The user profile of WordPress can be fairly easily adapted to add your own
values. So you can add the necessary custom fields according to
your requirements. Here
is how you do it.
Most free themes do not have a custom author.php
file, WordPress automatically callback to archive.php
or index.php when someone views the author profile

the author, and it provides no personal information about the author. It is
recommended that you copy your archive.php and save it
as author.php and modify it.
