[SOLVED] Profile modification by management on read-only field - Front end

5 months 2 weeks ago - 5 months 2 weeks ago #314944 by scubabyss
Hello krileon.
There are a number of field in the profiles of my users that are read-only.
I have some managers that are within the moderators of CB :

- It appears that they can edit the profiles of member in frontend
- But they cannot modify the read-only fields.

For that, I shall give the moderator a backend access with appropriate rights.

Is-it normal that moderation cannot be done on read-only fields ?
1) If not, what did I miss to get it working ?
2) If yes, I will add it in the feature requests

Sorry if this point is already covered, I do not have found it.

Best Regards

Read Only fields can not be edited anywhere except backend. For frontend moderator only edit you'd need CB Privacy as it provides such a feature. There are no plans to change the read only behavior at this time.

Thank for your very fast response.
And great, I have CB-privacy and I finally found how to do it.

I know, not very clever, I let the field as read-only....

It easy to do :

1) Change the field setting to set "Read-Only" to "No"
2) Go to the tab "Integration" and set Edit Display to "Moderator only can edit display" (You can also create a customize user group or user access that will have this privilege"

It works like a charm.
