    How do I add a second "profile" form type to the Forms Editor page?
    I can not use a "signup" form type because the member isn't signing up for anything... just editing profile fields.

    If I continue to use the "signup" form without using a Profile form type it returns error

    Unfortunately only one profile form is allowed currently. Do you want to split user profile into different forms?

    Thanks for the reply Alex.
    Yes because i have 10-12 custom fields and with them all on the "Edit Profile" page, it's not exactly easily seen to update these particular 10 fields. In addition, if its on a separate profile page, I can show the additional "edit profile" page of fields only to members with particular subscriptions. Doesn't seem like a big deal.. but it helps by decluttering the edit profile page.

    I was able to create a new profile form by changing the URL of "new signup form" by adding profile in "&type=". it stored it in the database with a record ID, but the URL shows profile... if only if there was a way I can recall it by a custom code or some other manageable method... Or another method?

    I requested something similar in the bug tracker- Alex said "We are implementing alternative solution now: ability to add fields/inputs to products so these custom fields will be linked to user invoice and not to user profile. That must be clear.
    Also these optional fields may provide ability to increase/decrease price. It will be like selecting t-shirt size in e-shops."

    I'm not sure by this if it will cover the ability to show/hide fields in the profile page though...
