Overhauled and extended the Employee Directory options available at “Users / Your Profile”. Added many more user profile fields including social networking options. Created a custom post type called “Biographies” which shows profiles saved under the “/bios” directory. Each time the user profile information is updated, it will update the employee summary directory and detailed biography post. Administrators also have the ability to restrict access by role to click through to the detailed employee profile pages (this is done also in the “Users/Your Profile” area when logged in as an Admin only). Also, custom field labels in the User Profile area can now be edited.
