• Q: When will be supported mandatory accept of terms and conditions field?

    A: Has been always there: is as easy as adding a checkbox and setting “equal to” rule to YES.

    Q: What the Database options do exactly?

    A: Basically you can:
    – empty or drop extra fields or extra fields data (inserted by users)
    – reset or drop plug-in’s options

    Q: Yes but will this affect other data? It says “WordPress Fields table”, this is scary.

    A: No, it will affect _only_ the data produced by the plug-in. Really.
    Also keep in mind that if you do NOT have to restore default values or uninstall the plug-in, then you do not need to touch them.

    Q: Cimy User Extra Fields is not compatible with “Themed Login”, how can I do?

    A: The reality is this plug-in IS compatible with WordPress 2.1 or greater and “Themed Login” NOT, so it’s NOT a Cimy User Extra Field’s bug! However I have tried with a little success a workaround to make it works, but first please understand that this is totally untested and unsupported hack, if you want a better one ask the author of that plug-in to support new WordPress!
    If you still want *my* personal and unsupported hack edit the plug-in “Themed Login” and do these 3 modifications:

    1. at line 773, after “global $wpdb, $wp_query;” add this:
      global $errors;
    2. at line 811, before “if ( 0 == count($errors) ) {” add this:
      do_action(‘register_post’);
    3. at line 871, before “A password will be emailed to you.” add this:
      <?php do_action(‘register_form’); ?>

    Q1: I got “Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted [...]“, why?
    Q2: I got blank pages after activating this plug-in, why?

    A1: Because your memory limit is too low, to fix it edit your php.ini and search memory_limit key and put at least to 12M
    A2: If you do not have access to your php.ini you can try this workaround (might not work)

    Q: Your plug-in is great, but when you will add support to add more than one choice in radio and dropdown fields?

    A: This feature is here since ages, for radio field just use the same name, for dropdown field read instructions in the add field area (in the plug-in).

    Q: Uploaded images are not resized, why?

    A: You should add php-gd module (under Ubuntu install php5-gd package).

    Q: Why big files are not being uploaded?

    A: Please check this website, tells you how to change your PHP configurations to fix this issue: http://www.radinks.com/upload/config.php

    Q: Why admin user cannot see all fields even if I set to do it?

    A: Probably you installed the first time WordPress on PHP4 and you experienced this bug: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/8317
    To fix the problem you need to create another administrator user and change admin user to another role and then back to administrator.

    Q1: I’m using your plug-in on WordPress MultiSite per-blog installation and when I register one user all Extra Fields are ignored, why?
    Q2: I get this error: ‘Fatal error: Call to undefined function cimy_uef_mu_blog_exists()’, why?

    A: Because you missed to move cimy_uef_mu_activation.php file please check carefully the installation steps.

    Q: I’m using your plug-in on WordPress MultiSite per-blog installation, I’m registering users on one blog but they appear on the main blog too, why?

    A: Because WordPress MS is designed like that and I can’t do anything about, however all extra fields and relative data are saved per-blog.
    Since I had already a long discussion with an user that didn’t believe this, don’t bother me to insist on this topic until you prove I’m wrong.

    Q: I’m trying to use a regular expression in the rules, but the check does not work as expected, why?

    A: Usually means your regex is wrong, please study how to properly build it: http://php.net/manual/en/function.preg-match.php

    Q1: I do not see Extra Fields under the page user-new.php can you add there too?

    Q2: How can I import new users with Extra Fields data into?

    A: Unluckily due to a WordPress limitation I can’t add Extra Fields into user-new.php but you can quickly add all the users you want using my plugin: Cimy User Managerhttp://www.marcocimmino.net/cimy-wordpress-plugins/cimy-user-manager/

    Q: I cannot edit neither delete some Extra Fields, usually after the 10th one, why?

    A: Your PHP server is probably limiting number of $_POST elements, Suhosin for example does it. Please allow at least 500 or more vars.
    http://www.hardened-php.net/suhosin/configuration.html#suhosin.post.max_vars

    Q: I am trying to change the fields’ order, but whatever I try it doesn’t work, why?

