Sex shown incorrectly on friends page - Friends | Forum

Henrik Jan 14 '13

I allow users to have more than one sex on my site, and male and female are not the only options. This works fine, except for on the friends page, which shows something like


8 37

instead of a list of sexes.

The same problem occurs when users are notified online or by mail about new friend requests.

Does Oxwall recognize this as a bug?

Henrik, I wasn't able to reproduce the issue.

Here are settings of my question in admin panel:

Here is outcome in "My Friends" section:

If you are still facing this issue, can you take a screen shot of your question's settings?

I have changed the Answer type to "Multiple choice" and the strange output on the friends page and in notifications occurs when users choose more than one gender. A single gender works fine.

I'll get back to you with screen shots.

Here comes the screen shots:

Making gender a multiple choice question:

Choosing at least two different genders when editing the profile:

The strange outcome on the friends page:

It seems that gender is no longer shown in online and email notifications, so the friends page is currently the only place where this problem occurs.

I think the problem is that this test user was registered before you have created those profile multiple questions. He/she needs to edit their profiles for those questions to take effect. 

Users who will register after the time you had created these profiles questions, won't have such a problem

Thank your for your reply. Unfortunately, that is not the case. I created the multiple choice question already in February 2011, running Oxwall 1.0, and the test user wasn't created until May 18, 2013, when I needed to produce the screen shots Aliia requested.

For those who face this in future, try enabling DEV mode in config. php.
