    Does anyone know of a way to force existing users to complete newly created mandatory profiles fields?

    Boy, other than coding a special function that checks to see is a user has filled in all required profile fields upon log in, I’m not sure at this point. What does happen in this scenario though is that the next time a user edits their profile data, they will not be able to save any changes unless they fill in the required fields.

    You could ask them to update their profile data, but that is always a hit or miss proposition.

    hit or miss proposition

    I find it’s much more of a “miss” proposition. I may have to wipe up a little plugin for this!

    This would be a great plugin. Anyone created it? Especially useful for getting people to enter location details for mapping.

    what do you mean by “miss”?!? All those mandatory fields are useless if not forcing the user to fill them in (which right now does not happen)
    It’s a complete lack of logics, don’t you see that?

    right now you have so-called mandatory fields which actually are optional, cause no one, no where, can force the user to fill them in!
