    Try this on for size. Hackish but functional, until real exclude arguments exist (they’re coming in 1.3, I promise!) Put it in your bp-custom.php

    `function bbg_disallow_name_edit( $has_profile ) {
    global $profile_template, $bp;

    if ( ‘edit’ != $bp->current_action || !bp_is_my_profile() )
    return $has_profile;

    foreach( (array)$profile_template->groups as $group_key => $group ) {
    foreach( (array)$group->fields as $field_key => $field ) {
    if ( $field->name == BP_XPROFILE_FULLNAME_FIELD_NAME ) {
    unset( $profile_template->groups[$group_key]->fields[$field_key] );
    $profile_template->groups[$group_key]->fields = array_values(
    $profile_template->groups[$group_key]->fields );
    break 2;
    }
    }
    }

    return $has_profile;
    }
    add_filter( ‘bp_has_profile’, ‘bbg_disallow_name_edit’ );`

    bp-custom.php is a file you may create and place in the wp-content/plugins/ directory.

    Please don’t bump your post more than once per day, especially on the weekend.

    The Base button corresponds to the Base profile fields group. There is no easy way to turn this off at this time.
