The out-of -the-box functionality included with the Relate+ templates for user profiles is excellent. Some companies may wish to extend this with additional information. This is very easy to do. I wanted to test this capability myself so I implemented it and thought it might be useful to post the steps I followed. The sample below is pretty basic and simply provides a text field for entry of a string. However, it should provide the necessary information to help get you started down the path of implementing different types of controls desired for your solution as the process is generally the same.
In order for the education info to be rendered for the profile update \Templates\RelatePlus\Pages\MyPage.aspx with some translation logic for globalization and a label field. In my case I put this in the "personalInfo" div tag right below the similar code for “Lives In” (search for “lblLivesIn”).
Again, this is a simple example for a basic edit field but it should help get you started down the path of bigger and better things. Enjoy!
