  • Required Profile Fields not required

    (Just upgraded to 3.5 from 3.07)

    Some, but not all of the "required" fields in my profiles are being enforced at new registrations.

    These are several different types (text box, etc.) and there does not seem to be any one type that is problematic.

    The "required" fields that are being missed are shown as "required" in the User Profile Field Manager.

    Any idea what I can do to make all of my required fields "required"?

    To troubleshoot this, the first thing you need to do is remove any hacks or plugins, then see if you still have this problem.

    If so, reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server.

    Next, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it. Do you have the same problem?

      same problem here...If the above works for ataraxia and solves the problem,i ll make it to!

      No time for reverting templates just to see "if" it works...Too many hacks/plugins!
