Can I put custom fields in search result?

Is there a way to put a custom field in the search result?

Currently it lists the following:
Name, Address, City, State, Postal, Country, Email, Phone

On my registration form I have made a custom field 'Company'.
Can I add this field to the search result?

You can do this in two ways...both using a "Profile"

1. Customize the "Advanced Search" results listings:

  • create a Profile and check "Used For" = "Search Results"
  • add ALL the fields you want included in the results
  • go to Advanced Seach and select your profile in the "Search Views" dropdown (upper right)
  • do your search

2. Create a custom Profile search form
