    Hello, i have my new install of VB and very nice it is too

    What i would like to do is this:

    add new fields to user profiles, which i have done, but how can i get these new fields included in the search page?

    Also i would like to create a two tier board, a general user and premium user, the premium user would get added features.

    I beleive this can be done with groups?

    Also can this be tied into a payment system so a user can upgrade with out admin input?

    if you could point me the direct of docs hacks that may help with this i would grateful
