[campsite-support] Extra Fields in the User table
  • Hi all,

    I am writing a template that uses the pref1, ... pref4 extra fields of the User table.
    Inside a form, I have added a .
    For testing, I selected the corresponding checkbox, and checked that it was written successfully to the database field.
    After that, I visited the page again, and found that the box is not checked allthougth the field has a 'Y' value in the database.

    So am I missing something?

    And how can I show the value of these pref1, pref2 ... variables in the private area?
    The campsite manual shows that this can be done by the campsite administrator. So is it a matter of configuration and do I have to write some coding?

    Thank you

    Maroun

    This is a bug I'll fix in the next campsite version

    You can't

    You would have to modify the admin interface to add these fields in the user
    edit form.
