[resolved] Make custom fields read only? (4 posts)

    Hi, how can I make a number field read only for all except admins? I see a six month old thread with the same question but the answer doesn't really explain the steps taken.

    Any advise appreciated.

    Add the "readonly" attribute to the field.

    In UMM's custom meta editor, in the "Additional Attributes" field, you would enter -
    readonly

    or

    disabled="disabled"

    The value can still be changed by admin using UMM's interface.

    Important note: This does not prevent data from being passed by a malicious user. A user can manipulate the DOM with a code inspector and then submit the form.

    Hello,
    If I do read only a user profile field, I can't modify it. from user administrator for example.
    I need the user profile fields are read only for all users except user's administrator.

    Thank you very much.

    Regards.
