Hello,

How can I arrange it so that a registered user can see a field but cannot edit it and a special user can edit this field?

Best regards,

Derk ter Beek

Hi,
you can set a field to be not available in edit profile and available in backend. So the admin can edit this field from backend.

If you prefer to allow the admin to use the frontend then you can set the field to be not available in edit profile, and enable the parameter called "Admins can show not editable fields in frontend" in Easy Profile options

Hi,
you can set the field to be visible in profile page (and not in edit profile).

If you want to show the field value in edit profile view then you can use following workaround:
- Create a field of type HTML delimiter with the same name of the field that you want to hide
- In description put a code like this
{user field_alias displayed}
(replace text "field_alias" with the alias of the field that you want to hide in edit profile), the code {user field_alias displayed} will be replaced with the value of the field that you want to not be edit by user
- Set this new field to be available only in edit profile page
Now in edit profile page the user will see the HTML delimiter field that load the value of the not editable field
