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?
