    User Roles

    I have a couple different groups that I target with my CP site. Is there a way that I could add a field to the theme-profile.php that would allow my users to select a role that describes their purpose for using my site? I know I could probably tie it to the pre-defined WP user roles and then use a plugin to define what each role is capable of doing.

    For instance one of the groups that I target are business owners. When they go to update their profile information I would like to present them with a couple available roles like startup or small business. If I could somehow tie that into the WP roles of Author for those that choose startup or Contributor for those that choose small business. Then modify the role capabilities to my desired user levels with one of the available user role plugins.

    I guess my question is, does anyone know how I can allow the user to define their own role, and make it an option using the cp file theme-profile.php?
