Need to have non-editable user profile fields (4 posts)

    Any ideas on how I might set one or more custom (usermeta) fields that are displayed in a users profile to be non-editable (e.g. read only) except by an admin user?

    I am trying to set up a membership site where a members number and other parameters need to be assigned by an admin but visible to subscribers, just not editable!

    Thanks

    The Cimy User Extra Fields plugin will let you add fields to the user profile that can only be edited by an admin.

    Unless I am mistaken Cimy User has its own tables and does not use wp_usermeta? The reason I want to use the standard usermeta table is so as to also be able to use other plugins such as WP-CMS which also use it.

    You are correct - it uses its own tables.
