It looks like you have not added the _UE_EMPTY definition in your language file.

So there should just be an empty space there, so that the column will be blank?

Nick,

I'm completely lost, even with the detailed documentation and I'm wondering if the documentation mixes terms or if I'm just getting it wrong. For example, I'm trying to make a creative tab. This page...
www.joomlapolis.com/content/view/151/37/
..says that as the "field title use _UE_EMPTY"

OK...so I'm defining a field (I've done a tab already) area, I've got 4 fields to start with...

* Type:
* Tab:
* Name:
* Title:

So for type I put "Editor text area", for Tab I put "About Me" as that's what I've created already, but what next?

The documentation (pg 52) suggests that it is the "Name" tab where you can make use of the underscore system and that "Title" is the label for the field you are creating and will appear on the page....but it then goes on to talk about (under "Expert notes") about default "title fields"....is this different to the "Title" field?

Is there any chance that this page...
www.joomlapolis.com/content/view/151/37/
...could be updated with an example that has example value for every piece of info when defining a field (Type, Tab, Name, Title, Description, Required, Show on Profile, User Read Only, Show at Registration, Published, Size, Max Length, Cols, Rows)...or even just a note as to what of these can be left alone?

Sorry, but I'm going "field" crazy.

Phil

Yeah I definietly was....I was getting a bit confused between the name and title fields and where the underscore code goes. Only comment I'd make about the screen shot is that '_UE_EMPTY" and '_UE_REALLY_EMPTY" are actually just meant to be both '_UE_EMPTY' aren't they? And published set to 'Yes'?

(edited...sorry I figured out quite simply what the other issue was)

Thanks again for the screen shot.
