When a User Custom Field is set to:
Editable after signup =
Required at signup =
any user who signed up before the field was made Required cannot save their profile.
I’m not sure it makes sense to require a field to be filled when it is invisible! Required seems to also apply when a profile is filled in. Which is okay, unless it isn’t accessible.
Obviously making that field Editable after signup =
true. But I really don’t want it visible once people have joined (in our forum this is “Why do you want to join?”).
