I have created a custom member field in the CP and set it to "required", "show in registration" and "show in profile". However, it doesn't show up in the form when I register a new member in the CP and it doesn't show up in their profile when I go to edit a member.

I can see that the field was created correctly because it is in the exp_member_fields table. Am I doing something wrong that it is not in the form to register anyone and that I can create a new member without filling out that field? I am not using any plugins currently (developing a new site).

Thanks for any help anyone can give!

It's a known bug that has been reported to Ellislab - https://support.ellislab.com/bugs/detail/21118/member-custom-fields-not-showing-on-profile-edit

Ok. I decided to look at this since we need this for our site. I have a fix for the new member registration page (not letting them be edited from the CP yet, that is next). Using EE3.0.0, in file system/ee/EllisLab/ExpressionEngine/Controller/Members/Create.php, there are two places that need to be changed.

To show fields, change function index() and add code to actually check for custom fields. Here is how I did it (I’m sure there are better ways):

Line 65 - 134 changed:

                 );

    $vars['sections'][] = $tmp_final;

    $tmp_validation[] = array(

             'label'   => 'lang:member_group',
             'rules'   => 'required|integer|callback_valid_group_id'
        );
    $tmp_validation[] = array(
             'field'   => 'username',
             'label'   => 'lang:username',
             'rules'   => 'required|trim|valid_username'
        );
    $tmp_validation[] = array(
             'field'   => 'email',
             'label'   => 'lang:email',

            'field'    => 'password',

    $tmp_validation[] = array(
             'field'   => 'confirm_password',
             'label'   => 'lang:confirm_password',
             'rules'   => 'required|matches[password]'
        );

    ee()->form_validation->set_rules($tmp_validation);

Next, to get the fields to actually be inserted into the database, a couple of changes need to be made in function register_member(), at lines 292-294:

if ($this->input->post(‘field_id_’.$row[‘m_field_id’]) !== FALSE) { $cust_fields[‘field_id_’.$row[‘m_field_id’]] = $this->input->post(‘field_id_’.$row[‘m_field_id’], TRUE); } since the names of the columns in exp_member_data have dropped the ‘m_’ prefix on the column names.
