i have been researching much about taxonomies and usermeta. So taxonomies are to categorize things up for posts (animals, plants..). That makes it easier to search posts through them.
Now here is my question: I want to add custom user fields like gender, university, age etc..
Should i define them as usermeta, taxonomy (categories: gender->male,female) or custom taxonomy?
At the end i will have a overview of all existing users to search them by gender, university etc. Also the admin can always add a new university for example.
So which way is the most common?
I hope you guys can help me out for my decision.
Thanks in advance
