Can't Edit Profiles
« on: July 09, 2011, 12:34:51 am »
You have to post at least 5 posts before you can edit your profile, and this is for everyone on my website--members, admins, global mods...is there any setting in the Admin section that can fix that? Thanks.

Go to Admin > Permissions
Click "Modify" across from "Regular Members"
Scroll down on the right side and look for the Member Profile Section
Make sure you have "Own Profile" checked  for "Edit Account Settings, Edit Additonal Profile Settings,  and Edit Custom Title (if you want that one)  Clicking on the     icon will show you what each of those Permissions does.

Then go to each of your other Membergroups Permissions and set each Membergroup as you want it for those same Permissions.

That's not the question I was asking...it kept saying "You must have a few posts before modifying your profile,"

I know.  That is why Im telling you that you need to check Permissions.   

When you signup for a forum and it is installed the Default settings in Permissions for the Newbie Membergroup are to not allow editing the Profile.  Im attaching a screenshot to show you that there is nothing checkmarked in that section in Permissions for that Membergroup that will allow them to do so.    The next Post Based Group (Jr Member)  also does not have those Permissions checked.    None of the Post Based Groups do and for a reason.  As Admin you have to decide what permissions you want each group to have and set them accordingly.
   
Here's an example of how it works:
Newbie -  0 required Posts
Jr Member - 50 required Posts
If you set the "Jr Member" to be allowed to make changes to their Profile settings then once those in the "Newbie" Membergroup make 50 posts and are then set as a Jr Member they will be able to edit their Profile.     If you WANT the Newbies to be able to do so you have to check mark those settings.     Without them checked this is going to keep happening until they get up to a level that DOES have them checked..
