Display of more profile fields for some account type #6105
The following screenshots are from two different account types. The first is a personal page and the second a public forum. The first allows modifying the additional profile fields (marital status, political views, etc.), while the second does not permit this, as there is no access to these fields.
If there is no possibility to alter these additional fields --because there is no access to them-- one would expect that none of these additional fields are displayed on a user's profile.
Regardless of the selected account type (i.e. personal pages or public forum), this information is displayed if any of these fields are populated.
Real scenario, I imported a public forum account and it contained random strings in two of these additional profile fields. I cannot explain how these fields were populated.
When I consequently wanted to remove the information, it took me several attempt to figure out how to access these fields that seemed to have disappeared at the time.
