    Am just wondering, is there any ways that i can add fields into an author profile instead of those provided?

    yes, i do understand in order to do so, i will need to alter the tables in mysql, however, i am just wondering how to go about it via plugin or anything else instead of hacking into the source code? also, i would like to add "author's picture" into the profile...

    thanks in advanced.

    Here's reference to two plugins:
    http://dev.wp-plugins.org/wiki/Userextra
    http://dev.wp-plugins.org/wiki/Usermeta

    In the coming 2.0 version of WordPress 'extra' user data is being put in the wp_usermeta table so to add user information will not require you "to alter the tables".

    A discussion about usermeta on the hackers email list can be viewed at:
