Can member profiles be made public (and linkable)?

    Hello

    I am preparing a site for a small research network, and I hope it is OK if I ask here about my questions about BuddyPress. I need a solution for 100+ members with individual presentation pages, access to forums, and limited posting rights+collaborative edit-rights to certain pages? Will BuddyPress fit these needs?

    I am especially uncertain about whether the member profiles can be made public and listable/linkable on the site, and furthermore if there is away to give them edit-rights to certain pages (specifically a biliography page).

    Member profile are publicly accessible. URLs look like example.com/members/username. With reference to edit rights to certain pages, this doesn’t happen out-of-the-box – but with some minor customisations it will be possible.

    I’m back to exploring Buddypress, and I am experimenting with an install. I’d like to have a linkable public profile for the members without all this sort of information:

    But only select fields (description, publications etc). I see a lot of technical info about customizing files etc when I search for this, some of it rather old. Is there perhaps a plugin that allow me to remove all this (to me) irrelevant information for non-logged-in users? It may well be there for the users when they are logged in. Perhaps it might be easier to simply create ordinary text-files for each user presentation that they can edit themselves.
