Help? Network wide user profiles / profile fields (2 posts)

    Hi.

    I've used non-MS WordPress a lot and more or less MS versions too. At the moment I'm setting up a bit bigger network and things are starting to look hard.

    I plan to have hundreds or even thousands of blogs on the WP multisite installation. I think I have got almost everything running smooth but now I started to look at user profiles and didn't find any network wide extended profile plugins.

    How can I accomplish to set custom fields, lets say text fields like "Skype", "Foot size" and radio button selection "Select option fitting best to descripe you" and all that sort of field into user profiles and registration?

    There's tons of plugins that are ment for single sites but I need them for every user on the network, not separately for every site admin to install.

    I think buddypress is one option, but I sure wouldn't want to install whole buddypress just to get extra fields into user profiles because other than that, it doesn't suit my needs.

    Hope that wasn't too confusing.

    To put it simple: I need extra fields into user profiles. No matter do they sign up at example.com, site1.example.com or at site352.example.com

    In part because profiles are network wide, I'd imagine.

    Probably manually.

    If you make that a plugin and have it be in mu-plugin, it'll be on for all sites on the network, so essentially it'd be across the board.
