comment Can i use two different user tables for on WP install?
what is on their 'page' ? why would a normal private profile page with added fields etc not be adequate? why a custom post type ? why not just a page ? CPT's should only be used when there is special functionality/template invloved (eg events pages). Even then 1 custom post Type would do it. If they edit the CPT pages then they get heir own page of that CPT. If not, if just displaying fields, then one page with coding behind it. Only use wp ms system if they needed to create multiple pages themselves that were public. Going ms one would still have theprofile/page/cpt/privacy questions.

It sounds like your exhibitors could be 'subscribers'. This is the lowest default wp role with only read access and possibly comments if you allow that. Using a role/capability plugin you could create an even lesser role (called exhibitor perhaps) that cannot even comment. They certainly do not have 'publish' rights. Read more here: codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities Perhaps it would help you if you thought of the 'roles' as different sections of the table - almost like different tables. They appear in different tabs on the user list.

comment Can i use two different user tables for on WP install?
Hi Barry, As far as I am aware there is NO way to have different user tables since you need a user table first to decide which kind of user the user is. IE: wp, before it knows anything about the user, has to look the user up somewhere so that it can tell what kind of user it is and only then can it 'do' something different. The different 'doing' is managed by the wordpress capabilties. The only other way would be to have two wordpress installs - one for the main site and one for the ordering system.

comment Plugin Repo: Why do some plugins get version charts while others don't?
Hmm - I think wordpress does know - when your website does version update checks I'm pretty sure it sends current plugin version info
