    I have created a "User Profile / Custom Field" named "Website" and another field named "E-mail".
    These fields are not "linked", but normal text.

    How can I make these fields, so that they will appear as click-able Links ?

    Many thanks!

    See the "value display HTML" option. You can use that to adjust the output appearance.

    For an email, the href value should be "mailto:{$value}".

    Note that it's important that you use the email/URL value match requirement for these fields.

    can I keep the "nofollow" for the E-mail-address, so that search-engines will not index the "E-mail-address" ?

    <a href="mailto:{$value}" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">{$value}</a>

    I guess I will have to skip the "target="_blank" when using it for an "E-mail address" ?

    <a href="mailto:{$value}" rel="nofollow">{$value}</a>

    Nofollow doesn't make sense on a mailto link - the email address itself would still be "indexed" regardless.
