The problem is that I have a register page where I have 3 fields, Username, Email, Password. There is another page with some more fields which are required. So when I try to register a user form my register page I get errors about my required fields which I don't have in the register page. How can I skip them form cheking on my register page, but still have them as required on my profile page? Thank you in advance!

  • "The problem is that when User try to update the profile and already have a file uploaded." What's the problem? Are you getting an error message?

  • Yes, it's saying the field cannot be blank. If I remove the field completly dosnt show error message, but doesnt want to update the other user data. I think is because is cheking some where in the model about this field.

If they're required, then they're required... it doesn't matter if the form is being submitted on the front-end or back-end.

The easiest solution to this would be to simply provide that data as hidden inputs...

<input type="hidden" name="fields[myRequiredField]" value="default value">
