Add a profile question with a specific key? | Forum

Blaire Jan 6 '19
I bought a plugin here and a feature of it does not work. In asking the developer about it, he says that the reason it is missing a feature is because I don't have a profile question using the specific key "match_sex".

I see in my error logs this confirmed:

Message: Undefined index: match_sex File: /home/xyz/public_html/ow_plugins/abc/classes/main_search_form.php Line:547

I know how to add a key ( /admin/settings/dev-tools/languages + Add New Text) but I don't know how to get that key to be applied to become a usable profile question.

The developer wasn't able to provide instructions.

I want to create a profile question using the specific key: match_sex


I want to be able to change a current profile question to use the specific key: match_sex

Does anyone know?

Unfortunately, we don't know which plugin you are talking about. So probably you need to change the key of the profile question, not the language value as you said.

To change a profile question key, first search for the existing key. To do so, go to the admin area > Users > Profile Questions. Perform a right mouse click on the question row you want to change and search for your debugger / development tools. For Firefox, have a look at this tutorial. In the code you'll find the attribute question_name="xxxxx" (replace xxxxx with the key of your question).

Now, visit your database (e.g. via phpMyAdmin) and make a backup. Then, search for the value xxxxx. Change all occurrences of this value to "match_sex", also if it's part of a string.

Not sure what plugin it is, but I believe if a plugin needs a specific profile question to function, it should be creating that unique question key itself.
