I'd like to create a profile page (visible for every visitor) for every user on my website. There should be displayed some personal information about the user (name, date of birth, bio...) and some things related to their activity on the website (favorite articles, own articles...).
I've already added a lot of fields to users (wich have to be filled in during the registration) in the People > Account settings > Manage fields section and created some views with the Views module in order to display their favorites etc.
I'm struggling with the next step. I'm not sure whether I should create a profile page myself or use the Profile2 module (wich is installed at the moment). First of all, I don't know how I can create a profile page myself. How can I set this up, assign it to a user...? Secondly, I'm not very convinced by the power of Profiles2: I managed to add fields to a user's profile page, but I can't find a way to add blocks or views to it. A nice feature is the 'private' field option, but I'm wondering if that can't be realised without the module.
Can you help me in finding a good solution?
