Troy Spiral added a record in IP.BoardMigration of Previous - Required Fields - Fails at Registration[quote name='Troy Spiral' date='10 July 2009 - 12:44 AM' timestamp='1247201046' post='1823742']
For ages now on my board I've wanted a way to track who is helping promote the community.
In 2X I added a custom field required at registration, which now reads in user profiles as:
example of a user account with this field:
So far so good.
But, when new users try to register this custom field no longer is shown. Despite it not being shown the error is given:
[quote]The following errors were found:
Referred To DGN By: (This Field Is Private Only Visible To Admins): Cannot be left blank[/quote]
In the ACP the choices for this field are:
[quote]Include on registration page?
If 'yes', the field will be shown upon registration.
Field MUST be completed and not left empty?
If 'yes', an error will be shown if this field is not completed.
Why is this not showing on the registration page? What do I need to do?
I'm assuming I could just remove this field and make a new one, but the data in that field goes back several years. I have a custom query that searches out that info and displays it, having to make a new field would screw that up right?
This one is particularly important to me as we have a credit-based system where we recognize the people that have helped recruit new members for the board by putting their name in that filed. I'd really hate to have to delete the field and start over
