Adding genders and hiding real names

Mick Dawlings Posted in Technical Support 9 months ago

I have a site where users should be relatively anonymous.
This that sign up should not ask for first and last name, just the alias they would like to be known as.
Of course the rest too such as email, password, gender, optional phone number as some like to be verified using number of email.

I also need more genders but all I can find this is 4 year old component.

I'm sorry, yes I see that. I was saying I wasn't aware of that because there's no actual manual for the platform that I can find. As mentioned, I found this manual but am not sure if it's useful or not.

In users menu find Users Fields. Do you have it?

It seems I am not finding some things that might be documented. Is there a user manual, doc, information somewhere that is updated as ossn is also updated? I could look at that to try and find answers as well as Googling.

Go to admin panel, users , custom fields and edit genders and add more options

Does anyone know how to add more genders and have that show by the username?

LOL, totally lost track of the original question which was how to add genders.

Nice, that might solve my problem. Thanks, I'll take a look at that.

I asked this before in other posts. Is there a way I can tell if a component will work, even it is shows not being updated?
I would hate to start using something that seems to work but has some issues we're not aware of until it's too late and many have started using it.

It works fine unless you are using Anonymous registration it requires disabling that component.

BTW, this one would be great for a situation I have;

However, it's not updated and I see others complaining they had to disable things because of that.
That's my fear about using a lot of components, having to disable things that our members would be using by then. It would frustrate them to no end.

Our goal is to make sure previous components works on latest OSSN version. Unless there is a update in CSS framework like boostrap then we need to make sure if UI is not broken and make components work on latest bootstrap, js version.
