How to Show/Hide Empty Custom Fields

Let's say you want your users to see, on their profile in the profile info page, all of the custom fields so that they can be sure to fill them in (because if they see them, then they are more inclined to fill them in).

We have a setting for that.

AdminCP >> Settings >> Manage Settings >> Custom


In this is one setting (as of V3.7.4 build 2) which is:

Hide Empty Custom Fields

hide custom.png

If you set it to True, it hides empty custom fields.

If you set it to False, it shows the empty custom fields which encourages users to fill them in.

Be sure to Submit when making changes and to clear your cache after.
