    Is there a way to add additional fields to a registration form so when you have a forum, members can have more detailed profiles? For example adding social media links, address, business name, etc.

    • Hi Lily,

      The plugin doesn’t provide customization options for the registration form but there are several plugins our there that do allow to define additional fields. One of them is Profile Builder if you’d like to give it a try. In any case I’ll take the suggestion into account.

    So this is not based on bbpress? And if isn’t why write a complete forum system (gargantuan task) instead of just piggybacking on bbpress?

    • Hi Pascal,

      Good question, have a look at the FAQ documentation section under How is it built? and another aspect is outlined on this post. There are requirements that are different from those that underly bbPress.
