Support » Plugin: Ultimate Member - User Profile & Membership Plugin » Required fields not working with conditional logic

  • Ultimate member ignores the “required” attribute, when creating a field with conditional logic.

    The field does show up, but I can send the registration even when it is not filled.

    Any ideas on how to fix that?

    Hi @ultimatemembersupport,

    i’m having the same issue as @mindflipmedia. Already tried deactivating any other plugins and switching to a standard theme, nothing changes, the issue still occurs.

    Any tips on that?



    confirmed, happening to me too.

    Ultimate Member v1.3.88 on vanilla WordPress v4.9.4 without any other plugin.
    Conditional fields can be submitted empty even if they are required.

    EDIT: it happens the second time you submit the form.

    The first time $array['required'] (in core/um-actions-form.php) is correctly set to 1.

    The second time you submit the fields, $array['required'] is 0

    checking what’s going on in um_get_custom_field_array($array, $fields) in core/um-filters-fields.php

    Ok I guess I found the bug:

    in core/um-filters-fields.php

    if( isset( $_POST[ $metakey ] ) && isset( $array['conditional_value'] ) && $_POST[ $metakey ] !== $array['conditional_value'] )

    must become:

    if( isset( $_POST[ $metakey ] ) && isset( $array['conditional_value'] ) && $_POST[ $metakey ][0] !== $array['conditional_value'] )


    if( isset( $_POST[ $metakey ] ) && isset( $array['conditional_value'.$a] ) && $_POST[ $metakey ] !== $array['conditional_value'.$a] )

    must become:

    if( isset( $_POST[ $metakey ] ) && isset( $array['conditional_value'.$a] ) && $_POST[ $metakey ][0] !== $array['conditional_value'.$a] )

    basically $_POST[ $metakey ] is an array so it was missing the index [0]

    I hope this is correct, it works for me

    Where can I find that code in order to correct it?
    Thank you


    As I wrote, it’s in the plugin’s folder, in core/um-filters-fields.php.

    Lines 310 and 313, anyway you can search for it with your text editor.


    Now the code looks different and i don’t know how to fix the bug.

    Could somebody help me?
