Hi All,

I'll start with what I am trying to achieve. I have a SS system with 3 groups, admins, partners and clients. I wish to leave the Member fields as-is with admins, but I want to have different fields for partners and clients, which appear and can be edited via Security > Members > Edit Member. I don't want irrelevant fields to appear for any given member either, so the popup will be different depending on the group the member belongs to. The Security > Members list can remain as it is.

Is this possible, and if so, any pointers on how to do this?

I'm also building a module for the partners, I can keep it all in there, just thought it would be nice to have it accessible from the Security section as well, and already have a PartnerMember to store the extra details.

More on this, I also have Partner content pages, each partner has exactly one page, would it be better to build onto that, having it all editable from Site Content? That would be the easiest way I'd say, but I'm not sure if it's the best approach
