Member details configuration
This file can be used to configure additional fields to members of a group.
Groups can be configured so that members can have up to 15 custom fields associated with their membership. These fields can be used to store additional, arbitrary information.
Details fields are associated with the group membership, not the user directly. So each group can get its own set of fields.
This file can be configured for who can edit or view the fields.
When editing this configuration file in PageSeeder, pressing ctrl-space displays autocomplete options to make editing easier.
