Implemented Empty required and not editable custom fields...

    I just added a custom field to one of my sites, set it to required and not user editable.

    I go to enter it into my profile, and it's not there. After a few clicks of confusion, I realise it's because of the not editable flag.

    My suggestion is to allow users to edit blank custom fields, or recently added custom fields, even if they aren't user editable (but required).

    Your suggestion contradicts what User Editable implies. Use the "Editable only once" option and make it user editable.

    But then they can change it after they registered, if they already set it.

    They should be able to set it only once...

    Read my post again, and follow the instructions. It does what you want.

    If I set that then they can set it at registration ans then change it once...

    That's not how the option works though. As soon as it has a value, it's not editable by the user.

    Yup, I was thinking something different for some reason...

    Thanks all, sorry!
