Hi there i Recently read three articles which showed me hoe to edit the user registration and edit forms. I am using joomla 2.5 have succsessfully changed the field labels and added a new field.

However now the two fields i have edited are stuck on optional field and I want them to become required fields. There are no Error mesages.

In the backend of the site i can change the parameters successfully in profile10 plugin

But the settings dont change in the front end nothing happens in the front end

When the user is presented the form the changed fields are optional

Hi Dave,

It's really hard to say what could be causing the problem with the user profile plugin. To be honest, it's been quite some time since I wrote those tutorials, so I'm a bit rusty.

I am, however, happy to look into this for you. Because of the situation, I'd really need to have access to your files and do a custom review.

If you wanted to email the information I need to review, please email it to As this is a general email account that we use, please be sure to post a comment at the bottom of this page so I know to look for your email.
