Giving users the ability to add custom fields on their profile – Thanks in advance!

    Hi everyone,

    I’d like to give users the ability to add custom fileds on their profile, very much like admins can. My site is not trade or topic-specific, so by adding my own “categories” I feel I’m limiting my users a lot. How would I go about doing this?

    Also, is it possible to let users upload/link to their own background images?

    Thanks,
    Jill

    (bump) Well it’s been about 7 days and I haven’t received a response. I hate to ask because I’m sure everyone’s busy but could someone at least point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,
    Jill

    To go about doing this would require fairly advanced PHP skills and experience with the BP API, it’s not a straightforward task. Not sure if anyone has attempted this, think it’s been discussed or touched upon briefly before

    Not sure this does make sense though would it not result in possibly a very bloated xprofield table full of user created one off custom fields.
