    If I make a hack (probably just a b2profile hack), will I have trouble updating to future WP versions?

    I think it depends on the nature of the "Mod" (we're trying to get away from the term hack -- but that's another story).... if any of the core files were modified, then odds are, yes, you may have trouble with upgrades since you would have to re-hack the file each time.
    The best thing you can do is to ensure that you keep track of all your changes so that you can re-do it again later if needed.

    Thanks Alot.
    I was just going to add a "webcam" field in the profile. and maybe, make the profile viewable to others.

    To tell the truth, I am very super new to php. But yet, I managed to add my own fields to the profile, and let them actually show up.
    But I have no idea where to start with the "Display Profile" thing. I'd want all users to have their own little profile page, thats viewable by anyone.
    Any tips?

    lol, ok, I've found out that you can view profiles. Just not your own (sorry for my newbish self).
    So, thats the first thing, I need to somehow get by. And non-registerd people should be able to look too.

    @ogmwtf: perhaps you try and tell me, how you managed to add working custom fields. I still didn't find out, what i'm doing wrong, and i don't get any here either. Please visit this thread (http://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=6763) for further info...
