Since a few months I try to have a closer look at Drupal 7. After the release of Alpha 6 I decided to start a clients project based on Drupal 7. Two weeks ago we discovered a more or less strange problem.
In Drupal 7, as far as I knew, the profiles module will disappear or integrated in the new field api.
So I thought it would be a good idea to create the user fields as "fields" not as "profile fields". That worked perfect. It was possible to see the fields in the user edit dialog and in the user profile. It was also possible to access the fields via the views module.
But ... what is with the registration dialog? Usually it is a good idea to let a new user fill-out the necessary fields in the registration dialog. I didn't found a possibility to configure the appearence. I searched on drupal.org and I found this node: Display user fields on registration form. The last comment was a hint to this node: Port of Field Permissions to D7.
I tried the Field Permissions module in the 7 dev branch, applied the little patch #19 ... and ... it worked.
On one hand - Thank you very much for the solution.
On the other hand - this feature is so necessary and so common ...
Anyway - I am happy :-)
