Im looking for a module that allow to add fields to users profiles, with the same functionality and flexibility of CCK for nodes; I've actually activated the profile module, but the fields type doesnt fit my needs.

For example, i need to have a node reference field on my users (for nodes that they belongs to - follow), but in general, profile's fields doesnt allow multiple values at all..

I've tryed content profile module, i guess will be my last choice, i dont like to have the user profile and the profile node as two separate entities.. and look a bit overlìkill for me.

Any idea?

For Drupal 6, these are the only two options I know of, either use content_profile and use aditional nodes or stick with what profile.module can do.

In Drupal 7 however, users are fieldable, which means that you can attach any field that you can attach to nodes too. Additionally, there is the http://drupal.org/project/profile2 project, which provides something similar to content_profile. However, profiles are in that case not nodes but a custom entity.

  • Well, content_profile is not my best bet for my case, but with few hooks i've been able to fit my needs.

You can try Advanced Profile kit module..


you can go "yourpage.com"/admin/config/people/accounts/fields and create some custom field for your profile and then go to "yourpage.com"/admin/config/people/accounts/display to custumise how it looks in drupal 7 ,also use http://drupal.org/project/pux to setup how it will look like.

in drupal 7 you can use the number of values that you want (http://drupal.org/node/1312562 just to illustrate ) for each field when you edit the field in manage fields tab. also if you wanna put together some fields use field collection http://drupal.org/project/field_collection. here you can find the video tutorial how it works. http://droplabs.net/video/field-collection-in-drupal-7.
