Issue with Edit Profile changes being saved even if required fields are left blank

Reported by: jeffsayre's profile jeffsayre Owned by:
Milestone: 1.1 Priority: minor
Severity: Version:
Component: Keywords:


This is the way it is supposed to work: Any profile fields you add after a user has registered will be blank until they go into their profile and add data to them. If you have set a profile field as "Required", the next time a user edits their profile data, they will not be able to save their changes unless they have entered data into any required fields.

But the reality is this: If you save your profile without all of the required fields filled in on the page, it still saves the data. The activity stream doesn't say the changes were made, but they are. You see the changes when you view the profile--and you notice that the required fields are still not populated.

Whereas this message does appear if you do not enter data in a required field,

`There were problems saving your information. Please fix the following:
"[Name of required field shows up here]" cannot be left blank.`

the incomplete data set still gets saved if you navigate away from the screen. Even though the message would indicate that you cannot proceed without entering data into required fields, you do not actually have to do so.

See this thread for a little more insight:

Moving this to 1.1 milestone as it requires some re-writing.
