I'm really sorry for gravedigging this, but I need a bit of help... I have tried @fafvin's method, and it works most of the way, but the fields entered into registration do not seem to carry on through into the user profile. The only way they can be edited is by an admin (i.e. me), is there something I did wrong with adding the mysql tables?
This is what I have entered (it's a text field just like Username):
Theres already a plugin first last name. Study that plugin, that will be better than hacking the core. Just my 2 cents
I'm looking for this kind of functionality too, but it needs to be customizable. About Me is a good template, but I don't need any of the school and career information (doesn't apply to our younger members), I need some basic information like birthdate and I'd like a host of other fill-ins and check-marks as well.
@Aolee thanks for the pointer. I'll take a look there.
someone already uploaded a plugin to add first name and last name in the reg page. you can check this out.
