Default value for checkbox field not populating with the value placed in "default" field of field form.
Expected checkbox to have one check initialized when a new account is created.

It is a default value in the registration form, but if the field is not available then it will not be filled with any value.

You can fill the value by creating a simple plugin, follow these steps:
- Download, Install and Enable Skeleton Plugin (you will find it at http://docs.easy-profile.com/index.php/article/triggers)
- Open file /plugins/jsn/skeleton/skeleton.php
- Remove samples functions: triggerFieldAvatarUpdate, triggerProfileUpdate
- Add function like this:
public function triggerProfileUpdate($user,&$data,$changed,$isNew){ 
if($isNew) { /* Only new users */
$data['alias_of_the_field'] = "value"; /* Assign the value */
}
}


NOTE: This code is not tested and not supported, this is only for example purpose. You need to have a minimum of PHP knowledges

Hi, you can do this by adding a code like this to the script
public function triggerProfileUpdate($user,&$data,$changed,$isNew){ 
if($isNew) { /* Only new users */
$data['alias_of_the_field'] = "value"; /* Assign the value */

require_once(JPATH_SITE.'/components/com_jsn/helpers/helper.php');
$usergroup = 26; /* Change 26 with the id of the usergroup */
JsnHelper::addUserToGroup($user,$usergroup);
// To remove from usergroup you can use a function like this: JsnHelper::removeUserFromGroup($user,$usergroup);

}
}

Here is what I am inserting with the Skeleton Plugin...

defined('_JEXEC') or die;

class PlgJsnSkeleton extends JPlugin


public function triggerProfileUpdate($user, &$data, $changed, $isNew)
{
if ($isNew) { /* Only new users */
$data['preferred_contact_method'] = "E-mail"; /* Assign the value */
$data['newsletter_type'] = "General"; /* Assign the value */

require_once(JPATH_SITE.'/components/com_jsn/helpers/helper.php');
$usergroup = 17; /* Change 26 with the id of the usergroup */
JsnHelper::addUserToGroup($user,$usergroup);
// To remove from usergroup you can use a function like this: JsnHelper::removeUserFromGroup($user,$usergroup);

}
}
?>


Can I add a check for what newsletter selection they made on the checkbox element and then add the user to their selected choice to the corresponding User Group... I could put the User Group ID in the Check box value... Possible?

Can I add a check for what newsletter selection they made on the checkbox element and then add the user to their selected choice to the corresponding User Group... I could put the User Group ID in the Check box value... Possible? or even an existing acymailing list? I have some code for acymailing list insertion. Wondering if I could include it in the check routine for checking what selections were made in the checkbox options.

Hi,
yes but we does not know the correct way, in the skeleton plugin you can also insert a code to add user to acymailing list by using acymailing apis (https://docs.acymailing.com/developers/acymailing-developer-documentation#insert-a-user-in-acymailing).

So can we do a check for the values selected in the checkbox at the time of editing a profile or at registration?
