Hi

I want to prevent users from modifying their registered email Id. I want the email field to be read-only.  Does anyone know how to do this?
Please advice
Thanks in advanced

It's really straight forwards, all you need to do is to open the file "com_users/models/forms/profile.xml" and then add readonly="true" for email field
