User Profile Issues

Two things related to profiles I'm not sure are issues or something I have overlooked -

1. When creating additional custom profile fields, two of them now have the same order number. When creating the new profile field, it doesn't offer the option to increase one number, but now shares the same number as the one before it. Tried deleting the profile field and recreating, and this still remained the case.

2. When user changes profile preference from "receive no emails" to "allow emails", another user is still informed user is not accepting emails

I've run the usual block and template clean up de-cachers with no change. Wondering if anyone has any insight on these issues. Thanks

1- We are aware the ordering of CPFs (and other things in ocPortal) could use some interface work. Enough orders are shown but you may need to go through pushing everything up a bit to make the gap you need.

2- This option relates to staff emailing, there is a separate profile option relating to what usergroups members will accept PTs from.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
