Our users can't edit their profiles.
They just get a red bar with no indication of the problem. see screen shot.
Any ideas what I have done wrong??

username is hidden and generated by the system because the login format is set to "E-mail". But it still need to be available in edit profile form in a hidden way (this is required by Joomla).

You have set a custom format to limit the input of the user for "username" field (see the "format allowed" parameter in screenshot). Now I have set this parameter to "No" and the update user works again ;)

Understood. We changed it last year from username to email because people forgot their user names and email was easier for them to remember.
Thanks for your speedy response to my issue, very much appreciated.
Kind regards
