    Hi guys! I'm new here.. but I didn't find anything around this topic

    I want to add more fields to each member. And I did that in the admin, but I can't add my Profile picture field that I want.

    Do I need to make an add-on script to get that added to a user?
    And if so.. how do I go around doing that?

    I can make a link to that profile picture page under Useful Links probably, but how do I get the username and password for the user that is already logged in?
    so I can use that when I add a picture to the database..

    And last question:
    How do I print out the fields in the "data" field in the user_table on a regular website?

    My first thought is just a standard upload form on your member profile page. A couple of things that come to mind are:

    1) Does the profile picture have to be secure at all or can anyone see it? If not, just store the image as the membername.jpg (for example)
    2) Any restrictions / processing on the image that is required? (downgrade to 640x480 jpeg, etc)

    Have you thought about using a CMS or Forum system which has all this stuff done already?

    PHPBB3 has a memberlist feature.
