Can anyone help with custom user-profile-page guidance? I've had trouble finding advice.
For my WP website, I'm asking people to register and allowing them to go to their profile page (which is default WP design outside my theme). New users are default set to Contributor, so they can post to a group blog (moderated submissions). There are 3 (related) issues I need to get resolved:
1. I'd like user profile page to be in the design of the theme the site uses. I have installed Userextra plugin to get extra data fields. I'd like user profile pages to have everything on one page, in my site design, and also to include the user's Gravatar image.
2. Currently when (non-admin) user goes to his/her profile page, one of the tabs visible to them is Comments. This shows list of user comments and includes their e-mail addresses. Privacy is an issue and I don't want that; addresses must be hidden. (With custom profile page, this will perhaps be a moot point.)
3. Because I'm allowing new users to be Contributors, I need to give them a Post to Blog page. Default WP Write page is what I'm currently showing, which shows Comments page link and thus leads to visible user e-mail addresses. So I need a Post to Blog form that's in my site's theme.
Thanks if anyone can point me in the right direction to figuring out how to resolves those issues!
