User-Profile versus Company-Profile ?

    There is a User-Profile named XenForo, which is more like a Company-Profile rather than a User-Profile.

    Is it possible to be flexible with Profile-Fields ? I mean like setting-up User-Profiles and ALSO Company-Profiles ?
    Like having different Profile-Fields for Companies and different Profile-Fields for Members ?

    I would like to be able to set-up User-Profiles and Company-Profiles.
    But having different custom profile-fields for each of those.

    Many thanks,

    XenForo is a member, for posting announcements and such. I do not believe that it will be very good to have both, but you can set this up in .htaccess with url rewriting.

    I mean something like this:

    *************************
    User-Profile:
    - Gender
    - Date of Birth
    - Location
    - Occupation
    - Homepage

    *************************

    Company-Profile:
    - Annual Revenue
    - Company Address
    - Export-Quota
    - Manufacturer / Supplier / Distributor
    - Homepage

    **************************

    Or is this something which would rather be accomplished by using Social-Groups ?

    Ah right. Erm, Maybe extend your idea into custom profile fields?

    yeah, perhaps Custom Profiles would be the solution for you? :) So long as there is an ACP setting to control what displays I don't think it matters what Custom Profile fields you put in there.

    This seems like a better solution.

    Profile Fields controlled via permissions.

    well, that is what I tried to ask in my initial post:

    Whether it is possible to customize Profile-fields for two different types of members, like having both "User-Members" AND "Company-Members".

    So you mean have some fields only show up for one type and some fields only show up for another type?

    I assume so, my answer would be usergroups.
