Here is what I did to create the custom field. Administration | Users, click on "Manage Profile types". There is only one "Basic profile"; I clicked on Actions | "Add/Edit fields". On that page, under the "Custom fields" section, I clicked on "Add a field...". I added a field.
I then restored my Sitefinity database (I have some scripts to roll-back the database to a previous state; helpful while in development). I was expecting to see the custom field again since I thought all the config values are stored in ContentViewConfig.config.
BTW, when I do edit a user, I still see my custom field. So, it is kind of there, just not showing up in the section of the Web site where I originally created it.
Maybe if there are some good read about this, can you please send me the links. I'm probably a bit confused as to how this works.
