    I need to link users to module builder content types...almost like an add to favorites, but there's no Guid or Guid[] option in the user profile custom field creator.

    Any followup on this?  What's recommended, a short text?

    No, I hate not getting even an acknowledgement on limitations like this.  However it was in my feature request roadmap...so maybe 5.3 will even the playing field.  That should be along sometime this month.

    If you NEED it right now...what I do is use a long text field (for Guid[]) and shorttext for Guid...super ugly, but no other choice.

    Use the included Newtonsoft JSON.Net library to serialze\deserialize the Guid[] object to the long text field.  I can provide you the code if you would like...but it's a 1 liner :)

    Yeah, I'm pretty much going to do the same thing.  I have the code.  Thank you!
