Can additional fields be added? If so, what are the data types and permission possibilities? Is the profile available to all visitors, including search engine spiders? Would I be able to block profiles from viewing based on the user group status of the member?
My forum is a niche that has pros and consumers for members. I would want the pro members to be able to use the profile as a sort of business directory - more than just a listing - similar to having a full-page ad in the phone book or newspaper. So, having search engines crawl and index those profiles would be good. But I would want to be able to block search crawls of consumer members and only give registered members the ability to view consumer member profiles.
