Re-create the "location" profile field

Post by Mike-on-Tour »

If you have deleted phpBB's default profile field "location" and are experiencing problems while saving profile data into the Usermap you find a guide to re-create that profile field here:
  • Open the ACP, select the "Users uand Groups" tab and click the link "Custom profile fields"
  • Scroll to the bottom of the pages which has opened and select "Single text field" from the dropdown select field and click the "Create new field" button
  • In the input mask now visible enter phpbb_location as the "Field identification"
  • In the section "Visibility options" select "Display in user control panel", "Display on view private message screen", "Display on viewtopic screen" and "Display on memberlist screen"
  • In the "Language specific options [en]" section enter LOCATION into the "Field name/title presented to the user" text field
  • Click the button "Profile type specific options"
  • In the input mask now visible enter "20", "2", "100" and "Any character"
  • Click the button "Language specific options"
  • If LOCATION is displayed for all languages just click the "Save" button, otherwise enter LOCATION for all languages and then click the "Save" button
You should now see the "location" profile field again and saving data into the Usermap should work without any warning or error messages.
