[SOLVED] Empty field still won't hide (Config says hidden)

8 months 3 weeks ago - 8 months 2 weeks ago #322109 by Backstein
I already checked an older post in the Archive but it seems to have been a much older version at the time and doesn't solve my problem. I knew the option in the Configuration.

But despite the fact that I selected Show Empty Fields: No some of them still show up in the profiles.

Is this evitable?
Empty Tabs are chosen as visible.

Be sure to also empty "Empty Field Text" parameter. Aside from that you'd need to be more specific as to what empty fields are still showing. Some fields simply can't be empty.

Thanks for your reply!

The fields I'm talking about are fields I created and in no way required.
Empty field text has no entry.
The empty fields show up with the title and no content behind.

What else do you need to know?

No idea what to tell you. Works perfectly fine in my tests. My guess is the fields aren't actually empty (e.g. custom layout in the Layout parameters of the field). All that should be required is setting "Show Empty Fields" to "No" if the field is actually empty.

Wow.
I'd have never had the idea that layout code was what the field makes 'not-empty'.
Okay. thats definetely the reason, because there's a [cb:if] in all these fields.

I guess there's no workaround, isn't it?

Thanks for this!

Surround your layout with an IF check that the field isn't empty before applying a custom layout. That should resolve the issue. Example as follows.

[cb:if cb_myfield!=""]
LAYOUT HERE
[/cb:if]
