    Hello,

    Request guidance on how to display profile fields that are not part of the “primary base”. and get users to input the information asked for.

    Why can they not be part of the ‘Base’ group ad thus part of the initial signup?

    If a case of not wanting to have too many signup fields – a bad thing – then best I can think of is you would need to create a function that checks on one of those extended profile fields or all of them against the loggedin_user_id and if any returned an empty value then run a redirect to the users profile edit screen with a message request to complete the mandatory required fields on that page.

    What screen are you looking at? The registration, or the member profile screens?

    Hi,

    Thanks for your inputs. Hugo’s suggestion of having all user fields merged into the Base group appears more convenient. Paul, thank you for pointing me to the Profile >> Edit tab.
