#7274 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Accessibility: Mark required fields as required in xProfile admin

Reported by: mercime's profile mercime Owned by: mercime's profile mercime
Milestone: 2.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Core Keywords: has-patch


Add (required) to the Name label of:
Add New > Profile Fields
Add New > Profile Field Group

While we have great error messages in case users forget to add the names of the field of field group, let's ensure that new users know that they are required to fill up those fields to prevent any error in the first place.

The alternatives of adding attributes for the input fields like aria-required="true" and required (for HTML5-ready documents) instead only benefit screen reader users. Adding the (required) text in the label would benefit everyone.
