This is on RC2 by the way....

If you give someone permissions to edit users Profile Options;  the ones designated viewable by users, editable by admin only;  do not show up for them.

I want my user members designated to be allowed to edit profiles... to be able to see these fields to edit them. 

How do I make a profile field that can't be edited by the user... but also isn't admin only?




I guess a clearer question would be... how do I add more privacy options to custom fields?

A major overhaul of the privacy system and permissions systems, ultimately, would be the required answer here.

First step would be adding a new permission, then modifying all the checks in all the areas this impacts (which is surprisingly numerous IIRC). It's not a quick job at all.

sounds like fun... I guess I better get started.

Are you familiar with PHP and just want a little bit of guidance, or want someone to talk you through every change that needs to be made?
