Description

Sometimes you want numbers in specific formats. e.g. phone numbers, percentiles, grades, age etc.

Admin-defined masks e.g. ###-###-#### may be a good solution.

Admin-defined digit range (say 9 to 11 digits for international phone numbers) may also be a good idea.

We have considered and (I think) previously passed on the idea of phone number-style profile fields due to complications around how strict (or loose) the validation would have to be. I don't think we've seen this suggestion before; it's an interesting one.

To consider its inclusion in core, I think the suggestion would benefit from wireframes or mockups for the "add new field" screen to explore what the UI might look like.

Here's how I am thinking about it:

There are some reserved characters for the mask: 0, # and *

0 forced a certain number of digits by padding the number with non-significant zeroes.
# represents a digit
* represents digits (any number of digits)

Usage

Number entered: 5

@DJPaul Does the mask info and UI wireframe make sense?

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
