On the login page it asks for a bunch of info I don't need - like date of birth and phone number, etc. How do I eliminate this info??
Log into your admin and mouse over the word Configuration and click on Customer Details from the drop down.
There you will see the different fields that you can turn on and off.
It is ALWAYS best to require as little info as possible from your customers. You should only collect info that you absolutely need to fill their order. I highly recommend you keep the phone number as a required field, just in case you need to call them about their order.
