During this coming April, you may notice something peculiar on the
civicrm.org download page -- instead of
4.7.32, you'll see a jump up to

They’re aware that demographics and communication preferences can be removed via the UI (/civicrm/admin/setting/preferences/display?reset=1)
This is a simple extension that collapses both the communication preferences and demographics sections by default on the summary page.
We’ve added a few...Read more
