[SOLVED] Unintended Validation of Profile Element

6 months 1 day ago - 5 months 4 weeks ago #328465 by Keith_w
So, I have CB setup to provide profiles for users, but a confusing error has been causing users a problem.
As part of an address tab I have a Single Drop-Down selection for Province/State. When registering or editing a user profile, if the selected entry is over 10 characters (which there are many) it throws a validation error. Now, I have not setup any validation rules, due to the Parameter Validation tab not showing up in the field settings. The documentation (www.joomlapolis.com/documentation/277-community-builder/reference-guide/18438-field-management-edit) states that such a tab should exist, but it is non-existent right now.

So, it is clearly running some undesired validation rules and the back-end settings are unavailable. Is this possibly due to a missing add-on (not a base feature?) or is my installation of CB not functioning correctly? Maybe a plugin from the package? Just looking for some hints at this point. I WOULD like to set validation rules for some of the elements of the profile, so if there is a way to repair the setting tab, that would be ideal.

Thank you,
Keith

Was the field originally a Text field then changed to a Select field? Sometimes the only way to fix that is to change it back to Text, set Maximum Length back to 0, then change it back to Select.

Thank you krileon!
That seems to be exactly what happened, and has allowed me to fix the issue.
