jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $(‘form#your-profile > h3:first’).hide(); $(‘form#your-profile > table:first’).hide(); $(‘form#your-profile’).show(); });’ . “n”;

    Any idea why I get the white screen when using this? I just want to remove the More information link to wp from the profile? Thanks
