How to add fields (or what am I doing wrong?)

KristVB's picture

I've added and enabled content_profile. When I now click edit on the user page I get a tab called "content profile" and if I click on that I get a standard node creation page.

Now I wanted to add some fields, so I went to content types - content profile and clicked "manage fields". I added some fields.
These fields are however not visible when I go to the "content profile" page of a user, nor are they when I edit the content profile node. What have I overlooked? What do I need to do in order to make the custom fields appear on the content profile page?

It turned out that I indeed had to enable a whole slew of permissions. Thanks for the hints.
