Change to County / Area / Region user profile field


Post by Keith » 29 Jan 2017, 18:22

Having managed to get a list of all UK Scout Counties, Areas and Regions (all County equivalent level) I have now replaced the text field where users were asked to enter this information with a new dropdown list.

This new dropdown menu contains a list of every Scout County in England, Region in Scotland, Area in Wales and Northern Ireland plus British Scouting Oversees and an option for Non-UK Scouts at the bottom for those outside of UK Scouting.

As we had to do this as a new field, rather then editing the existing one it will mean that if or when you edit your profile, you'll have to select it. This information will now be shown on your profile, the members list and on topics so that others know where abouts you Scout. District and Group fields can ONLY be seen by Admins, Moderators and yourself and are not visible to other users or visitors.
