Hi,

Im due to relaunch on xenforo monday (finally)...

I have a custom field (radio buttons) and i need to preselect one as default. It is critical that I be able to do this with the field in question. I have a few custom fields and for the most part it doesnt matter about defaults but this one field is crucial.

How on earth can I bodge this?

Thanks

depends on where you use it...in a template you can define a default behavior and change it only if user selected something else
Example:
Code:
<xen:if is="{$visitor.customFields.messagebackground} == 'white'">
  <div class="messageInfo primaryContentwhite">
<xen:else />
<div class="messageInfo primaryContent">
</xen:if>

I know how to get to the data in templates. My point is, I need a pre-selected default on register. The default atm is no selection... I need one selected.

Jake has helped anyway, thats exactly what i need - just cant get it working quite yet but will keep trying.
