We removed the "gender" field but we would like to add additional fields that can be filled in by text box such as "name" and "organisation"
version is Version 18.104.22.168
There is a plugin called Profile Extender available for the beta here: https://github.com/vanillaforums/Garden/tree/master/plugins/ProfileExtender
You would have to backport it to run on 22.214.171.124. If you don't feel comfortable backporting it, you should not run the beta to use this plugin.
