Re: Plugin: Allow additional or custom profile fields
Has anyone noticed this problem:
If you make the additional (i.e. custom) fields “required”, it works fine on register page, but not on profile page. That is, on register page, you get an error if the required field is not completed by the user, as it should be. On the profile page, you get no error message – if there is no value in the field, then the form simply doesn’t process – no error appears.
(Note: we implemented this field after there were already hundreds of registered users, which is why we have several hundred fields that are “blank” even though the custom field is required. However, it would be nice if we could get legacy users to fill in that field any time that they edit their profile from here out.)
