#1236 closed enhancement (fixed)

[patch] Custom validation methods for profile field data

Reported by: swinton's profile swinton Owned by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: minor
Severity: Version:
Component: Core Keywords: has-patch


It would be nice if the xprofile component provided a means of validating profile field data using a custom function.

For example, a profile field 'Post code' should only contain post codes.

This could be achieved by applying a filter on the value returned from is_valid_field in BP_XProfile_ProfileData.

3rd party plugins could then validate the profile data as required.

A suggested patch is attached.
