If you would use JomSocial for a school website you like different types of profiles for students, teachers and other staff. Obviously the fields used in the teacher's profile are going to be different from the fields in the student's profiles. OR You are running a music producer page and you want to have songwriters, bands, producers, singers and so on. Again the fields in one profile need not be meaning full for other user types.
JSPT is the most exciting extension for JomSocial users. It extends JomSocial with Multiple Profile Types functionality.

- Starting from JomSocial version 1.6, our extension works in hack free mode, so you can update JomSocial without any breakdown.
- Required PHP 5.2 or greater.
I am using this component together with Jomsocial and AEC and it just works great. Every user is redirected during registration to choose his profile type which is connected to a AEC-plan and a whole bunch of access-settings.
Installation and setting up of this component is very easy and smooth. I did not need any support so far. If you want to have multiple profile types with different profiles/data published in profile, different access levels to apps and stuf, this component will suite your needs best. Additionally you can sue the AEC integration to set up payment plans for every profile type.
I believe that this component is essential for people like me wants to create a community where users are of different types and with different access rights.
Development and updates are also frequent and support always ready and alert to respond to everyone. Truly admirable!
