How can you add custom profile fields to the user profile?

Can we easily add education, work and other fields?  What about dynamic fields with autosuggest across hundreds of rows of data?


Hello Frank,

I will suggest using BuddyPress for profile. Also since 4.0, BuddyPress will be default profile plugin.

BuddyPress already have field editors.

Good to know! A bit sad though cause I liked AP profile pages a lot. I guess it will mean a better and easier integration in WP when you are aiming for a small social network. Definitely my goal, so I guess I’ll still be able to contribute to the documentation. 😉

Profile is not gone for every, I will push profile/activities/notifications again in few days but it will be available as an addon.

Addon sounds like the best way to go. 4.0 is definitely a really exciting release! 😀
