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.

Everything is upgraded to latest version and component works great
Thank you so much for this component,
I was really hoping that we would be able to create custom fields,
does anybody know how to do this?

how can I use this with version 2.3?
I am not ready to update at this time but would like to integrate this component with my current version.
I tried changing the version file but the component will not work.
Is this possible to do?
