Hi Folks,

I wanted to add an author web page URL property to the author profile, after scanning source code I see that that authorprofile is woven right into the fabric of blogengine.

Does anybody know of a simple clean way of doing this, I was thinking about sticking the value in one of the other unused fields, birthday for example - not the most elegant solution.

Thanks in advance

That's a decent idea to use an unused field.  I don't think you'll be able to use the birthday field, however, since that particular field requires a valid date be entered (unless the field you're looking to add is also a date field).  But you could use just about any of the other fields ... FAX number, for example.

Thanks Ben, that's exactly the field I used.

I've been playing around with BE offline for a month now having started with no Dot Net experience, it's remarkable what you can do with this once you start to dig.

Thanks again.
