I have added a custom field which displays in the postbit (this works)
I then did a mass insert into xf_user_field_value with the correct field_id, user_id and value.
For the mass-inserted ones it does not show on the front-end until I go into the user and click save. Then it shows as expected.
When I go into the user the field is there and the value I put in is also there so I am guessing by saving I am triggering a cache-rebuild of some sorts.
I have tried rebuilding the user cache in tools but to no avail. Is there another way I can cause all the users to start displaying the value?
