Hello PW Lovers! i know that i can edit user template (Profile) and add as many fields as i want,
But i wanna know if i can create pages and associate them to users, For Example: what if i have a users system & each
user has a profile + custom page with personal info, and any user could edit his own page - Thanx

I'd really like Processwire to have a robust page based permissions system rather than just template based out of the box.
If the page tree is compared to a file system, it would be nice to be able to set owner (user), group (role) and public permissions on a page and have this propagate to sub-pages unless explicitly over-ridden.
With a large site, it's quite possible to have multiple sections that use the same templates, but where editing needs to be assigned to different people, for different parts of a site.
I've seen some proofs of concept that have never been updated or maintained, so I'm sure it can be done, but this is a bit of a show-stopper for me with an otherwise excellent CMS.
I might be able to have a go at something myself, but since this is security related, and I haven't had a go at module development before, it would be really handy to have something robust that just works.
I discovered Processwire a little over a week ago and have been playing around with it ever since. Going through the tutorials, creating templates, pages, etc. and see what a nice system it is. However, I'm led to believe that's it's not meant for user-centric sites, and by that I mean a site where you expect to have hundreds/thousands of users and expect them to log in, update their profiles, submit content, create galleries, message each other, chat in the Forum, get email notifications, etc. etc., you get the idea.
I was trying to update the Profile page last night by adding fields for First Name, Last Name, Profile Pic, and a bunch of others and realized that it's not that easy to do. There's not even a template.php file for the Profile page. Am I just not seeing it because I'm so inexperienced with the CMS? Or, is Processwire really geared more towards sites where not much user interaction is expected?
