Compulsory profile field update

Compulsory profile field update was created by tivie
hey there. First I want to congratulate this awesome community and tool. So far, it has been working like a charm. It's extremely powerful and flexible and its a must to every joomla administrator.

Now, for my questions... I'm running a website for 1st year Vet students. Using CB, I created a Tab containing fields regarding the classes they are attending this semester. These fields are "required" and users can't register without filling them.

Since classes change every semester, in the next January, I will create new fields (containing the new classes) and delete the old ones.

How can I make that, in order to old users successfully log in, they will have to update/fill these new fields?

Like a pop up or something with a form that unless filled properly and clicked "Confirm", prevent users from accessing the restricted content areas of the website.

Thanks, in advance, for the attention

You can't. I'm working on a new incubator project to force redirect users back to profile edit if they have incomplete required fields however no idea when that project will be done as am preoccupied with more important tasks at this time, but for the time being you'll just need to inform your users to complete their profiles or use login redirect to send them to profile edit.
