Hi guys,

I have a weird thing.
I wanted to add a user but it was not working.
so i checked with the fields in the backend and i tried to add fields to different groups but i can't find anyway to publish the email or username anywhere.

Probobly i am missing something but i cant figure it out.
If i want to publish username or email i get this.


Any idea what i am missing here?

Email field
sorry but is not possible to disable email field because it is required by Joomla.

Username field
To disable username field you need to set parameter called "Login Type" to "E-Mail" in Easy Profile options.

I understand, but it is now not visible and not changeable.
I do not know how to show it in the backend.

It is now impossible to add a user in backend because the email field is not there :-)

mmh, this is strange.

anyway to enable these fields you need to use some DB tool like phpMyAdmin, it is provided by almost all hosting companies.
From this tool you need to launch a query like:
UPDATE #__jsn_fields SET published = 1 WHERE alias = "email" OR alias = "username"
NOTE: replace #__jsn_fields with the correct name of your table (joomla table prefix + jsn_fields).

If you are not able to do something like this then we can do this for you, therefore we need a backend access
