#7428 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

XProfile: a group's first field becomes last after save

Severity: normal Version:
Component: Extended Profile Keywords:

Looks strange nobody yet reported this, I searched but nothing similar found, so sorry if it's a duplicate.
Anyway when you have multiple profile fields, if you update the "Name" field (the main field, the one with id 0 on the bp_xprofile_fields table) it will order automatically as last. I took a look at the DB and on the bp_xprofile_fields table the field_order becames e.g. 3 in a 3 fields configuration.

I've seen that happen with other profile fields too. After updating an existing profile field, *sometimes* I've seen it move to the last position in its field group.

I didn't submit a bug report because I wasn't able to consistently reproduce the issue, but now I confirm I can reproduce it editing the Name field (field_id=1) with BuddyPress 2.7.4.

Yep. Good report, I can recreate too.

For a long time I've tolerated this bug, but the time has come to fix it. My first guess would be that the zero-based indexing of fields within the fieldgroup (this concerns all fieldgroups) is to blame. BP's logic would read that the field your editing has a falsey value for $field_order, thus BP considers it new and pushes it to the end of the field list. Will investigate further.

Edit: my guess was correct. Patch incoming.

  • Keywords has-patch added; good-first-bug removed

I've attached the smallest patch possible which fixes the bug described. Further sanitization of data types is needed in the saving of profile fields (and groups), but that's for later.

#5 @Boone Gorges

I've noticed this too. The approach in 7428.01.patch seems sensible as a first step toward better sanitization.
