Custom Field Value not shown if edit permission be denied!

Post by greenreptile » Sun Jul 21, 2019 8:44 am

Hello

Recently I faced with an strange behaviour of User Custom Fields in Joomla. This is the scenario :

1- Registered User fill a field value.
2- I change the Edit permission to "denied " state.
3- In profile page, that field is not just read-only, its empty.
4- When I reverse the permission, the value is empty now!

Why Joomla do that and not fetch the previous value?

I want to disable future editing and not clearing the old values.
Thank you for any help.

Hi,

Are you using default Joomla! template or other template? If you have other template, do you have any HTML override?
