JomSocial - How to Disable Cover Photo Feature

I don't particularly like Facebook's cover photo feature, so I didn't particularly like it when JomSocial followed suit.  Here's how to disable JomSocial's cover photo feature altogether.

Backup Your Site
Just in case.  The Joomla extension Akeeba Backup does a great job.

Modify the Following JomSocial Template Files
Frontpage cover photo - root/components/com_community/templates/default/frontpage.guests.php
Remove the code:

<div class="row-fluid hero-area">
...
</div>

Profile cover photo - root/components/com_community/templates/default/modules/profile/userinfo.php
Remove the code:

<div class="js-focus-cover">
...
</div>

Group cover photo - root/components/com_community/templates/default/groups.viewgroup.php
Remove the code:

<div class="js-focus-cover">
...
</div>

Event cover photo - root/components/com_community/templates/default/events.viewevent.php
Remove the code:

<div class="js-focus-cover">
...
</div>

Copy the Modified Files to JomSocial Template Overrides
Copy the files you modified to this location:
root/templates/current_template/html/com_community

This is the template override feature that allows you to keep your modifications across JomSocial package upgrades.
