Drupal user profile custom fields

asked Nov 1, 2013 in Website Builder by DruNew (1,930 points)
I need to add custom few fields on my Drupal user profile page. I want to add a custom name field to my node create form. The field should prepopulate with a list of names to select from as user fill in the form and then create a node. I know this can be done using custom PHP, but is there a simpler way to do it. Also please note that I want different users to use the same node create form however I don’t want the users to see each other’s fields info.
Any advice is appreciated

You can do this by adding a taxonomy with the pre-populated terms and then you can use the tab "Manage display" for user objects to add a term reference field which uses this new taxonomy.
