Member profiles private vs. public

    I’ve been searching for an explanation and I’m not sure I’m using the right language or where to look. So here goes.

    I want my buddypress members to have a profile page that only lists publicly information they choose to post. I also want it to be like a resume so that when they author a post on the site all posts are linked too on this page. So someone searching that member can see how active they are, what articles they have written, links to their own website with contact information.

    I don’t want the public version of the profile to be all the activity/comments or groups/forum comments on the site. I want it more like a bio page.

    I would be grateful for not only an answer but also corrective language if I am just not asking the right question.

    I’m using WP 3.5 Buddypress 1.6.2

    Ben,
    Thank you so much. Not part of buddy press. Interesting.

    Wwhere would I go to control what is shown on that page for each member to the public.

    What term would I call that page? It would be wrong to call it their profile. I want to read more about it but am unable to search properly.

    It’s called an author archive page and it is automatically generated by your theme more info on that can be found here:
