creating a placeholder on drop down lists on profiles

    Hi,

    If you add a field to the registration profile which is a drop-down list and you would like the first item to be ‘Please select an option’ *and* you mark the field as required, users do not have to do anything.

    They are not forced to ‘select an option’.

    This is because when generating the HTML <option> code, a value is placed there. If, instead, the value was set to “”, then this feature code work.

    Look through the code, there is already the notion of ‘is default’. I have a patch which adds the notion of ‘is placeholder’.

    Is this wanted in the core?

    Thanks,
    Anand

    p.s. also created in trac http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5184

    Please add the patch to the ticket so that core devs can decide if they want it.

    @haykayltduk check through tickets if you haven’t as there was one a while back on issues with setting default select options or something to do with that aspect of profile fields.
