Is there anyway to add, delete, & modify the fields in the user profiles? Also, is it possible to add a field that only appears under a certain group of members profile. Thanks a lot, Christopher Kiernan

There are some hacks around that do this (e.g. the forum plugin includes code for additional fields in the profile). Geeklog 1.3.8 will also include an extension to the Plugin API so that plugins can add their own fields without having to modify core Geeklog files. bye, Dirk

There's some information in the plugin documentation. Unfortunately, the Plugin Developers Guide hasn't been updated with the new Plugin API functions that were introduced in 1.3.8.

There's a sample plugin and the current version of the forum plugin also uses the new API functions.
