  • Custom Profile Field questions

    Just to confirm, when you create a custom profile field the "Set Default" option means only that new registrations will have that default set, not existing users, right?

    Also, the "Field Required" option means only that the field appears during registration, it doesn't have anything to do with whether it's set by default?

    So if I create a new profile field and want the default setting for all users to be something other than NULL, I have to run a query to change the new field for existing users?

        Actually a minor point of clarification: It seems that when you create a custom profile field the default value is actually an empty string, not NULL. Is that always the case, or is that determined by one of the settings when you add the field?

          Then is it not possible to do something so that all users have the default value?? Any thing at all? I need the default value to show on all users, if at all possible

          Also, can anyone tell me if there is a way to set it so that all users have the WYSISYG editor on by default?

            To set the defaults for new users:

            Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> User Registration Options -> Default Registration Options

            To reset options for existing users:

            Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Execute SQL Query -> Automatic Query

            Then choose the appropriate query from the drop-down box and click on 'Continue'.
