diving deep into Drupal 7 as a noob and wondering how can I create a field (select list) in a new content type that pulls in all the users in the system? I'd like to be able to associate certain content with a person, not necessarily as the author, but as the "person in charge of this area" for example. I'd like to show the persons name and some other info from the "people" area of the Drupal 7 core.
I am thinking I should use the people area rather than create a new content type for people. I added new fields to the "new user" form.
Any thoughts or ideas?
Did find https://drupal.org/project/references module that seems to work great. However, I still would like to know if using People area is best for storing all users / people associated with my Drupal site. Thanks :)
