The System - Required Fields plugin is designed to keep your user profile fields filled and current. This is accomplished by redirecting users to their profile edit screen when they have any required field that is un-filled. Until they meet the field requirements, they cannot leave the profile edit screen.

Keep their information up-to-date by setting a "Revisit Interval". When a user has not saved their profile recently enough, this plugin redirects them to their profile edit screen to review their information. Upon saving their profile, the revisit interval is reset and they can once again browse your site.

Additional configurations allow you to remove the field requirements and revisit requirements from certain user groups.

I wrote this plugin to serve another purpose on my own sites, I wanted to have fields that were required for users in the front-end, but not required for me in /administrator. This way I could edit a user profile, without having to fill in field values that I might not know. So, any selected field will no longer be required when editing a profile in /administrator.

Take a look at the GDPR Bundle to save 20% on all of my GDPR extensions!

Paid Extension FAQ

What am I buying?
  • The extension
  • One year of updates
  • Support
Do you still support free versions?
Only bugfixes
Can I install the extension on multiple sites?
Go for it
Can I give a copy to my friend?
While this is ethically wrong, there is no easy way for me to stop it. However, if your friend wants support he should call you - because I won't talk to him unless he purchases the extension.
What happens to the extension at the end of the year?
Nothing. It remains installed and configured, it just stops receiving updates and support is suspended.
What if I give you an idea that you turn into a paid extension?
You'll be given a lifetime subscription for that extension.
What if I contract you to make a custom extension for me?
There are two options, and I may or may not offer both.
  1. You will be given a quote for outright ownership of the extension.
  2. If it's something that I believe will benefit the community, I may offer a reduced quote where I retain ownership along with the promise that it will remain a free extension.