    A: First of all you need to select at least 2 fields if you want to change the order.
    Secondly if you change for example field n.1 to position n.3 be sure that field n.3 goes into another position and finally that a field goes into position n.1
    In short: every field should have a new position or at least the same one, but no positions can be skipped or be present multiple times.

    Q: When feature XYZ will be added?

    A: I don’t know, remember that this is a 100% free project so answer is “When I have time and/or when someone help me with a donation”.

    Q: Can I help with a donation?

    A: Sure, visit the donation page or contact me via e-mail.

    Q: Can I hack this plug-in and hope to see my code in the next release?

    A: For sure, this is just happened and can happen again if you write useful new features and good code. Try to see how I maintain the code and try to do the same (or even better of course), I have rules on how I write it, don’t want “spaghetti code”, I’m Italian and I want spaghetti only on my plate.
    There is no guarantee that your patch will hit an official upcoming release of the plug-in, but feel free to do a fork of this project and distribute it, this is GPL!

    Q1: I have found a bug what can I do?
    Q2: Something does not work as expected, why?

    A: The first thing is to download the latest version of the plug-in and see if you still have the same issue.
    If yes please write me an email or write a comment but give as more details as you can, like:

    • Plug-in version
    • WordPress version
    • MYSQL version
    • PHP version
    • exact error that is returned (if any)

    after describe what you did, what you expected and what instead the plug-in did :)
    Then the MOST important thing is: DO NOT DISAPPEAR!
    A lot of times I cannot reproduce the problem and I need more details, so if you don’t check my answer then 80% of the times bug (if any) will NOT BE FIXED!

    • Dear Marco,

      I’m trying to use your plugin with a different approach but I think that it’s doesn’t work. Let me explain the scenario:

      The plugin is working very well (thanks for that!). I’ve made some changes for the registration form (wp-login.php?action=register) and the fields are there.
      But for a special need, I bring the registration form for the front-end using a shortcode in a page, calling the wp_login_form() function and here, the problem happens.

      When I call this function, I just see the original WordPress fields but if I use the registration area (wp-login.php) all fields are showed (including the “new” fields from Cimy).

      Do you have any idea about it and/or any clue about how can I put the original fields and the Cimy fields in a page for a user register?

      Thanks for your support!

      PS:
      WordPress version: 4.9.1
      PHP version 5.4.24
      MySQL version 5.0.10
      Apache version 2.2.26
      Environment: iMac Mavericks

    • rich-text not rich anymore in frontend view

      This Plugin really helps me out and i manage to get all data out that i need, but i can not find a way to display paragraphs from a rich-text-area. actually, an image that i inserted through the wysiwyg was showing, but not s or s. i tried output via sanituze, but then also the image disappeared. so i’m back to $langtext = get_cimyFieldValue($user_ID, ‘LANGTEXT’) ;

      in the backend, all formatting is visible, but i can not manage to display formatting in the frontend.

      i also have been checking wordpress filters, but also this ( http://wordpress.org/support/topic/trying-to-modifyallow-html-in-profile-description ) did not change anything. (not even in the wp-bio-field)

      PLEASE help me to display the RICH data, that is obviously stored.
      maybe i just did not get how to use the $my_tags for p an br correctly, my php-knowledge is not so deep …

      i would be really grateful for a pointer in the right direction.

      thank you very much!

    • usually i first check if i can use something and only if it is useful to me i am going to make a donation. kindness could also be a factor ;)

      but following the details in the documentation more thoroughly solved my problem. sorry 4 bothering & thanks for great plugin.

    • Love your plugin! One question – I have the the option to let users create their own password but on the registration form it stills say at the bottom a password will be emailed to you. How can I remove this message? Thanks!

      • Unluckily that is NOT the ‘standard registration’ at all, my plugin fails to detect is a registration page and does not apply its css, you can see that also text field are not filling up the space correctly.
        You are using a plugin that modifies the url of the registration page, that is interfering with mine and preventing the correct recognition.
