show user email

    I run a private community so we’d like to expose user email addresses (perhaps make it optional) in profiles. Aside form the fact that users are already a tad confused with editing email and passwords in “Settings” as opposed to “Profile” (they’ll get over it), I don’t want to have to create a custom field for email addresses, forcing users to enter their email a second time either during sign-up or after. I’d rather just expose the entered email in a profile.

    Also – Any suggestions on getting custom user fields to render url’s nicely? I’d like to let people enter their web page, etc and have it show pretty as a link (doesn’t currently)

    I’d just add a custom profile field called “Public Email” or the like, which would allow users to optionally provide an email to display publicly and also allow it to be different from the one they used for registration.

    I have done the same. Shame that all profile fields deal with everything as plain text. Can’t make links look pretty or email addresses function as mailto links

    @mikepratt, you’ve to write a plugin that add a function that add a fields that contain $current_user->email or a thing like that
