About User

This component adds an additional profile subpage named About showing some basic member information like gender, age, etc. retrieved from the member's account data.

enter image description here

The accessibility of the About page depends on the mode which was chosen on the account settings page. The three available options are public (visible for everyone), friends only, or nobody (except of the account owner and administrators).

Note: About User can NOT be used in parallel with the Custom User Fields component. Whenever Custom User Fields gets enabled, About User will be disabled automatically.

It works, but as the translation for the german language is still not 100% complete, it shows you the word "age" instaed of the German word "Alter", if you are using the German language.

The user can not customize the information in the following form. Have you found a solution?
