In the back end the locations are the edit screen for users in the user manager and the My Profile view found in the Admin menu.

Revision as of 15:48, 26 July 2012

Profile plugin is a new extension in Joomla! 1.6. It allows the addition of supplemental fields in the registration and profile forms of the com_user front end and in the user create/edit form in the back end.

A simple example plugin with the name User - Profile is included in the basic Joomla! installation as a proof of concept. Much more complex plugins are possible.

The example plugin takes advantage of on the onContentPrepareForm and onUserAfterSave events.

Multiple profile plugins may be included and will be rendered in sequence.

There are four separate places where profiles forms are used in core extensions, and each of these four can be manipulated separately if that is desired. The two locations in the front end are the user registration form and the user profile edit form. In the back end the locations are the edit screen for users in the user manager and the My Profile view found in the Admin menu.

This page shows an example of a second plugin, named profile5. It adds a single field called something.

This is the file structure

profile5.php
profile5.xml
en-GB.plg_user_profile5.ini
en-GB.plg_user_profile5.sys.ini
/profiles/profile.xml

The supplemental fields are created within the profile.xml file in the profiles folder. Note that this file name is "profile.xml" NOT "profile5.xml", but inside the file the fields and fieldset names ARE "profile5".

Profile5.xml controls whether the field is required, disabled or optional in the forms. Since profile5.php says to treat backend create/edit the same as registration only two sets of options are required, register and profile.

PLG_USER_PROFILE5="User - Profile 5 "
PLG_USER_PROFILE5_XML_DESCRIPTION="User Profile 5 Plug-in"

By installing profile5 you can add new fields in addition to the ones in profile. You can also control which view levels see those fields. Alternatively, you can write a more complex common plugin with varying controls for different groups.
