Mandatory custom profile field NOT displayed on regist

Post by Oscar TWH »

Hi Folks, hope you can help me out....

Have created an "anti spam" custom profile field, "enter a number between 1 and 100".
Untill recent this worked like a charm, no spam members at all.
Recently the forum got flooded by spam members (10 a day).

Setting for the custom profile field:
Display profile field: No
Display on registration screen: Yes
These settings results in not displayed in profile and not in registration screen, where I expected it to be displayed on registration screen and not in profile.

Display profile field: Yes
Display on registration screen: Yes
These settings results in displayed in profile and in registration screen (as expected)

Not sure when this behavior first occured, recently added Danish language files, and added translation for this custom profile field.

Anybody have a clue?

Have you got 'required field' selected?

EDIT: FYI these are the settings that work for me.

Display profile field: yes
Display in user control panel: un-checked
Display on registration screen: checked
Required field: checked
Hide profile field: un-checked

I think you will find that the custom fields will display in the user profile to admin but not to the users themselves.
