Thoughts on “Adding Custom User Profile Fields in Joomla 2.5 – Step 1/3 – Copy the Plugin

    • I double checked steps 1 to 9 of your instruction and everything was OK. However I was not able to install the new profile 10 plugin in my J 3.4.8 version. I was getting following messages:
      JFolder: :delete: ……
      Path: /home/xxxxxxx/plugins/user/profile/profiles
      JInstaller: :Install: File „/home/xxxxxx/logs/install_56c06fd187511/profiles10“ does not exist.

      What could the problem be?
      BTW. Line 6 of your tutorial 1/3 is a bit unclear to me: Has the file profile.xml to be renamed to profile10.xml itself or only the code inside the file?

      Thanks for your help.

  • Hello. I having a trouble uploading my new plugin. I followed the instructions above change it into profile10 still has an error stating, “Plugin Install: Another plugin is already using directory: /hsphere/local/home/a897837/filestatecorp.com/mrtshops/plugins/user/contactcreator“. Any ideas how to solve this? I will really appreciate your help.

    • Hello justine,

      Thank you for your question. I found a similar issue with a different plugin in the official Joomla Support Forum, where they are offering several solutions.

      If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

      Thank you,

  • It is not a bug
    You should edit the profile10.xml file.

    At line 16 you should find this
    <folder>profiles</folder>

    at line 17 add the following

    <folder>fields</folder>

    In this way Joomla will know that the plugin also needs the fields folder
