In the official documentation it explains how to let users customize user fields in the frontend, such as:

<label for="bio">Bio</label>
<textarea id="bio" name="fields[bio]">{{ currentUser.bio }}</textarea>

However I set some user profile fields that are Radio Buttons and can't find anywhere on how to output the field options in a form. I want to do something like:

<select id="radioButtons" name="fields[radioButtons]">
  {% for option in fields.profile.myRadioButtons %}
    <option value="option">{{ option | title }}</option>
  {% endfor %}

But obviously 'fields' isn't a twig variable. Is there a way to do something similar to the above?

You can access the field using currentUser.fieldHandle; and the 'labels' and 'values' of the field by looping through the options attribute. You can also set the selected state by checking each option for the option.selected property.

<select id="radioButtons" name="fields[myRadioButton]">
    {% for option in currentUser.myRadioButton.options %}
        <option value="{{ option.value }}" {% if option.selected %}checked{% endif %}>{{ option.label }}</option>
    {% endfor %}
  • Exactly what I wanted. That answers other questions I had as well. Thanks Douglas Commented Apr 23, 2015 at 17:57
