I suggest you ...

User's who post to classified have a profile page, this should be 'Prettier" to encourage more signups

Users who place ads have a profile page that comes with it, but it should look better to encourage people to want to place ads. The profile is important because it becomes a sort of "Portfolio"

Links such as social follow buttons should be able to be added, as well as fix up profile links to look better too.

Why is there TWO different profile forms to modify a profile?? These shoule be conglomerated into one page to save time, confusion and the need to have two pages to modify a profile:

There should be a way to get your own profile link such as mine:

http://www.fliporium.com/profile/fliporium-828

A user has to go into their ad and click their own profile link to get this URL. The process of getting a profile link URL should be easier for members to share the link. It's too hard to figure this out for a many.

Thank you for listening,

Chris

    You can always create a "User Menu" and put it on the left column of the page "Your Ads" and other pages that you would like, that way it will be accessible from any page concerning the user's "stuff". That's what I did for mine.

    @Janich - that looks really good! thanks for that, can we make an article (or maybe you want to do a guest post on our site) with that solution? we'd then publish that on our blog and/or in FAQ section - what do you think?

    For anyone interested, I made a plugin to render the profile fields on a Joomla com_users page (to keep profile editing 'intact').
    Example: http://i.imgur.com/ZuPcHBn.png

    Note: It is not testet with Joomla registration process, but report any issues in github.

    Plugin: https://github.com/janich/plg_user_djprofile

    It would be nice to allow this to be completely integrated in the easy social profile edit. I.e. Collect all the info in easy social, then pass over to classified section. Maybe make part of the app?

    I think you're right.
    Having an "Account" page and a separate "Profile" page only gives confusion.

    I will try to create a Joomla user profile plugin that displays the DJ classifieds profile fields in the Joomla profile page next week.
    If everything goes well I'll post a link to it here.
