#8487 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add visibility and required controls to the WordPress profile fields

The new WordPress profile fields are great and are really helpful in the project I am involved in which involves extending buddypress to Multisite.and I’ve already extended them slightly in a plugin I’m working on

But they are lacking two key features namely the ability to change visibility and also toggle if they are required or not. This should be easy enough to add I imagine. And would really improve their usability…

I disagree:

  1. these fields are not required in WordPress
  2. visibility would probably be a pain to manage as these information can be used by some themes to display info in comments, post author vcard, etc...

I'd like to see a patch or detailed arguments shared by more than one people to prove I'm wrong. For now I'll close this ticket.
