Your own option

There are some deep parts which is not listed there and you need to add your own options to hide them.

As an example, I would like to make About Yourself section in User > Your Profile invisible for all the user roles. To do that, i added a custom option and name it About Yourself. Then add the css selector to hide exactly those parts.
