it is working now
i edit the field

1. viewing access to public instead of "super user"

2. viewing "value" instead of "label"
 thus you get correct the  ID in the URL ... www.miniatoys.net/fr/component/comprofil...ile/553-someusername

3. To make it simpler / automatic to save the author when ,
in the
Editing TAB 
then Form field TAB

set to hide the prompt "Please select"
thus the value (current author) is auto selected and you can just click save

Anyway the above will soon be redundant , will add link ability to our "Profile field" ...





Hello,

when an item is created it didn't automatic save the author that links to the Community Builder profile.
the value (current author) is not auto selected
and i have to complete manually the «  Author Profile » field and click save .

How can i fix this issue?

this must be in the CORE package
- so we are making 1 new field out of this forum topic 'User Profile link' that has option to link to

1. Joomla profile link
2. CB profile link
3. JomSocial profile link

with configuration to add
- custom text
- user name / image , etc
- items count or other info



After upgrading to new Flexicontent version, i have some new troubles:
- i didn't find "User Profile link" to link to CB profile link
When an item is created it didn't anymore save the author that links to the Community Builder profile.

- regarding Author's Items (more by this author)
language association not working (redirected to 404 error page) when i'm in the authored item (by user) and i click to change language. is there a bug for this broken link?

- in frontend the edit button doesn’t display anymore once a item was edited

- and i lose I lose the alphabetical order in each drop-down menu in my submission form

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hello

the changes were made to "Joomla profile" field
which is renamed to "User profile" field

but they were not included in this 3.3.1.
they work but need they need cleanup

we have links to Community builder and Jomsocial profiles
for current user (item's author) or of a specific user selected in item form (configuration in the plugin)

> - regarding Author's Items (more by this author) language association not working (redirected to 404 error page)

Yes, but this was never working, i mean it was not working in previous version either, we need to fix it, just it was considered not so important and was neglected


> - in frontend the edit button doesn’t display anymore once a item was edited

i see the issue, i have made a fix for next release


> and i lose I lose the alphabetical order in each drop-down menu in my submission form

do you mean select fields ?

- the select fields display options in the order that you entered them in configuration,
it is not a bug

Hello

1. about "User profile" field will include the updated field in 3.3.2

Any release of 3.3.1.x will have only bug fixes
But since we have a branch with this, you can have it earlier, but you will have to install a version that will be a little less tested

2. about ordering in flexicontent custom fields: (unless you meant something else)
select
selectmultiple
checkbox
checkboximage
radio
radioimage

the ordering was always the order that you have added them in field configuration
this has not changed, if you need them alphabetically you can reorder them yourself in field's configuration via drag and drop
if the values come from an SQL query, then use an ORDER-BY clause

Hello,

this new (beta) field seems to work fine in my testing website, thank you!

after upgrading to FLEXIcontent 3.3.1.5 doesn't contain "User (Contact, Community Builder, JomSocial)" field.

when do you release the stable release of this?
