profile fields not behaving correctly

  • I’m on trunk 1292 and when I add a value to a profile field and then remove it, the field value doesn’t change. If I change the field value it’ll change.

    For example, I established a “Degree” field in the “Education” group. I went to the user profile screen and added the word “Education” to the degree field and hit submit. I viewed the profile to be sure it was there, and then went back to the Education group tab, deleted the value of the textbox, and clicked submit. When I went back to the user profile the field still displayed with the work “Education” as a value. The same goes for a set of checkboxes I have on the “About Me” group. I checked 2 boxes, submitted, unchecked, submitted, but they still show on the user profile. None of these fields are marked as required.

    I noticed it this morning on trunk 1290 and upgraded fully to 1292 and retested before reporting. Has this been seen before or is it ticket-worthy?

    I’m way confused as to what you are talking about.

    1) You enter info in a profile field. Save the profile.

    2) The info shows in the profile field.

    3) You change the info in a profile field, leaving it blank. Save the profile.

    What happens then?

    If I leave it blank or deselect checkboxes (or any applicable action that means leaving it blank/unused) the information does not disappear from the user profile. The previously active checkboxes still show, the deleted information in the text field still shows, etc.

    If you go back to the “edit” screen the checkboxes will still be deselected and the text field will still be empty, and hitting “submit” will give you a success message, but the info will still show on the viewable profile.

    Checking this now.

    I’ve reset my email domain registration limitations if you want to test on

    Found the problem, if you update to the latest it’s fixed.

    Well, that was easy. I just try and clarify things and it gets hunted down by Andy. I could get used to this.

    That fixed it, thanks!



    somewhat of a similar issue:

    xprofile fields are filled in, but don’t show on the profile,

    changes made to certain fields don’t “save” or “show” on the profile

    using trunk from a couple of weeks ago… and haven’t kept vary god track of the trunks

    proly a few new ones since…. but my install gets more and more customized as time goes..

    these updates, are they only to bp-xprofile files? or would i want to get the whole trunk?
