I must give a area towards the account edit page in wordpress. The area should contain one checkbox and really should simply be edited through the 'admin'.

Does anybody know where I'm able to find this or the way i can perform this?

I've looked car Wordpress codex however could not find anything useful..

Thanks!

I had been just reading through this article regarding how to do that which you have pointed out above i.e. adding a area for any account. The content experiences each step in regards to what is needed and just how that process can be achieved. If you're acquainted with php/html you need to have the ability to get this to change fairly rapidly.
