Profile fields default is stuck on public

    Hey,

    I have installed the latest version of buddypress and the latest version of WP. When I go to users > profile fields and set the default visibility to either ‘logged in users’ or ‘friends’ this doesn’t change on the register page. There every field has the value of being visible to anyone and worse: you cannot change it. Toggle to a different one, as soon as you register all the fields are public. What could be going wrong here?

    Looking at the function that retrieves this label value it’s checking for an array name that doesn’t exist so is defaulting the label to ‘public’ This probably needs looking into, I’ll raise a ticket.

    Cool. Yes, the problem is only limited to registering, because registered users can change these privacy settings without any problems. But I want to give registering users already the possibility not to share every account detail.

    Off top of my head can’t recall where I was up to in testing ( I’ve created a ticket on the clear issue I found) but check carefully that you have set the option to allow user override on the profile field settings in backend.

    Hey Hugo, yes, I have done this. But no matter if user override is set or not. At the registration page everything stays public, even if the admin forces it to private. Is this only me who has this problem? Can you keep me updated on this?

    @jordas Yes I’ve created a ticket for the issue and it looks like a general issue rather than just affecting you.

    Thank you so much for this, especially the conformation I’m not loosing it :p

    I will try and see if I can hack the register page of my theme so it has the ‘private’ setting as a default.

    ok, what I just figured out two is that if you do not close the boxes with radiobuttons on the register page. It actually saves your choices correctly. So actually the ‘close’ option on the register page sets it back to the default, public. Still, I would like that default to be private, or better to speak in terms of ‘loggedin’ or ‘friends’…
