  • Hi

    I am on 1.8.1b and added profile manager from latest download from github about two weeks ago

    when I try to import custom fields it just shows the error 'No custom fields available for import'
    doesnt give me the option to browse or select the file to import.

    any ideas? I had a search on google but couldnt see anyone else with the same prob


  • @mdkberry the "custom" fields are the custom profile fields defined with the default profile field manager of elgg. There is no way to import field configuration from a custom file or something.

  • Hi,

    I don't know if I'm doing something wrong... But I'm not able to create new categories, nor profile types. When I try to create a category a weird code shows up on the screen:




    \n\t\t\tAdd a new category\t\t\t<\/span>\n\t\t<\/h3>\n\t<\/div>\n\t

    \nName:\n<\/td>\n \n <\/td>\n<\/tr>\n



    How can I fix this?




  • Hi GeorgeB. I have the same problem, buy I supossed that it's because it has been reported to have problems with elgg 1.8.1. Are you using this version?

    Anyhow, if someone could help or has any idea how to avoid this problem before the next version of the plugin arrives, it would be very appreciated.

  • Hi,

    that's the version I'm using... 

  • ok thanks Jeroen,

    next question, how do I hide profile types and remove the 'default' profile type from the registration page. I currently have default/male/female as my profile types but also administrator is a type which I dont want seen or selected by a new user.
