Multiple User Types? Is It possible?

Hi there!

Here's what I'm up to...

I want to have a MU site that has different user types, and different fields for diffferent user types (some are the same, but many are different).

Each user will have a standard profile page, regardless of any other criteria, BUT each user will have the option of creating an additional type of "profile" page.

Say, for example that I have six different blog types - one for each type of special "profile" I want to show. In reality, this is actually a blog that displays the completed author's information in a special blog template.

So when the user signs up, they fill in the basic info, but THEN they have the ability to fill in additional fields somewhere (additional profile fields?) that would only be displayed on this special blog template.

Am I on the right track? Is this the right direction or is there a better way to implement this? I'm kind of a newbie so I can't help that I'm making this more complicated than it really is...

I'm using wordpress 2.8.2

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out with this :slight_smile:
